Does anybody here has any data on the speed of sound and its rate of change with temperature in solid metals?

In Macmillian’s data book on page 275 is such a table for liquids, showing that for all except one there’s a negative rate of change. Does this negative change mean that when a liquid is heated the speed of sound and therefore the speed of the atoms/molecules is lower?
