        Actions speak louder than words

        That’s surely something you all will have heard


        Promises and lies year after year

        Why would people believe what they hear?


        If we really want to regain that trust

        Then by our actions we really must


        Show how much we mean it this time

        Our actions can show it’s not just a line


        If when we speak their trust is still fleeting

        Show them you mean it and get to a meeting


        If they think you’re trying to be funny

        Show them you’re serious and hand them your money


        They’ve heard it before, they may be rude

        So take them with you when you go to exclude


        Actions are louder it really is true

        So rather than words think “What can I do?”

          “Actions are louder , it really is true
          So rather than words think, “What can I do?”
          I can quash the first thought
          I can “stomp on the bug”
          Postpone the next bet
          and withdraw from the “drug”
          I can then call a friend
          Tell them what I intend
          And remind myself always
          Where gambling will end!
          Do things differently
          Look for new company
          Be accountable, honest,
          To you and to me
          I can hand over cash
          Put credit cards in the trash
          Surrender my car keys
          Go down on my knees
          To pray or scrub floors
          Whatever it takes
          To keep me from making
          More stupid mistakes!
          Examine the tools
          That I got from GT
          To find out which one
          Today is for me
          I have no more excuses
          To use fancy words
          It’s time now for ACTION
