The Fool


three in the bed and the little one said oh no
you can roll me over but i won't let go
chicken in the breadpan picking out dough
axe in the hand but the neck don't know

hey ho
lord i've been a fool, done derry-oh
thought i had it all in sight
lonely days and lonely nights
lord i've been a fool, done-day done-doh

so they all rolled over and one fell out
dying in the dark but he won't let go
bleeding in a bedpan spitting up dough
cut away the head and the heart don't doubt
don't doubt

lord i've been a fool, done derry-oh
thought i had a song to sing
thought i held a precious thing
lord i've been a fool, done-day done-doh

hey ho
lord i've been a fool, done derry-oh
had the holy grail in sight
lonely days and lonely nights
lord i've been a fool, done-day done-doh

hey ho
lord i've been a fool, done derry-oh
thought i held a precious thing
thought i had a song to sing
lord i've been a fool, done-day done-doh
