Lyrics Everybody Plays the Fool

OK, so your heart is broken
You sit around mopin' cryin' and cryin'
You say you're even thinkin' 'bout dyin'
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
Lovin' eyes they cannot see a certain person could never be
Love runs deeper than any ocean
You can cloud 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 want to tell ya but everybody plays the fool
How can you help it when the music starts to play?
And your ability to reason is swept away
Heaven on earth is all you see
You're out of touch with reality
And 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 want to say it again
Everybody plays the fool
Listen to me, baby
Everybody plays the fool sometimes
No exception to the rule it may be factual, may be cruel sometimes
But everybody plays the fool
Listen, listen, baby
