Lyrics

Georgie was in prison when he got the word.

His wife she had left him, threw him another curve.

So he took off his shirt and tied it to the light.

Stuck his neck through it and then said "Goodnight."

 

And OH, WHAT A FOOL I'VE BEEN.

Thought she was my only friend.

Thought she'd stick to me like glue to the end.

OH, WHAT A FOOL I'VE BEEN.

 

Suzie was lyin' on her bed in the bedroom.

A letter near by its words full of gloom.

An empty pill bottle lies on the floor.

Yes, jilted, forsaken, she couldn't take it no more.

 

She cried OH, WHAT A FOOL I'VE BEEN.

Thought he was my only friend.

Thought he'd stick to me like glue to the end.

OH, WHAT A FOOL I'VE BEEN.

 

Now in everyone's life there comes a time when they must.

Forsake the loved one they thought they could trust.

But listen here folks, don't do yourselves in.

Just grab you a beer . . . and join in . . . Singin' . . .

 

OH, WHAT A FOOL I'VE BEEN.

Thought she was my only friend.

Thought she'd stick to me like glue to the end.

OH, WHAT A FOOL I'VE BEEN.
