Nobody's Fool

Story Behind The Song

We did a record of Louisiana-style music, most of which was lyrically about obsession and addiction. Chainsaw's mother was very important in his life, and had known Fats Domino in New Orleans, so we did a song that paid some tribute to her and to Fats, w

Lyrics

NOBODY'S FOOL

When I was young
I had no problems
Or so it seemed to me

Whenever things got complicated
I'd find a way to
Make it easy

Cuz I ain't nobody's fool
Mama raised me right
In a world that's cruel
My mama taught me to fight

As I got older
I was reckless
Hurt the people close to me
I never did the things that mattered
My life was just one big party

Cuz I was nobody's fool
Mama raised me right
I never did tomorrow
What I could do tonight

Now I'm a man
And I'm no angel
But I get stronger every day
And I see the consequences
Of a youth spent foolishly

Cuz I ain't nobody's fool
Mama raised me right
My eyes were opened for me
I finally saw the light
