When I come home, baby, and I've been working all night long
I put my daughter on my knee
And she says "Daddy, what's wrong?"
She whispers in my ear so sweet

You know what she says? She says
Ooh Daddy, you're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why

You know I've got a woman and she live in a poor part of town
And I go see her sometimes and we make love so fine
I put my head on her shoulder
And she say "Tell me all your troubles"

Oh I love you so much, baby
(...) want to sigh sometimes, yeah

Yeah, she say Ooh Daddy, you're a fool to cry

Even my friends say it to me sometimes
I make out like I don't understand them
You know what they say?
They say...

I'm a fool, baby, ah yeah
I'm a certified fool now, yeah
I want to tell you (...)
I'm a fool, baby, ah yeah
Certified fool for you, mama, yeah
Come on, yeah, I'm a fool
I'm a fool, yes
