Record label of Australian release:
The Bee Gees made their US television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show on 17 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.”
