I was born a king of fools most
People think I'm just a playboy
Breaking rules. But they don't
Know that when it comes around
To love I always lose that's why
I call myself the king of fools.
I was born never to care but
Now I want a love that I can
Share. I've searched in vain for a
Love that would never be true
That's why I call myself
The King of Fools
[Chorus:]
King of fools, king of fools
When it comes around to love I always lose

I was born without a good
Thought just to live fast, tell a
Lie and break a heart. I have
Broken many hearts and I've
Broken many rules that's why
I call myself the King of Fools.
I was born the King of Fools
At any other game I never lose.
But when it comes around to
Love that's when I realize
I was born the king of fools.

    While I never lied or broke hearts I always remember being the king of fools caring more about others then about myself & being the best person & friend I could be even to those who were never going to be the same type of people to me. Truly a king of fools.
