Leon Russell Fool’s Paradise

I often think off the life I’ve led

And oh, it’s a wonder I ain’t dead

Drinking and gambling, staying out all night

Living in a fool’s paradise

My mama told me, papa told me too

Said my child, it’ll all catch up with you

Drinking and gambling, staying out all night

You living in a fool’s paradise

Though I’ve learned my lesson

All of fool that came my way

I’ve learned things in this old world

I remember tell me time there

My papa told me, my mother said it right

She said my child, you’re ruining your life

Just drinking and gambling, staying out all night

You living in a fool’s paradise

Just drinking and gambling, staying out all night

You living in a fool’s paradise

You living in a fool’s paradise
