Night Beat

Fool's Paradise

by Sam Cooke

on The Man Who Invented Soul (2000), Night Beat (1963), The Rhythm And The Blues (1995)

I often think off the live I've led
And oh, it's a wonder, I ain't dead
Drinking and gambling, staying out all night
Living is a fool's paradise
My mother told me and my father told me too
Said my child, it's all catch up with you
Drinking and gambling, staying out all night
Living in a fool's paradise
Though I've learned my lesson
Like all fools I've met
Oh, I've learned things in this life
That I haven't forgotten yet
My father told me, my mother said it right
Said my son, you're ruining your life
Drinking and gambling, staying out all night
Living in a fool's paradise
