​Can't Fool The Blues

This song is by BBM and appears on the album Around The Next Dream (1994).

You can fool the landlord so you don't pay the rent
You can fool the world and become the President
You can fool all the people some of the time
You can make a million dollars
And cry "I don't have a lousy dime"
But you can't fool the blues
You can't fool the blues
When you re makin' all the rules it's so hard to lose
You can't fool the blues, oh no

You can fool the Romans into lending you an ear
Write a story in the papers believing every smear
You can fool the rich by driving around in a wreck
You can gel up someone s nose
Every time you bounce a cheque
But you can't fool the blues
No you can't fool the blues
You can't fool the blues it just laughs at each lie
Can't fool the blues, oh no

You can fool your brother into lending you his car
Rub up the waitress for some cocktails at the bar
You can talk some bimbo into taking you home
You can fool the wile into thinking you're alone
But you can't fool the blues
You can't fool the blues
That blues chews you up and Spits you right out
You can't fool the blues, oh no
