Jackie Lomax – Only Fools (Fool's Paradise) lyrics

Only fools who love too long
Wait to hear a lover's song
When the world has moved along its way
- I guess I'll be a fool today.

Only those who hesitate
Wait until it's way too late
To rectify a pain too great to see
- I guess you'd be a fool like me.

An' I've waited too long
An' it's way too late for me.

Who's to say what's right or wrong
We all hear a different song
Playing where we don't belong or care
- I guess you might've been there
- I guess you might've been there.
