Taken for a Fool
Sister, it feels like just yesterday
Sister, don't you forget my number
On the door

You've got something and it's so good to see
Something wonderful that I could not be
Everybody hanging on for their lives
But you can't help them 'cause you don't have the time

I know everyone goes any damn place they like
I hope this goes over well on the toxic radio, yeah

You get taken all the time for a fool
I don't know why
You're so gullible but I don't mind
Oh, that's not the problem

And I don't need anyone with me right now
Monday, Tuesday is my weekend
You get taken for a fool all the time
I don't know why

Blame yourself for once, quit putting it on me
I can't let you 'cause I see what it means
It's so early, I don't want to wake up
Oh, we're so lucky 'cause we never grow up

Mama, it feels like just yesterday
Mama, don't you forget my number
I don't want to be the one at the door

I know everyone goes any damn place they choose
And I hope everyone well on the toxic radio
A tourist in the ghetto, not afraid of anything
Except death and anything else that could maybe hurt them, oh yeah

You get taken all the time for a fool
I don't know why
You're so gullible but I don't mind
That's not the problem

And I don't need anyone with me right now
Monday, Tuesday is my weekend
You get taken all the time for a fool
I don't know why

You get taken all the time for a fool
I don't know why
I don't know why
