Nat King Cole The Rules of the Road Lyrics

Last updated: 12/18/2013 05:44:25 AM

(Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh)


So these are the ropes,
The tricks of the trade,
The rules of the road.


You're one of the dopes
For whom they were made,
The rules of the road.


You follow that kiss and recklessly miss
A bend of the road,
Then suddenly this--
The end of the road.


So love is a hoax,
A glittering string
Of little white lies.
But these are the jokes,
And what if they bring
The tears to your eyes?


Well, love often shows a funny return.
The brighter it glows,
The longer you burn.
And Lord only knows
Love has little concern for the fools of the road.


But that's how it goes,
You live and you learn,
The rules of the road.


But that's how it goes,
You live and you learn,
The rules of the road.


And everyone knows that that's how it goes,
The rules of the road.
