I've seen men look at her before
And they think, I don't see
I'd like to think it makes me proud
But, I'm only fooling me

I know she'll be lookin' back
The minute I'm not there
While she pours herself on some stranger
I pour myself a drink somewhere

She's actin' single
I'm drinkin' double
I hide my pain
I drown my troubles

My heart is breaking
Like the tiny bubbles
She's actin' single
I'm drinkin' doubles

I know all she plans to do
But I don't know where or when
If I ask who that stranger was
She'll just say, "an old friend"

I'm not weak, I tell myself
I stay because I'm strong
The truth is, I'm not man enough
To stop her from doing me wrong

She's actin' single
I'm drinkin' doubles
I hide my pain
I drown my troubles

My heart is breaking
Like the tiny bubbles
She's actin' single
I'm drinkin' doubles

She's actin' single
I'm drinkin' doubles
I hide my pain
I drown my troubles
