ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
 
div
 
The scene is Venice, (old place) a dream of Paradise
They are a pair of lovebirds honeymooning hang the price
And all is peace and happiness and Neapolitan ice
Observe their actions, such loving actions
'How heavenly' sighs Geraldine. 'Real grand' say Vere de Vere
She gives a little shudder. 'Oh I've caught a chill, I fear'
Then he tenderly adjusts her wrap for her, poor little dear
Observe his actions, such tender actions
Actions speak what words can never say
And when their honeymooning's done, and it's time to go away
You'll observe that Jack and Jill there,
You know, sitting back to back there
Well, actions speak louder than words, so they say.

A French girl comes to London, Oh appears she is so shy
She cannot comprehend their ways, is therefore?
She cannot speak the English, She can but use her eye
Observe her actions, such dainty actions
One morning cool in Rotten Row, she's sitting on a bench
A Johnny passing eyes her, says, 'By gad, a comely wench'
She cannot speak the English, he cannot speak the French
So they do actions, give thought in actions
Actions speak what words can never say
And when the darling looks at him in a very Frenchy way
You can bet a monarch's ransom, that the fellow calls a 'hansom'
Well, actions speak louder than words, so they say.
