David Ruffin – Statue Of A Fool lyrics

~Verse 1~
Somewhere there should be,
For all the world to see.
A statue of a fool made of stone.
An image of a man,
Who let love slip through his hands,
And then let him stand there all alone.

~Chorus~
So build a statue,
Oh, build it high.
So the world can see,
And inscribe the world's greatest fool,
And name it after me.

~Verse 2~
And there on his face,
A gold tear should be placed,
To honor every tear he's shed
And I think it would show,
Then everyone would know,
Concealed inside is a broken heart.

~Chorus~
So build a statue,
Oh, build it high.
So the world can see,
And inscribe the world's greatest fool,
And name it after me.

Mmhm...

So build a statue,
Oh, build it high.
So the world can see,
And inscribe the world's greatest fool,
And name it after me.

Yeah,
And name it after me.
