King Of Fools - Gene Vincent

King Of Fools

Gene Vincent

(Bob Barratt, CAPITOL 15264, 1962)

(Here comes the king of fools, here comes the king of fools)
Make way, make way I say (here comes the king of fools)
Well, today is coronation day (here comes the king of fools)
I'm gonna wear my heartbreak for a crown
And tears instead of jewels
'Cause I'm his majesty, the king of fools
(He's the king of fools)

Raise a cheer as he passes by (here comes the king of fools)
Drink a toast to this lonely guy (here comes the king of fools)
I'm gonna wear my heartbreak for a crown
And tears instead of jewels
'Cause I'm his majesty, the king of fools
(He's the king of fools)

How can you fall, oh slap bang out of love
Don't ask me, you should know, you found it easy enough
Make way, make way I say (here comes the king of fools)
Well, today is coronation day (here comes the king of fools)
I'm going to wear my heartbreak for a crown
And tears instead of jewels
'Cause I'm his majesty, the king of fools
(He's the king of fools)

How can you fall, oh slap bang out of love
Don't ask me, you should know, you found it easy enough
Make way, make way I say (here comes the king of fools)
Well, today is coronation day (here comes the king of fools)
I'm going to wear my heartbreak for a crown
And tears instead of jewels
'Cause I'm his majesty, the king of fools
(King of fools, king of fools)
