Cool To Be A Fool Lyrics

by Joe Nichols

Here I sit a nobody with no one
And bein' me ain't really all that fun
Leavin' her wasn't very smart
Admittin' I was wrong wouldn't be so hard

If it was cool to be a fool
I'd be the hippest guy around
If a heartache made you famous
I'd be known from town to town

If tears were made of pennies
And a cold beer brought her back
My bank account and self esteem
Would both be in the black

If some Hollywood producer made a movie that was sad
About some guy who lost the best thing he ever had
Hey, I could be a star if it was cool to be a fool

But we all know the way it really is
You don't get recognized for doin' things like this
You spend a lotta time feelin' sorry for yourself
It doesn't really mean that much to anybody else

If it was cool to be a fool
I'd be the hippest guy around
If a heartache made you famous
I'd be known from town to town

If tears were made of pennies
And a cold beer brought her back
My bank account and self esteem
Would both be in the black

If some Hollywood producer made a movie that was sad
About some guy who lost the best thing he ever had
Hey, I could be a star if it was cool to be a fool

If it was cool to be a fool
I'd be the hippest guy around
If a heartache made you famous
I'd be known from town to town

If tears were made of pennies
And a cold beer brought her back
My bank account and self esteem
Would both be in the black

And if some Hollywood producer made a movie that was sad
About some guy who lost the best thing he ever had
Hey, I could be a star if it was cool to be a fool
Hey, I could be a star if it was cool to be a fool
