Lyrics

When you hit your stride on a Monday night
At a half-empty bar downtown
Having nowhere to hide and nothing to lose
Sure helps keep your feet on the ground

Ooo, make a fool out of me
That’s what I live for, that’s what I need
A man that dies laughing is a wise man indeed
So won’t you please make a fool out of me

I’d come straight out of nowhere to the Hollywood Hills
And surely there was no guarantee
That my slight of hand, so carefully planned
Would turn the world’s eyes upon me

Ooo, make a fool out of me
That’s what I live for, that’s what I need
A man that dies laughing is a wise man indeed
So won’t you please make a fool out of me

There was one little voice at the edge of my mind
Asking when I might get a real job
And another much louder dead-center in my heart
That pushed me on from town to town

Ooo, make a fool out of me
That’s what I live for, that’s what I need
A man that dies laughing is a wise man indeed
So won’t you please make a fool out of me

I’ve heard it said that your fate is revealed
Slowly as you go along
But a magic man’s glove if it’s thrown hard enough
Will take on the wings of a dove

Ooo, make a fool out of me
That’s what I live for, that’s what I need
A man that dies laughing is a wise man indeed
So won’t you please make a fool out of me
