taken for a fool lyrics – the strokes

“taken for a fool”

sister, it feels like just yesterday,
sister, don’t you forget my number, on the door.
you’ve got something and it’s so good to see,
something wonderful that i could not be.
everybody hanging on for their lives,
but you can’t help them ‘cos you don’t have the time.

i know, everyone goes any d*mn place they like.
i hope this goes over well, on the toxic radio. yeah.

you get taken all the time for a fool.
i don’t know why.
you’re so gullible but i don’t mind.
that’s not the problem.
and i don’t need anyone with me right now.
monday, tuesday is my weekend.
you get taken for a fool all the time.
i don’t know why.

blame yourself for once, quit putting it on me,
i can’t help you ‘cos i’ve seen what it means,
it’s so early i don’t want to wake up.
we’re so lucky ‘cos we never grew up.
mama, it feels like just yesterday.
mama, don’t you forget my number?
i don’t want to be the one at the door.

i know, everyone goes any d*mn place they choose.
and i hope everyone well on the toxic radio.
a tourist in the ghetto, not afraid of anything.
except death and anything else that could maybe hurt the most. yeah.

you get taken all the time for a fool.
i don’t know why.
you’re so gullible but i don’t mind.
that’s not the problem.
and i don’t need anyone with me right now.
monday, tuesday is my weekend.
you get taken all the time for a fool.
i don’t know why.
you get taken all the time for a fool.
i don’t know why.
i don’t know why.
