Everybody Plays the Fool
Okay, so you're heartbroken
You sit around mopin'
Cryin' and cryin'
You say you even think about dying?
Well, before you do anything rash
Dig this!

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
There's no exception to the rule
Listen, baby
It may be factual, may be cruel
I ain't lyin'
Everybody plays the fool

Falling in love is such an easy thing to do
And there's no guarantee that the one you love
Is gonna love you

Loving eyes, they cannot see
A certain person could never be
Love runs deeper than any ocean
Clouds your mind with emotion

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
There's no exception to the rule
Listen, baby
It may be factual, may be cruel
I ain't lyin'
Everybody plays the fool

How can you help it when the music starts to play
And your ability to reason is swept away?

Oh-oh-oh, heaven on earth is all you see
You're out of touch with reality
Now you cry. But when you do
Next time around, someone cries for you

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
They use your heart just like a tool
Listen baby. They never tell you so in school
I wanna say it again, everybody plays the fool

Listen to me, baby
Everybody plays the fool sometimes
(There's no exception to the rule)
No exception to the rule
Listen, baby. It may be factual, may be cruel sometimes
Everybody plays the fool

Listen, listen, baby
Everybody plays the fool
