Tangled up and twisted,
And I don't know what to do. 
I'm living with Marie Antoinette, 
She's living with a fool. 
Life with her majesty,
Has got one golden rule.
No matter what she will let me forget, 
That I can't have her cake and eat it too. 

So bring me in and take me down, 
There's nothing I wouldn't do. 

[Chorus]
I'm a fool for the taking, 
So, baby take me down, 
I'm a fool for the taking, 
I'm not that dumb, but I don't mind faking. 
A fool for the taking, 
Yeah, a king without a crown, 
A fool in the making, 
I can take what you give, 
'Cause you got me hypnotised. 

Wrapped in your velvet robe, 
On your princess phone, 
Are you afraid to find out what,
Might happen when I get you all alone? 

So bring me in and take me down, 
There's nothing I wouldn't do. 

[Chorus]

So bring me in and take me down, 
There's nothing I wouldn't do. 

[Chorus]

I'm a fool for the taking,
So, baby take me down, 
I'm a fool in the making,
I'm not that dumb, but I don't mind faking.
