Brinsley Schwarz – The Last Time I Was Fooled Lyrics

Well, the last time I was fooled
It almost blew my mind
Pretty women, they were everywhere
Not one of them was mine

I’d faced ten-thousand tomorrows
Instead of one today

You don’t say hi to no one
Or farewell when she goes away

Just last Saturday night
I was sittin’ in a nightclub, Jingle Jangle
Lookin’ for some chick to strangle
But it was just my foolish pride

Sometimes you alarm me
With ideas of this kind

But, when I’m caught in a cross-fire
Oh, I very seldom mind

Just the thought of something better
It keeps me on my toes
Welcome, sunshine, breathing hotter
And get a little closer to heaven, no

Well, the last time I was fooled
I clearly remember when

‘Cause I foolishly thought to myself
I won’t get fooled again

Just take a look at this person
Cooked in potato pie, yeah, yeah

And in answer to your questions
How can I possibly know why?

Oh, and just the thought of something better
It keeps me on my toes
Welcome, sunshine, breathing hotter
And get a little closer to home

Well, the last time I was fooled
Almost blew my mind
Pretty women, they were everywhere
Not one of them were mine

I’d faced ten-thousand tomorrows, believe me
Instead of one today

You don’t say hi to no one
Or farewell when she goes away

Oh, no, you don’t say hi to no one
Well, that is all I can say
