Father John Misty

"Time Makes Fools of Us All"

[Verse 1]
Our naked bodies go on trial
Just for laughing at the joke
Just for saying [?] bargain
What any salesgirl already knows
Most of us old men die in the firing line
Just waiting for our number to be called

[Refrain]
I guess time just makes fools of us all
Oh, I guess time just makes fools of us all

[Verse 2]
The Memphis king regales his stepsons
When he's loaded as a gun
Says, "A real man is like a country
You need a map to find your one"
Now why do you suppose you must approach the throne
With its back up against the wall?

[Refrain]
I guess time just makes fools of us all
Oh, Lord, I guess time just makes fools of us all

[Bridge]
My drink is watered down
My champion's on his knees
He lost a rematch, he lost a comeback
He lost for charity
But that's the job
It's what gets the asses in the hall
Watching time just make fools of us all

[Harmonica Solo]

[Verse 3]
The groom is a liar
And the bride is a shill
The priest says, "If these two don't make it
Who among us ever will?"
Don't ask the love you dare for a prediction
Wherein the lovers of tomorrow are involved

[Refrain]
I guess time just makes fools of us all
Oh, Lord, I guess time just makes fools of us all

[Outro]
I guess time just makes fools of us all
Oh, I guess time just makes fools of us all
