Only A Fool Would Say That Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

A world become one of salads and sun only a fool would say that
A boy with a plan, a natural man wearing a white Stetson hat
Unhand that gun begone there's no one to fire upon
If he's holding it high, he's telling a lie

I heard it was you talkin' about a world
Where all is free, it just couldn't be
And only a fool would say that

The man in the street draggin' his feet, don't wanna hear the bad news
Imagine your face there is his place, standing inside his brown shoes
You do his nine to five drag yourself home half alive
There on the screen a man with a dream

I heard it was you talkin' about a world
Where all is free, it just couldn't be
And only a fool would say that

Anybody on the street has murder in his eyes
You feel no pain and you're younger then you realize
Only a fool would say that, only a fool

I heard it was you talkin' about a world
Where all is free, it just couldn't be
And only a fool would say that, only a fool would say that
Only a fool would say that
