A Fool (For The Look In Your Eye)

     
 

I have studied for hours
In the pages of books
In the wisdom of ages
And wherever I look
At the end of the story
It is written that I will
Be a fool for the look in your eye

Oh they wasted their schoolin'
On a scholar like me
While I idle the hours
In a lone reverie
And with all of their learnin'
Oh the lesson's that I will
Be a fool for the look in your eye

Chorus
The look in your eye
It leaves me helpless
Oh the look in your eye
I can't say no
The way that I feel
Will overrule me
My heart will tell my mind
Which way to go, Oh, Oh

Gave me a paper
In Latin no less
It says we tried to help her
It says we did our best
Oh but how could they help me
When all the while I will
Be a fool for the look in your eye

Chorus

It must be amusin'
To hear me go on
With all of the answers
And all of them wrong
And all the while knowin'
That the truth is that I will
Be a fool for the look
A fool for the look
Fool for the look in your eye
Oh the look in your eye, baby
Oh, Oh, Yea, Yea


Jennifer Warnes
