  • A brand new human being, razor sharp, all firm and tanned
    All clean, all pure, with a thirty-second attention span
    As the clock strikes twelve and we're ready for party games
    You play blind man's buff and I'll play out charades

    (Heaven knows) what kind of fool am I
    (Heaven knows) why you take an eye for an eye
    (Heaven knows) what comes over me
    You were pumping iron as I was pumping irony

    Now I find myself fully occupied and half alive
    With your head, heart, arms and legs wrapped around my family pride
    See the whites of their eyes then shoot
    With all the romance of the Ton Ton Macoute

    (Heaven knows) what kind of fool am I

    Nothing will show as we're shedding our clothes
    But then I suppose, anything goes, anything goes
    But then I suppose that anything, anything goes
    (Heaven knows heaven know)

    (Heaven knows) what kind of fool am I
    (Heaven knows) what comes over me
    (Heaven knows) what kind of fool am I
    Tell me please, please, please
    (Heaven knows) what kind of fool am I Writer/s: David Barratt, Philip Johnstone
