Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Romance is a game for fools, I used to say
A game I thought I'd never play
Romance is a game for fools, I said & grinned
Then you passed by and here am I throwing caution to the wind

Fools rush in
Where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you my love
My heart above my head

Though I see
There's danger there
If there's a chance for me
Then I don't care

Fools rush in
Where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know

When we met
I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
