HALF THE MAN (TWICE THE FOOL)
(Paul Jones / Tom McGuinness)
The Blues Band
When you were by my side
I would not be satisfied
I thought the grass was greener over the hill
You gave me your heart
But I held back a part
saying "Maybe" when I should have said "I will"
Now I must admit
that I could not commit
I thought I’d always be your Mister Right
And when you said "We’re through"
I said "There’ll be somebody new"
and let you walk away without a fight
Half the man and twice the fool I was
Had a master-plan – believed I was the boss
Now I’m at the hard knock school
‘cause I broke the golden rule
Now I’m half the man and twice the fool I was
A man can spend his days
in a melancholic haze
of yesterdays and how-things-used-to-be
Hindsight’s never wrong
Now I know where I belong
There’s no woman in this world but you for me
Time and time again
there were warnings from my friends
They said "You’ll lose her if you carry on this way"
But I was Mr Know-It-All
riding for a fall
When you walked out the blues walked in to stay
Half the man ………
Look at this three time loser
Now that you’re gone
I lost my heart, I lost your love
I lost the will to carry on
Half the man ……..
