Be Your Fool

from by The Intrinsics

lyrics

You think I don’t hear
The back door slam closed
Every time I’m
A little early
Comin’ home

You think I don’t see
Your eyes watchin’ him
Oh, but darlin’
I got eyes
Of my own

Talkin’ in whispers soft and low
Late at night on your telephone

But I go on pretending
Just to keep you at home
'Cause I’d rather be your fool
Than be alone

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well I know a man
Has gotta maintain his pride
Oh but pride don’t mean nothin’, no, no no
Without you by my side

And if you don’t love me, oooh
I’ll take what I can
Cause baby who am I, who am I?
If I ain’t your man?

I know, oh, what I ought to do
Leave you behind, and find somebody new

Oh, oh, but it ain’t so easy
Being on your own
'Cause I’d rather be your fool
Than be alone

Yes I would, now honey, no
I don't wanna be alone
I said I don't wanna be alone, no, no
No, no, no, no, no
No, I don't wanna be alone now honey, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, why'd you have to?
I said-a why'd you have to?
Oh, why'd you have to go?
Ooooh!
Why'd you have to go?
Oh, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna be alone, no!
Why'd you have to go? Go, no
Why'd you have to go? I said-a why'd you have to go?
Why'd you have to go? No, no
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
