Lyrics

“Fool of fools
Wake up before she breaks your heart”
I warned myself from the start

Be prepared
For tears you’re gonna shed
To my heart I said,
“Why reach for love above your head?”

She’ll break the rules
She’s not the kind who could be true
You come from two different schools

Did I get burned?
Surprise, surprise
She really learned
To love this fool of fools
