|Melody:||Back to Roth's Song Index|
For there's no fool like an April fool
I thought I'd learned me lessons, but now I'm back in school
And there's no fool like an April fool
So I'll just drink and sit and think, how love can be so cruel.
Now I was just a fool for love -- I guess I lost me head
But she was young and pretty and she winked at me and said
Come sit ye down beside me and we'll have a drink or two
Her charms were irresistible... what else was I to do?
We passed a lovely evening there and when she asked me in
I knew that luck was with me (or perhaps it was the gin)...
The next thing I remember I was lyin' in the street
Without a stitch of clothing or the shoes upon me feet.
So now, your Honour, here I stand, and now I comprehend
Not every lass who smiles at you is bound to be a friend
So if you'll take a tip from me concernin' lovin's game
Don't trust a girl who swears to you that April is her name...
