  • When I come home baby
    And I've been working all night long
    I put my daughter on my knee, and she says
    "Daddy what's wrong?"
    I put my head on her shoulder
    She whispers in my ear so sweet
    You know what she says?
    "Daddy you're a fool to cry
    You're a fool to cry
    And it makes me wonder why"

    You know, I got a woman
    And she lives in the poor part of town
    And I go see her sometimes
    And we make love, so fine
    I put my head on her shoulder
    She says, "Tell me all your troubles"
    You know what she says?
    She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry
    You're a fool to cry
    And it makes me wonder why"

    Daddy you're a fool to cry
    Oh, I love you so much baby
    Daddy you're a fool to cry
    Daddy you're a fool to cry, yeah
    She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry
    You're a fool to cry
    And it makes me wonder why"

    She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry
    Daddy you're a fool to cry
    Daddy you're a fool to cry
    Daddy you're a fool to cry

    Even my friends say to me sometimes
    And make out like I don't understand them
    You know what they say?
    They say, "Daddy you're a fool to cry
    You're a fool to cry
    You're a fool to cry
    And it makes me wonder why"

    I'm a fool baby
    I'm a fool baby
    I'm a certified fool, now
    I want to tell ya
    Gotta tell ya, baby
    I'm a fool baby
    I'm a fool baby
    Certified fool for ya, mama, come on
    I'm a fool
    I'm a fool
    I'm a fool
