Verse 1

I used to play around with hearts

Hasten to my call,

When i met that little girl,

I knew I would fall

Chorus:

Poor little fool, oh yea,

I was a fool, Uh huh

(Uh huh, poor little fool, I was a fool, Oh yea)

Verse 2

She played around and teased me,
With a carefree devil eye
She pulled me close and kissed me,
But her heart was full of lies

Repeat Chorus

She told me that she cared for me,
And that we'd never part
So for the very first time,
I gave away my heart

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4

Next day she was gone and I,
Knew she lied to me
She left me with a broken heart,
Won her victory

Repeat Chorus

Verse 5

I played this game with other hearts,
But I never thought I'd see
The day when someone else would play
Love's foolish game with me

Repeat Chorus
