"A Fool There Was" (karaoke)

"A Fool There Was" (sheet music)


A fool there was and he had no job

Even as you and I

And he didn't want to steal or rob

Even as you and I

And so each day he thinner grew

He tightened his belt a notch or two

'Til it nearly cut him right in two

Even as you and I

 

He voted for what he thought was change

Even as you and I

When nothing did he thought it strange

Even as you and I

But though the promises lost their shine

He couldn't help thinking it oh so kind

They'd saved him a place in the old soupline

Even as you and I

 

He watched depression growing worse

Even as you and I

As bankers looted the public purse

Even as you and I

They told him this was a country grand

With plenty of everything in the land

So he starved to death with a flag in his hand

Even as you and I
