Everybody plays the fool sometime
There's no exception to the rule
Listen, baby, it may be factual, may be cruel
I ain't lying, 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
Oh, 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, sometime
They use your heart like a tool
Listen, baby, they never tell you so in school
But everybody plays the fool
How can you help it when the music starts to play
And your ability to reason is swept away
Oh, heaven on earth is all you see
You're out of touch with reality
Now you cry but when you're through
The next time someone cries for you
