Lyrics

At last I wake up to see what you've done
So what can I do but pack up and run
Now I know the rules
Go get yourself another fool

You say that you love me
I'm yours to command
But your kind of lovin'
My heart couldn't stand
You use me for a tool
Go get yourself another fool

And now, now that we're through
You say you meant to be true
But deep in your heart you know
That our love could never grow

I tried to believe you
That we'd never part
But your kind of lovin'
Just broke my poor heart
Now I know the rules
Go get yourself another fool

SOLO

And now, now that we're through
You say you meant to be true
But deep in your heart you know
That our love could never grow

Well I tried to believe you
That we'd never part
Your kind of lovin'
Just broke my poor heart
But I know the rules
Go get yourself another fool

Yeah you better get yourself
Get yourself
Better get yourself another fool
Go ahead and get yourself
Get yourself
Get yourself another fool
