Foolish

Album: I'm Coming Home (1973)
  • Folks say I'm naturally kind
    I'd like to think that they're right
    They say I'm kind but in their minds
    They're really laughing at me

    I'll lend a hand to any man
    And if that's wrong then you can

    Call me foolish, foolish, foolish, foolish am I
    That's what they call me
    Foolish, foolish, foolish, foolish am I

    They say that I'm out of my mind
    I let the world walk on me
    Good friends of mine say that I'm blind
    They take advantage of me

    Is it a crime just to be kind?
    And if that's wrong then you can

    Call me foolish, foolish, foolish, foolish am I
    That's what they call me
    Foolish, foolish, foolish, foolish am I

    Call me foolish, foolish, foolish, foolish am I
    That's what they call me
    Foolish, oh, foolish, so foolish, foolish am I

    Everyone calls me foolish, foolish, foolish
    So foolish am I
    That's what they call me foolish, foolish Writer/s: BRUCE HAWES, JOSEPH B. JEFFERSON, LINDA CREED, LINDA DIANE CREED, THOM BELL, THOMAS RANDOLPH BELL
