All the big fools in town got together
Every hopeless lovin' heart I know was there
We all sat around and told our own best story
Then they made me the big fool of the year.
Oh, they gave to me a little golden statue
Of the torch that I carried for you, dear
They said no one else could even come close to me
And that I was the big fool of the year.
I'll put mine up beside
Any foolish love in town
'Cause there's none can hold a light
To this torch I carried round.
I can't say I'm to proud of the honor
But then I guess I do deserve it, dear
For to love you after all you've made me suffer
Surely makes me the big fool of the year.
Yes, you've made me the big fool of the year...
