  • All cautions made
    Every chance was given
    No effort spared to save what we had
    All in good faith
    I would not hesitate
    To extend myself and lend you my hand

    But you had to play it cool, had to do it your way
    Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away
    Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
    If that were true, it wouldn't matter anyway

    As tempers fade
    And lies forgiven
    No cause embraced could break what we had
    In its place
    A storm is lifting
    I would've thought you could be more of a man

    But you had to play it cool, had to do it your way
    Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away
    Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
    If that were true, it wouldn't matter anyway

    Ayy-ay, ayy-ay
    Ayy-ay, ayy-ay

    Ayy-ay
    Ooh

    But you had to play it cool, had to do it your way
    Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away
    Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
    If that were true, it wouldn't matter anyway

    You had to play it cool, had to do it your way
    Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away
    Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
    If that were true, it wouldn't matter anyway

    You had to play it cool, had to do it your way
    Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away
    Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
    If that were true, it wouldn't matter anyway Writer/s: Guns N' Roses
