Find 'Em, Fool 'Em And Forget 'Em

Bobbie Gentry

Band/Artist: Bobbie Gentry

Album: Fancy

People, let me tell you all about my father
He was known as the meanest, baddest love maker in town
The man had a reputation for shuckin' and jivin' all the women
Breaking their hearts, lord, and leavin' them cryin'

He told me: "Hon, let me give you some advice
You ought to remember for the rest of your life"

He told me to find 'em, fool 'em, forget 'em
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Find 'em, fool 'em, forget 'em
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, but I didn't listen to what my father told me
And I went off and gave my heart to you, boy
And then you walked on me, you misused me
And finally you broke my poor heart in two

The way you treated me, lord, I wouldn't treat a dog
You didn't even show me any mercy at all
I wish I had found you, fooled you, forgot you
Like my daddy said

I wish I had found you, I could have fooled you and then forgot you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Daddy said: "Find 'em, fool 'em, forget 'em"
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Find 'em fool 'em forget 'em
Yeah, yeah, yeah
