"Words Of Love" as written by and John Edmund Andrew Phillips....
Words of love, so soft and tender
Won't win a girls heart anymore
If you love her then you must send her
Somewhere where she's never been before
Worn out phrases and longing gazes
Won't get you where you want to go, no
Words of love, soft and tender
Won't win her

You oughta know by now
You oughta know, you oughta know by now
Words of love, soft and tender
Won't win her anymore

You oughta know by now
You oughta know, you oughta know by now
Words of love, soft and tender
Won't win a girls heart anymore
If you love her then you must send her
Somewhere where she's never been before
Worn out phrases and longing gazes
Won't get you where you want to go

Words of love, soft and tender
Won't win her anymore, anymore

    General CommentI read that John wrote this song during one of his and Michelle’s many breaks during their marriage. They wound up separately at the same club one night. John was all googly-eyed at Michelle, trying to get across to her that he missed her and wanted her back, but she wasn’t having none of it. He wrote this song about that experience, what he learned from it.

    I also read that John really pushed Cass during the recording of the song and that she really gave her all for the big finish. . . so much that she passed out after the last note because she was so out of breath. I heard Michelle say that John could be a bastard while recording, really trying their nerves and pushing them hard but that he was almost always right, getting great performances from them.

    This is a really fun, cute song. Cass does a great job, but the rest of them add some great backup. I’ve read that it has a “dancehall” sound to it. I don’t rightly know what that means. I think it’s very British. Whatever, I love the hell outta this song.

    There are actually two versions of the song floating out there. One is, I think, the one that’s out there on the gagillion M&P greatest hits collections. The other is the version released as a mono single back in the day. The latter is my preference. It includes horns and some other kinda subtle additions that just make the song even better.

    General CommentMetalFairy has it 100% positively wrong. "Romance" and "working harder" and "more responsibility" is precisely what Cass says doesn't win a girl's heart. Instead, she needs to be sent "somewhere where she's never been before." I've always taken this to obviously mean wild, extreme, mind-blowing, sex that is better than anything else she has ever experienced.
