Way back yonder in the days of old
The men was working but not saving any dough
Then came a woman looking real cool
She said to herself, "Now that's my fool"

I'm gonna ball tonight
I'm gonna ball tonight
Well, I can't break the rule because
Every man is some woman's fool

Met a girl on the avenue
She was shy and I was blue
Like a teacher and a student in school
Looked at me and said, "You're my fool"

I'm gonna ball tonight
We're gonna ball tonight
Well, I can't break the rule
That every man is some woman's fool

Way back yonder in the days of old
The men was working but not saving any dough
Then came a woman looking real cool
She said to herself, "Now that's my fool"

I'm gonna ball tonight
I'm gonna ball tonight
Well, I can't break the rule because
Every man is some woman's fool

We're gonna ball tonight
We're gonna ball tonight
We're gonna ball tonight
We're gonna ball tonight

Well, I can't break the rule
That every man is some woman's fool
