Delbert McClinton - A Fool Like Me Lyrics




You've been hanging around from the get-go
Honey we had some fun
But now it's time for you to put on your shoes
And go back to where you came from
It's hard for me to be honest
But honey I'm telling you the truth
With what you've got, and what I'm not
You could put it all better use

I can't love somebody
Who would fall for a fool like me
A little sweetie pie with stars in her eyes
Is exactly what I don't need
If you don't want to get your heart broke
You oughta have enough sense to leave
Cause you don't want to be somebody who would fall for a fool like me

Now I don't want to meet your daddy
Your daddy he don't want to meet me
I don't want to get caught pickin' the fruit off of the family tree
Now you gonna thank me later
Honey you wait and see
Cause you don't want to be somebody
Who would fall for a fool like me

I can't love somebody
Who would fall for a fool like me
A little sweetie pie with stars in her eyes
Is exactly what I don't need
If you don't want to get your heart broke
You oughta have enough sense to leave
How could I love somebody who would fall for a fool like me...
