The Fool Is The Last One To Know
The Blue Shadows Lyrics


(*Billy Cowsill/Ralph Boden Johnson)


Now I'm just a working man*
And I've done all that I can
To keep you in your ribbons and your bows
Talk gets around
In a small country town
Where the fool is the last one to know
It takes a fool to do the things I do
Have to be a fool, a fool like me
To be so in love with you

Have your parcels growing cold
Is there someone that you hold
Lights die out when you're alone
Who's that so and so
Darling who's your Romeo
Oh the fool is the last one to know

It takes a fool to do the things I do
Have to be a fool, a fool like me
To be so in love with you

I overheard you on the phone
You were whispering sweet and low
Something that I'd never heard before
Saying just what lovers say
When two lovers talk that way
Yes the fool is the last one to know

It takes a fool to do the things I do
Have to be a fool, a fool like me
To be so in love with you

Yeah sure talk gets around
In a small country town
Where the fool is the last one to know
I guess the fool is the last one to know

Yes, I'm the fool and I'm the last one to know

They were so good.

HiPlanes Drifter

Yep, vastly under-rated, under-appreciated and under-aired.
