When I met you, oh
You know at first you had me so confused
We used to lay awake at night
Strugglin' with the feelings I so long refused
When I surrendered my love
I saw you turn your heart too cold to ice, darlin'
I put my heart on the line for you
Oh I did, I put my heart on the line, yeah
First you take me to the highest ground
Then you keep me hanging like some village clown

CHORUS:

It's such a fools' game, yeah
It's such a fools' game
I keep playing such a fools' game, yeah
I keep on playin', keep on playin' this fools' game
Yeah, this fools' game


I can't take another sleepless night
Tryin to light the fire down inside of you
I don't mind, I had to swallow my pride
To get us feeling like you never knew
You never knew
Got the secret in the palm of your hands
Will you keep it woman, will you break this man

It's such a fools' game, yeah
It's such a fools' game
I keep playing such a fools' game, forever
I keep on playin', keep on playin' this fools' game
Yeah, this fools' game


Girl I know, you're playin' full time
But it may be too late, when you make up your mind

Yeah You keep me in this fools' game
Forever in your fools' game
You got me caught up in this fools' game
Such a fools' game,.. How long... fools' game
How long ..will you keep me in this smooth game
Forever such a smooth game...Yeah Fools game
There's no way to win
As long as I'm in
To such a fools game
You waste my precious time
I put my heart on the line
You better make up your mind
Girl, don't try to keep me no more
You're tryin to keep me in your
