"The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

~ Shakespeare

Hamlet Act 3, scene 2, 222–230

When we smugly declare that "the lady doth protest too much," we almost always mean that the lady objects so much as to lose credibility.

I'll learn to work the saxophone
I'll play just what I feel
Drink Scotch whisky all night long
And die behind the wheel
They got a name for the winners in the world
I want a name when I lose
They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
Call me Deacon Blues
