Remember "Everybody Plays the Fool"? A nice song.

"Okay, so your heart broke. You sit around and mope, crying, crying. You say you even thinking about dying. Well, before you do anything rash. Dig this. Everybody plays the fool, sometime. There's no exception to the rule. Listen baby. It may be factual, may be cruel. I ain't lying. Everybody plays the fool. Falling in love is such an easy thing to do. And there's no guarantee that the one you love is gonna love you. Loving eyes they cannot see. A certain person could never be. Love runs deeper than any ocean. It clouds your mind with emotion. Everybody plays the fool, sometime. There's no exception to the rule. Listen baby. It may be factual, may be cruel. I wanna tell you that everybody plays the fool. How can you help it. When the music starts to play and your ability to reason is swept away. Heaven on earth is all you see. You're out of touch with reality. And now you cry, but when you do, next time around someone cries for you. Everybody plays the fool, sometime. They use your heart just like a tool. Listen baby. They never tell you so in school. I want to say it again. Everybody plays the fool......" The Main Ingredient - "Everybody Plays the Fool" on "Soul Train."
