lyrics

I went searching for you all around the town
I found you with him and I felt just like a clown
That's what I was, yes, that's what I was

When I saw you I tried to play it cool
But when he kissed you I felt just like the fool
That's what I was, yes, that's what I was
You made me feel just like a fool because
That's what I was

I should have seen it coming long, long ago
I had suspicion but I didn't want to know
Now I found the reason why you're out all night
It's 'cause you're doing me wrong
And you ain't got the right

My friends, they tried to warn me 'bout your wicked ways
But I just turned away like I was in a daze
Because I was, yes, that's what I was
I let you treat me like a fool because
That's what I was

I should have seen it coming long, long ago
I had suspicion but I didn't want to know
Now I found the reason why you're out all night
It's 'cause you're doing me wrong
And you ain't got the right

When you cheated I tried to play it cool
But when you left me I felt just like the fool
I knew I was, yes, that's what I was
You made me look just like a fool because
That's what I was

You left me for another fool because
That's what I was
