Okay, so your heartbroken
You sit around hopin', cryin', cryin'
You say you're even thinking about dyin'
Well, before you do anything rash, well, dig this

Everybody plays the fool sometime
There's no exception to the rule
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain't lying
Everybody plays the fool

Fallin' in love is such an easy thing to do
And there's no guarantee, the one you love is gonna love you
Oh, lovin' eyes they cannot see a certain person you never have been
Love runs deeper than any ocean, clouds you're mind with emotion

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
There's no exception to the rule, listen baby
It may be factual, it may be cruel, I wanna tell you
Everybody plays the fool

How can you help it when the music starts to play
And your ability to reason is swept away
Oh, Heaven on Earth, you gonna see, the other step is reality
And now you cry, when you do, next time around someone cries for you

Everybody plays the fool sometimes
Use your heart just like a tool, listen to me baby
Never turn yourself a fool, I wanna tell you
Everybody plays the fool, one more time

Everybody plays the fool
There's no exceptions to the rule, yeah
It may be factual, it may be cruel
