Statue Of A Fool
David Ruffin Lyrics


Somewhere there should be, for all the world to see
A statue of a fool made of stone
An image of a man who let love slip through his hand
And then let him stand there all alone

So, build a statue and, oh, build it high
So the world can see
And inscribe, 'The World's Greatest Fool'
And name it after me
Mmm, and there on his face, a gold tear should be placed
To honor every tear he shed
And I think it would show and everyone would know
Concealed inside is a broken heart

So, build a statue and, oh, build it high
So the world can see
And inscribe, 'The World's Greatest Fool'
And name it after me

So, build a statue and, oh, build it high
So that all can see
And inscribe, 'The World's Greatest Fool'
And name it after me, yeah, yeah
And name it after me

This is redemption for David, he knew he did some bad things and hurt people close to him but in this incredible song he is admitting his mistakes and telling the world he is sorry. How one guy can have so much more soul than the rest of us is amazing.. A truly great great singer.
