Don’t Want To Be A Fool

Love, what have you done, oh wow
I was sure up till now
That she was a friend
I stayed till the end
Don’t be a fool again

I once believed that love was fair
But I don’t anymore
She said, “I’m a bore”
My heart hit the floor
Don’t be a fool any more

Each time around I tell myself
It’s the game of love
Ignore the signs and risk it all
In the name of love

Well I’ve decided I can’t
Let nobody hurt me again
So I’ll say it till the end
“I just don’t want to be a fool”
Don’t want to be a fool
Said, “I don’t want to be a fool ever again”

Whenever a fool’s in love
He doesn’t know he’s to blame
He’s caught in the game
It all ends up the same
He doesn’t feel the shame

He looks at love in a different way
It breaks his heart every time
They all turn estranged
But he’ll never change
He’s never going to change

Next time around I’ll tell myself
It’ll be better than before
I won’t look back
There’ll be no one
Tearing my heart out anymore

I’ve just decided I can’t
Let nobody fool me again
So I’ll swear till the end
I just don’t want to be a fool
Don’t want to be a fool
Said, “I don’t want to be a fool ever again”

No way, I mean no more
Never again, no never
Can’t be, noway, noway, noway
Ooh, I don’t want to be
I don’t want to be a fool no

I can’t love anybody
Walking on a one way street
Anyway, anyway, anyway, no
If I don’t find somebody
That’ll be alright with me
I know, I know, it’ll be alright now

‘Cause I decided not to
Let nobody kill me again
So I’ll say it till the end
“I just don’t want to be a fool”
Said, “I don’t want to be a fool
Never, never again”

Don’t want to be a fool
Can’t be a fool, no
Don’t want to be a fool
Never again
I don’t want to be a fool
Never, never, never again
Don’t want to be a fool
Can’t be a fool
