BBM – Can't Fool The Blues lyrics

You can fool the landlord so you don't pay the rent
You can fool the world become the president
You can fool all the people some of the time
You can make a million dollars and cry I don't have a lousy dime

But you can't fool the blues
No you can't fool the blues yeah
When you're makin' all the rules it's so hard to lose
But you can't fool the blues oh no
You can fool the Romans into lending you an ear
Write a story in the papers believe in every smear
You can fool the rich by driving in a wreck
You can get up someone's nose every time you bounce a cheque

But you can't fool the blues
No you can't fool the blues yeah
You can't fool the blues you just laugh at each lie
Can't fool the blues, oh no
Play it for me

You can fool your brother into lending you his car
Rub up the waitress for some cocktails at the bar
You can talk some bimbo into taking you home
You can fool the wife into thinking you're alone

But you can't fool the blues
No you can't fool the blues yeah
Well the blues chews you up and spits you right out
You can't fool the blues oh no
