When I come home baby
And Ive been working all night long
I put my daughter on my knee, and she say
Daddy what's wrong?
I put my head on her shoulder
She whispers in my ear so sweet
You know what she says?
Daddy you're a fool to cry
Youre a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why.

You know, I got a woman
And she lives in the poor part of town
And I go see her sometimes
And we make love, so fine
I put my head on her shoulder
She says, tell me all your troubles.
You know what she says? she says
Daddy you're a fool to cry
Youre a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why.

Daddy you're a fool to cry
Oh, I love you so much baby
Daddy you're a fool to cry
Daddy you're a fool to cry, yeah
She says, daddy you're a fool to cry
Youre a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why.

She says, daddy you're a fool to cry
Daddy you're a fool to cry
Daddy you're a fool to cry
Daddy you're a fool to cry

Even my friends say to me sometimes
And make out like I don't understand them
You know what they say
They say, daddy you're a fool to cry
Youre a fool to cry
Youre a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why.

Im a fool baby
Im a fool baby
Im a certified fool, now
I want to tell ya
Gotta tell ya, baby
Im a fool baby
Im a fool baby
Certified fool for ya, mama, come on
Im a fool
Im a fool
Im a fool
