Words peaked at no 11 on the Go-Set National Top 40 on 20 March 1968.
Words by the Bee Gees was written by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb.
Robin Gibb said:
‘Words’ reflects a mood, It was written after an argument. Barry had been arguing with someone, I had been arguing with someone, and happened to be in the same mood. [The arguments were] about absolutely nothing. They were just words. That is what the song is all about; words can make you happy or words can make you sad.
