Everybody Plays The Fool Lyrics

by Aaron Neville

Okay, so your heart is broken
You're sitting around mopin', mopin', mopin', cryin', cryin'
You say you're even thinking about dying
Well, before you do anything rash, baby, listen to this

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
There's no exception to the rule, listen baby
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain't lying
Everybody plays the fool

Falling in love is such an easy thing to do
But there's no guarantee that the one you love is gonna love you
Oh, loving eyes they cannot see a certain person could never be
Love runs deeper than any ocean, it clouds your mind with emotion

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
There's no exception to the rule, listen baby
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain't lying
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
And now you cry but when you do, next time around someone cries for you

Hey, everybody plays the fool sometimes
Use your heart just like a tool, listen baby
They never tell you so in school, I wanna say it again
Everybody plays the fool

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
There's no exception to the rule, listen baby
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain't lying
Everybody plays the fool

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
There's no exception to the rule, listen baby
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I wanna say it again
Everybody plays the fool
