HELEN REDDY lyrics - Poor Little Fool

HELEN REDDY
"Poor Little Fool"
(Jeff Lynne)

I used to play around
With hearts that hastened at my call
But when I met that little girl
I knew that I would fall

Poor little fool, oh yeah
I was a fool, uh huh

She played around and teased me
With her carefree devil eyes
She'd hold me close and kiss me
But her heart was full of lies

Poor little fool, oh yeah
I was a fool, uh huh

She told me how she cared for me
And that we'd never part
And so for the very first time
I gave away my heart

Poor little fool, oh yeah
I was a fool, uh huh

The next day she was gone
And I knew she'd lied to me
She left me with a broken heart
And won her victory

Poor little fool, oh yeah
I was a fool, uh huh

I'd played this game with other hearts
But I never thought I'd see
The day that someone else would play
Love's foolish game with me

Poor little fool, oh yeah
I was a fool, uh huh
