Fool For All



Every girl
in the world
oughtta be
Daddy's girl,
but the world
isn't open
to reason.


Never left
second best
never fail
any test,
she should know
Daddy loves her
like Jesus.


Rock'n'roll,
rock-a-bye,
rocky road
gotta ride,
rock of crack
'cuz there's no
rock of ages.


Hand to hold
ages old,
never led
to the fold,
rollin' smokes
from an old
Bible's pages.


She's a fool
for us all,
baby doll
watch her fall,
never known
any mercy
but rages.


Piece of eight,
piece of strange,
pieces all
rearranged,
put her trust
in the faith
of a stranger.


Every hand
is the hand
of an oft
promised man,
every step
is a leap
into danger.


Every girl
in the world
oughtta be
Daddy's girl.
She should know
Daddy loves her
like Jesus.


Never rest
second best
never fail
any test,
but the world
isn't open
to reason.


Hard to hold,
ages old;
never strayed
from the fold,
blowin' smoke
from an old
Bible's pages.


She's a fool
for us all,
baby doll,
see her fall,
never claimed
any mercy
but rages.
