Have you ever really thought about it? I mean really ever thought about it?
All those words they didn't mean a thing
No, they did not mean a thing
Ahh, they did not mean a thing

When I said you were my one and true, when I said I'd never bother you
(Well) those words too they did not mean a thing
No, they didn't mean a thing
Now I'll practice chivalry

Oh, John it seems to me
You've all but lost the crest of your creed
Well-meaning though it seemed to be
Your focused fogged the point of your sick, tired, being

Shrouded now in smoke, we bleed
Cursing your name and all you lead
(And) so now as a roll from this scene
I wanted you to know that I never meant a single thing you see
In other words the gold, the gold was all I ever really (needed)
