I Got Fooled Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Walkin' down the street this mornin'
Full of my good gin
A lady was in the doorway she said
"Mister, won't you come on in?"
Verse 2
She wanted me to clean her house
Move her furniture around
Said she would bake a jelly roll
And it would be nice and brown
Verse 3
But I got fooled
Yes, I got fooled
Well, don't you know I got fooled
She was jivin' me all the time
Verse 4
She said, "I own this apartment
And I got a big blue Buick Sedan
All that I need
Is just a handy man"
Verse 5
You know that she promised me
When the work was through
That I could have my way
And do anything I wanted to
Verse 6
But I got fooled, sonny
Yes, I got fooled, buddy
Don't you know I got fooled
She was jivin' me all the time
Verse 7
I hear you, boy
Verse 8
But I went on and cleaned her house
From the front to the back
Cleaned out every corner
I didn't even miss a crack, uh huh
Verse 9
She promised me a kiss
And a great big hug
Sweep down my stairs now
And beat my bedroom rug
Verse 10
But I got fooled, sonny, yes, you did, boy
Yes, I got fooled, buddy
Don't you know I got fooled
She was jivin' me all the time
Verse 11
In the evenin' about five o'clock
I said, "House lady, I'm through
Come on and tell me now exactly
What in the world are we gonna do?"
Verse 12
She said, "We gonna dance all night long
And have plenty of good gin"
Soon as she spoke those words
You know her husband come walkin' in
Verse 13
I got fooled, sonny, yes, you did, boy
I got fooled, buddy
Don't you know I got fooled
She was jivin' me all the time
Verse 14
Oh, that's a shame for you to wait like that
And get fooled in the end
Verse 15
