Songwriter: Thompson, Wayne Carson

I've seen men look at her before
They think I don't see
I'd like to think it makes me proud
But I'm only foolin' me

I know she'll be lookin' back
The minute I'm not there
While she pours herself on some stranger
I'll 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 tiny bubbles
She's actin' single, I'm drinkin' double

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

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

She's actin' single, I'm drinkin' double
I hide my pain, I drown my troubles
My heart is breaking like 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
My heart is breaking like tiny bubbles
She's actin' single, I'm drinkin' doubles

She's actin' single, I'm drinkin' doubles
