Lyric "There's No Fool Like A Young Fool"

There's no fool like a young fool with wild and careless ways
Who forgets about tomorrow and lives just for today
If she could only realize the sorrow that's in store
She'd try behaving on for sights and honky tonk no more
It breaks my heart to see her drinking there with tavern lights a shining in her hair
She won't seem sweet sixteen tomorrow as today
There's no fool like a young fool who throws her life away

Now the dim lights and the drinking seems like fun I know
But she'll find out one morning that you reap just what you sowed
The sad part is she'll be alone once she starts to fall
There's no fool like a young fool who thinks she knows it all
It breaks my heart...

Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music. His biggest career hit song, "Walking the Floor Over You" (1941), marked the rise of the honky tonk style of music. In 1948, he was the first singer to record a hit version of "Blue Christmas", a song more commonly associated with Elvis Presley and his mid-1950s version.
