(THERE'S) NO FOOL LIKE AN OLD FOOL
Joseph A. McCarthy - Joseph Meyer
Peggy Lee with the Ralph Carmichael Orchestra
There's no fool like an old fool,
And I'm a prize fool out of the old school -
Though bells rang when I met you,
Still I let you get away.
No song like an old song -
How it reminds me that I was so wrong
To walk out - let the blues in -
That's a losing game to play.
Red leaves of autumn will flame again on the hill,
And I know come springtime that I'll remember you still.
No love like a true love,
And I've discovered there is no new love
To run to or to thrill to
Like the thrill you used to be.
It was my fault, losing your love,
And there's just one thing I'm sure of -
That there's no fool like an old fool
