Well you tell me you want me
You say that you really care
Don't you tell me no lies
When you leave me, honey
You're gonna have a cross to bear

For there's two kinds of people I just can't stand
That's a lyin' woman or a beggin' man
Ain't nobody else gonna take my place
'Cause I'm just a fool for a pretty face

I been kicked, I been hit
But it didn't hurt a little bit
Kicked, pricked, no stick
Really not my finger bit
I've been hurt by love, oh yeah,
Hurt by love
I've been hurt by love
I've been hurt by love
I'm just a fool for a pretty face, oh yeah

Well I don't have no reason
To think that you'd mind
So why don't you keep your big mouth shut
Why don't you let your love light shine?
I don't wanna hurt ya
I ain't on your case
But you can bet a nickel to a worn out dime
I'm just a fool for a pretty face, oh yeah

[Repeat chorus]


Listen now

You seem so oh-so sweet
But how about your after-taste?
I've been hurt by love so many times before
Because I'm a fool for a pretty face

[Repeat chorus]

Hurt by love
I tell ya I've been hurt by love
Hurt by love
Hurt by love
I'm just a fool for a...
For a...
For a... Pretty face

Hurt by love
Hurt by love
I'm just a fool for a pretty face
