I used to play around with hearts that hastened at my call,
But when I met that little girl I knew that I would fall.
(chorus)
Poor little fool, oh yeah, I was a fool, uh huh..
She played around and teased me with her carefree devil eyes,
She'd hold me close and kiss me but her heart was full of lies.
(chorus)
She told me how she cared for me and that we'd never part,
And so for the very first time I gave away my heart.
(chorus)
The next day she was gone and I knew she'd lied to me,
She left me with a broken heart and won her victory.
(chorus)
I'd played this game with other hearts but I never thought I'd see,
The day that someone else would play love's foolish game with me.
(chorus)

    I think she felt that he had known so many
    girls that he wasn't really ever serious about
    any one girl. Instead, he was just casual in his relationships with all of the young teenagers that he would meet. Maybe she somehow saw that to be the case and turned the tables, so to speak. I do know now that because of being foolish and taking things lightly, that back in those teenage times i lost a girl that i would have most likely married and loved for very many years. I wish that i had not shied away. I am crying some now for having lost her.
