  • Don't try to cry your way out of this
    Don't try to lie or I'll catch you in it
    Don't try to make me feel sorry for you
    Just because I'm blond
    Don't think I'm dumb
    'Cause this dumb blond ain't nobody's fool

    When you left you thought I'd sit
    An' you thought I'd wait
    An' you thought I'd cry
    You called me a dumb blond
    Ah, but somehow I lived through it
    And you know if there's one thing this blond has learned
    Blonds have more fun

    You flew too high up off the ground
    It's stormy weather an' had to come back down
    But I've found a new thread for my old spool
    Just because I'm blond
    Don't think I'm dumb
    'Cause this dumb blond ain't nobody's fool

    When you left you thought I'd sit
    An' you thought I'd wait
    An' you thought I'd cry
    You called me a dumb blond
    Ah, but somehow I lived through it
    And you know if there's one thing this blond has learned
    Blonds have more fun

    You flew too high up off the ground
    It's stormy weather an' had to come back down
    But I've found a new thread for my old spool
    Just because I'm blond
    Don't think I'm dumb
    'Cause this dumb blond ain't nobody's fool Writer/s: C. PUTMAN
