1st Verse
First you say you want me, then you act like you don't even care
I keep on chasin' you, but I'm not gettin' nowhere
I'm sayin' all the right things, but you don't seem to hear
Then I try to get closer, but you don't seem to want me near
I try to get your attention, but you don't see
Did I forget to mention, you make a fool outa me
2nd Verse
You think that love is fascinatin', you should be participatin' with me
You keep a lookin' right past what's been right there for you to see
I may not drive a BMW, an Acura, or a Saab
Just my old Ford pickup, but it's paid for, and I've got a job
You think the grass is always greener and you just gotta see
What's on the other side, while you're makin' a fool outa me
3rd Verse
Round and round, up and down, and all about
That's the way you turn me when you turn my heart inside out
I try to straighten you out, but you keep on throwin' me curves
Then you act all innocent, baby, you've got your nerve
The writing's on the wall, I've been unable to see
I must be a fool, 'cause you make such a fool outa me
