Paul Bodden: Music & Lyrics

Fool For Love

(PAUL BODDEN, vocals; SETH WEINSTEIN, piano)
Words & music by Paul Bodden
1.
Call me a FOOL FOR LOVE,
Won't go to school for love,
'Cos the school’s got a rule
Says, "Don't be a FOOL FOR LOVE."

2.
Yes, I’m a FOOL FOR LOVE,
Won't be too cool for love.
Let me drop, go kerplop
Down deep in that pool of love.

I love love,
Bright and breezy,
Lazy love,
Light and easy.
I love love,
Dark and stormy
Give me love wrap it up
And mark it, "For me!"

3.
Some folks are cruel for love.
They fight a duel for love,
They have fun with their gunplay
But I say, "Okay: call me a fool."
Just call me a fool.

I love love,
Bright and breezy,
Lazy love,
Light and easy.
I love love,
Dark and stormy
Give me love wrap it up
And mark it, "For me!"

4.
Some folks just pine for love.
They weep and whine for love.
As for me,
You can see I'm just a fool,
Let me drop,
Go kerplop in that lovely pool,
Have more fun
Than the one who's much too cool,
Break the rule
Of ev'ry school
'Cause I'm a FOOL FOR LOVE.
