THE RULES OF THE ROAD (Cy Coleman / Carolyn Leigh) Tony Bennett - 1961 Nat King Cole - 1961 Bobby Short - 1963 Rosemary clooney - 1964 Buddy Greco - 1964 Frankie Randall - 1966 Also recorded by: Lena Horne; Anita O'Day; Shirley Horn; Cy Coleman. So these are the ropes The tricks of the trade The rules of the road You're one of the dopes For whom they were made The rules of the road You follow that kiss And recklessly miss A bend of the road Then suddenly this The end of the road So love is a hoax A glittering string Of little white lies But these are the jokes And what if they bring The tears to your eyes Well love often shows a funny return The brighter it glows The longer you burn And Lord only knows Love has little concern For the fools of the road That's how it goes You live and you learn The rules of the road (Instrumental Break) Well love often shows a funny return The brighter it glows The longer you burn And Lord only knows Love has little concern For the fools of the road That's how it goes You live and you learn The rules of the road The rules of the road (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2004)
