About Easier Said Than Done

"Easier Said Than Done" is a popular song sung by The Essex that was a number-one song in the United States during 1963. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on July 6, 1963, and remained there for two weeks. The song was written by William Linton and Larry Huff. The Essex were active-duty members of the United States Marine Corps at the time, as was Linton, who wrote the song at the request of Essex member Walter Vickers. Linton said the song's rhythm was inspired by the sound of the Teletype machines in the communications office at Camp Lejeune. The group was not thrilled with the song, but recorded it for use as the B-side of their debut single, "Are You Going My Way". The recording was unusually short, and editing was used to repeat part of the recording; even so, the song was only a little over two minutes. The single was released in May 1963, but "Easier Said Than Done" quickly emerged as the more popular side. The song became a major hit with broad appeal, reaching number one on both the pop and rhythm and blues charts. The song became the title track of the group's first album, which reached number 113 on the Billboard album chart, becoming their only charting album.

My friends all tell me
Go to him, run to him,
Say sweet lovely things to him,
And tell him, he's the one.

Deep in my heart I know it,
But it's so hard to show it
Cause it's easier, easier said than done.

My buddies tell me
Fly to him, sigh to him,
Tell him I would die for him,
And tell him, he's the one.

Although he gives me a feeling
That sets my heart a-reeling,
Yet it's easier, easier said than done.

Well, I know that I love him so.
I'm afraid that he'll never know
Because I (I-I) I get so timid and shy
Each time that I look him in the eye.

They all tell me 
Sing to him, swing with him,
And just do anything for him,
And tell him, he's the one.

I got a love so true
But I'm sad and blue
Cause it's easier, easier said than done.

Well, I know that I love him so.
I'm afraid that he'll never know
Because I (I-I) I get so timid and shy
Each time that I look him in the eye.

They all tell me 
Sing to him, swing with him,
And just do anything for him,
And tell him, he's the one.

I got a love so true
But I'm sad and blue
Cause it's easier, easier said than done.
Easier-er-er-er,  said than done.
