Lyrics Quiz: Fools

Part A: "Fool" in the title.

  1. When I come home, baby, and I've been working all night long, I put my daughter on my knee, and she say, "Daddy what's wrong?"
  2. Well on his way, his head in a cloud, the man of a thousand voices, talking perfectly loud. But nobody ever hears him.
  3. And the parting on the left are now parting on the right. And the beards have all grown longer overnight.
  4. As he rises to her apology, anybody else would surely know, he's watching her go.
  5. The pack on my back is aching. The straps seem to cut me like a knife. I'm no clown, I won't back down. I don't need you to tell me what's going down.
  6. Unhand that gun, be gone. There's no one to fire upon. If he's holding it high, he's telling a lie.
  7. A dying flame, you're free again. Who could love and do that to you? All dressed in black, he won't be coming back. Save your tears, you've got years and years.

Part B: "Fool" in the lyrics.

  1. 'Cause we're living in a world of fools, breaking us down, when they all should let us be.
  2. He said, "Girl u better have fun no matter what u do." But he's a fool.
  3. Don't you know, little fool, you never can win?
  4. Something in your eyes is makin' such a fool of me. When you hold me in your arms, you love me 'til I just can't see.
  5. I find it very, very easy to be true. I find myself alone when each day is through. Yes, I'll admit I'm a fool for you.
  6. I am the maker of rules, dealing with fools.
  7. And if you ever have to go to school, remember how they messed up this old fool. Don't pick fights with the bullies or the cads, 'cause I'm not much cop at punching Other people's dads.

Eric adds three for Part A:

(a) Why do birds sing, so gay? And lovers await, the break of day?

(b) Going to the city, got you on my mind. Country sure is pretty, I leave
it all behind. This is my decision, I'm coming home to stay this time...

(c) Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining, like a star that
can't wait for the night. I hate to think I've been blinded baby, why can't
I see you tonight?
