Call Me a Fool

by Simon Houbsta

/

about

I wrote a happy rhythm guitar lick and I wanted to write some cool lyrics for it. Then I got carried away with a few silly visual ideas and it became a bit of a song that represents losing your mind a bit, doing strange things, and yet being quite happy about it. Sometimes lyrics don't have to make sense as such.

This is a remaster from an analogue cassette tape master.

lyrics

Playing golf left handed in the pouring rain
Playing snooker underwater with a walking cane
Playing bagpipes badly

Driving on the wrong side you can't look back
Cycling down the motorway with your pac-a-mac
Playing the fool gladly

Call me a fool 'cause I need
To recapture what I had
Call me a fool 'cause I left you
But you drove me mad

Getting old whilst still feeling younger
Never got to be a champion bungee jumper
Playing husband sadly, madly, gladly

Call me a fool 'cause I need
To recapture what I had
Call me a fool 'cause I left you
But you drove me mad
