Buck Owens – Foolin’ Around Lyrics

I know that you’ve been foolin’ around on me right from the start
So I’ll take back my ring and I’ll take back my heart
And when you’re tired of foolin’ around with two or three
Come on home and fool around with me
I wasn’t foolin’ around the day I said I do
But many a night I wished that I had been a-foolin’ too
I know it’s foolish taking all this misery
But when it’s you, a fool I’ll always be
I know that you’ve been foolin’ around on me right from the start
So I’ll take back my ring and I’ll take back my heart
And when you’re tired of foolin’ around with two or three
Come on home and fool around with me
So honey fool around, you know right where I’m at
Don’t worry if I’m lonesome cause I’m used to that
And when you’re tired of foolin’ around with two or three
Then come on home and fool around with me
I know that you’ve been foolin’ around on me right from the start
So I’ll take back my ring and I’ll take back my heart
And when you’re tired of foolin’ around with two or three
Come on home and fool around with me
