I got my dunce's cap and cardboard sword
And I'm droolin' as you talk to me
You say I should be in a mental ward
That might seem like home to me

'Cause I don't get it, I don't understand
And I think love's overrated
Why can't a woman be more like a man
Instead of complicated

Yeah, It takes a village idiot
Ooh, it takes the class clown
And his whole crew
There's one idiot
In this village, girl
I guess it isn't you

You wanna be listened to
And held and told
The things that really matter
But it's so subtle I just can't grasp hold
And all I know is idle chatter
You say it's simple but I'm simple, too
And I don't tell you this with pride
But when I put together two and two
I keep comin' up with five

Yeah, it takes a village idiot
To get things wrong
It takes the class clown
And his whole crew
There's one idiot
In this village girl
And I don't think is you

Do better than your best
This is not a test
That's what you keep tellin' me
Stop and think a bit
Only an idiot would
Look at a forest 
And just see a tree

It takes the class clown
And his whole crew
Ooh, yeah, it takes a village idiot
There's one idiot
In this village girl
I guess it isn't you
I guess it isn't you
I guess it isn't you, ooh
