fool em i fool r u lyrics – terry callier

well…
huh…

is this a game we play
just a phase we go through
is this the price we pay
will there be reperations too.
if we’re not careful what we say
if we ain’t careful what we do
what kind of fool am i
what kind of fool are you.

you can read it on the printed page
it’s a fender bender… and road rage
one for all and all for one
until some *sshole pulls a gun
somebody’s hurt and somebody cries
and somebody lives… somebody dies
and we hear pleas of innocence…
mental impairment and self defense.

hey what can the matter be
what’s happening with society
and what’s the ransom and the cost
to save a generation lost
who’s able to complete the task
solve the riddle and lift the mask
yeah pardon me but i just got to ask.

this a game we play
just a phase we going through
is this the price we pay
will there be reparations too.
if we’re not careful what we say
we ain’t careful what we do
what kind of fool am i
what kind of fool are you.

and so we catch the evening news
with all of these conflicting views
plague and famine..third world plights
poverty and womens rights
yea bishop when does life begin
and what’s a crime and what’s a sin,
hey is there some kind of master plan
to bring peace to the holy hands.

in brightest day or darkest night
there’s rifle fire left and right
and on this dark and dangerous road
how long before the world explodes
but one for the money… two for the show
if we got to reap just what we sow
hey pardon me but i just got to know.

is this a game we play
just a phase we going through
is this the price we pay
for reparations overdue.
if we’re not careful what we say
if we ain’t careful what we do
what kind of fool am i
what kind of fool are you.
