Tommy's daddy kept a six pack in the fridge
We thought we were old enough to do what daddy's did.
It didn't take us long to go from drunk to really sick
When I walked in my house I stumbled just a bit.
You play it cool but it's no use,
Dad aint no fool and that's the truth
Chewing gum won't cover up that smell
You can't hide one single thought
If you try you'll just get caught
When somebody knows you that well.

We lost daddy in 1999
I took care of everybody's pain, except for mine,
Then one night my wife took my face in her hands
She said, “I think it's time you cry for your old man.”
You play it cool but it's no use
She aint no fool and that's the truth
And my tear drops finally fell,
You can't hide one single thought
If you try you'll just get caught
When somebody knows you that well.

I could probably do more to help my fellow man,
But life gets busy and I hope God understands
Someday when I get time, I'll do more than my share,
Funny how I'm thinkin' it sittin' in my easy chair,
You play it cool but it's no use,
God aint no fool and that's the truth,
And he won't let you fool yourself,
You can't hide one single thought,
If you try you'll just get caught
When somebody knows you that well.

When somebody knows you that well...
