Track Title: Everybody Plays The Fool Album Title: Have A Nice Decade: disc 2 Prime Artist: The Main Ingredient Vocal: Cuba Gooding (Sr.) Written by: Jim Bailey Written by: Kenneth Williams Written by: Rudy Clark Lyrics: OK, so your heart's broken You sit around, mopin' Cryin', cryin' You say you even thinking about dying? Well, before you do anything rash, dig this: Everybody plays the fool sometime; There's no exception to the rule. Listen, baby, it may be factual, may be cruel, I ain't lying, everybody plays the fool. Falling in love is such an easy thing to do, And there's no guarantee that the one you love is gonna love you. Oh, lovin' eyes they cannot see a certain person could never be; Love runs deeper than any ocean, You can cloud your mind with emotion. Everybody plays the fool, sometime, They use your heart like a tool. Listen, baby, they never tell you so in school But 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 is all you see; You're out of touch with reality; Now you cry but when you're through The next time someone cries for you.
