Oh April (You Made A Fool Outta Me)

If you’re feeling cooped up are you a fox or a chicken?
Another ‘somebody-did-somebody-wrong’ song

Couldn’t pin you down till I was stuck like glue
Heading for a fall before summer was through
Didn’t hear the sirens when you came in view
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

With a pout and a wink and a raptors smile
On your smart phone waiting for a dumb reply
Call you Cleopatra, you’re the queen of denial
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

Take a look beneath the hood tell me what’s that ticking
If you’re feeling cooped up are you a fox or a chicken?
You’re gonna bust baby if you don’t start sticking
Do I make myself quite clear?

You broke me like a bank, broke me like a horse
Your speech is so smooth now you’re right on course
Tricked me twice, tricked me thrice with your excessive force
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

A penny for your thoughts if you count them cheaply
Pennies for my eyes when I was only sleeping
Penitence is something for the old and weak
That’s what you always said to me

Didn’t want a white knight at the end of the day
Used your dirty mouth to get clean away
I was a puppet on a string that was too afraid
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

Oh April, you made a fool outta me
Oh April, you made a fool outta me
