For The Souls That Laugh At Life Through the Stars


I often think of the live 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 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 forgotton 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
Oh yeah, living in a fool's paradise
