Lyrics OKAY,
SO YOUR HEART IS BROKEN.
YOU'RE SITTIN' AROUND
MOPING,
MOPING, MOPING,
CRYING, CRYING.
YOU SAY
YOU'RE EVEN THINKIN'
ABOUT DYING.
WELL,
BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING RASH,
BABY,
AH LISTEN TO THIS.

EV'RYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL
SOMETIMES.
THERE'S NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.
LISTEN, BABY.
IT MAY BE FACTUAL,
IT MAY BE CRUEL.
I AIN'T LYIN'.
EV'RYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL.

FALLING IN LOVE
IS JUST AN EASY THING TO DO.
BUT THERE'S NO GUARANTEE
THAT THE ONE YOU LOVE
IS GONNA LOVE YOU.
OH, LOVING EYES
THEY CANNOT SEE,
A CERTAIN PERSON
COULD NEVER BE.
LOVE RUNS DEEPER
THAN ANY OCEAN,
CLOUDS YOUR MIND
WITH EMOTION.

EV'RYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL
SOMETIMES.
THERE'S NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.
LISTEN, BABY.
IT MAY BE FACTUAL,
IT MAY BE CRUEL.
I AIN'T LYIN'.
EV'RYBODY 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.
AND NOW YOU CRY
BUT WHEN YOU DO,
NEXT TIME AROUND
SOMEONE CRIES FOR YOU.

HEY,
EV'RYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL
SOMETIMES.
THEY USE YOUR HEART
JUST LIKE A TOOL.
LISTEN, BABY,
IT MAY BE FACTUAL,
IT MAY BE CRUEL.
I AIN'T LYIN'.
EV'RYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL.

EV'RYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL
SOMETIMES.
THERE'S NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.
LISTEN, BABY,
IT MAY FACTUAL,
IT MAY BE CRUEL.
I WANNA SAY IT AGAIN.
EV'RYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL.

Lyrics I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU.

BUT IT'S GONNA TAKE MONEY,
A WHOLE LOTTA
SPENDING MONEY,
IT'S GONNA TAKE
PLENTY OF MONEY
TO DO IT RIGHT,
CHILD.
IT'S GONNA TAKE TIME,
A WHOLE LOTTA
PRECIOUS TIME,
IT'S GONNA TAKE PATIENCE
AND TIME,
TO DO IT,
TO DO IT,
TO DO IT,
TO DO IT,
TO DO IT,
TO DO IT RIGHT,
CHILD.

I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU.

AND THIS TIME
I KNOW IT'S REAL,
THE FEELING
THAT I FEEL.
I KNOW
IF I PUT MY MIND
TO IT,
I KNOW
THAT I CAN
REALLY DO IT.

I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU,
I GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU.

SET ON YOU,
SET ON YOU,
SET ON YOU,
SET ON YOU.

Lyrics DOES HE LOVE ME?
I WANNA KNOW.
HOW CAN I TELL
IF HE LOVES ME SO?
IS IT IN HIS EYES?
OH! NO,
YOU'LL BE DECEIVED.
IS IT IN HIS SIGHS?
OH! NO,
HE'LL MAKE BELIEVE.
IF YOU WANNA KNOW
IF HE LOVES YOU SO,
IT'S IN HIS KISS,
THAT'S WHERE IT IS.

IS IT IN HIS FACE?
OH! NO,
THAT'S JUST HIS CHARMS.
IN HIS WARM EMBRACE?
OH! NO,
THAT'S JUST HIS ARMS.
IF YOU WANNA KNOW
IF HE LOVES YOU SO,
IT'S IN HIS KISS,
THAT'S WHERE IT IS,
IT'S IN HIS KISS,
THAT'S WHERE IT IS.

SO KISS HIM
AND SQUEEZE HIM TIGHT
AND FIND OUT
WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW.
IF IT'S LOVE,
IF IT REALLY IS,
IT'S THERE IN HIS KISS.

HOW 'BOUT THE WAY HE ACTS?
OH! NO,
THAT'S JUST HIS WAY,
AND YOU'RE NOT LISTENING
TO THE WORDS I SAY.
IF YOU WANNA KNOW
IF HE LOVES YOU SO,
IT'S IN HIS KISS,
THAT'S WHERE IT IS,
IT'S IN HIS KISS.
THAT'S WHERE IT IS.

IT'S IN HIS KISS,
THAT'S WHERE IT IS,
IT'S IN HIS KISS,
THAT'S WHERE IT IS.

Lyrics IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

I KNOW YOU WANT ME
LIKE I WANT YOU,
AND AS MUCH
AS I LOVE YOU,
YOU LOVE ME TOO.
YOU KEEP ON PLAYING
THIS WAITING GAME,
MEANTIME,
HONEY,
MY HEART
IS IN PAIN.

BABY,
I'M APPEALING
TO YOUR DEEPEST
FEMININE FEELINGS
GIVE ME LOVE
AND NOT REJECTION,
BABY,
I'M STARVING
FOR YOUR AFFECTION.

IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

LOVE IS SUPPOSED
TO BE BEAUTIFUL,
WHEN THE FEELING
IS MUTUAL
AND IT'S MUTUAL,
THIS LOVE I KNOW,
SO WHY
MAKE ME SUFFER SO?

BABY,
I'M APPEALING
TO YOUR DEEPEST
FEMININE FEELINGS,
GIVE ME LOVE
AND NOT REJECTION,
BABY,
I'M STARVING
FOR YOUR AFFECTION.

IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

Lyrics ONE IN A MILLION,
A MILLION TO ONE,
MY WILDEST DREAMS
AND EVERY DESIRE
ROLLED INTO ONE.
I ONLY KNOW
I'VE GOT
TO MAKE HIM MINE,
WHATEVER IT TAKES,
I DON'T MIND
I'LL PAY ANY PRICE,
AND I'LL MAKE
ANY SACRIFICE
FOR HIM.
ONE IN A MILLION,
A MILLION TO ONE,
IF THERE IS A BOY
CREATED FOR ME,
THIS IS THE ONE.
AND ANY PART OF ME
HE WANTS TO CHANGE,
I'M HIS TO REARRANGE
ANYTHING
TO MAKE HIM SEE,
HE IS
THE ONE IN A MILLION
FOR ME.

I CAN'T BE WRONG,
I FEEL IT
TOO STRONG,
UNDERNEATH THE SUN,
HE IS THE ONLY ONE
FOR ME.

ONE IN A MILLION,
THAT CERTAIN SMILE,
THAT CERTAIN LOOK
THAT TELLS YOU
ONE KISS
WOULD DRIVE YOU WILD.
AND THAT'S WHY
I'VE GOT
TO MAKE HIM MINE,
WHATEVER IT TAKES,
I DON'T MIND
I'LL PAY ANY PRICE,
AND I'LL MAKE
ANY SACRIFICE
FOR HIM.

HE'S ONE IN A MILLION,
A MILLION TO ONE,
HE'S ONE IN A MILLION,
A MILLION TO ONE.
