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.
