(written by Andy Gibb)
You don't want to come home cryin'
Lose that magic in your smile
Give it up before you start it
Start to die

Why be a fool for a night
You'd be a fool to fall for a night
Gotta let it grow
Someone you don't really know
A fool for a night
You'd be a fool to fall for a night
Gotta let it show
Someone you don't really know

Old emotions , time has borrowed
Tend to make you think you're right
You're the one I'll follow
For all times

Why be a fool for a night
You'd be a fool to fall for a night
Gotta let it grow
Someone you don't really know
A fool for a night
You'd be a fool to fall for a night
Gotta let it show
Someone you don't really know

And if you run away
You can't escape from the price you pay ,oh no
And when you realize nobody else will care
Where are the friends you made
No one is left who can show the way , oh no
And when the burden ends , I will heal you
Time will turn you back to me

A fool for a night
You'd be a fool to fall for a night
Gotta let it grow
Someone you don't really know
A fool for a night
You'd be a fool to fall for a night
Gotta let it show
Someone you don't really know

A fool for a night
You'd be a fool to fall for a night
Gotta let it grow
Someone you don't really know
A fool for a night
You'd be a fool to fall for a night
Gotta let it show
Someone you don't really know
