the Eagles - Certain Kind of Fool Lyrics

Certain Kind of Fool
written: R. Meisner, D. Henley, and G. Frey
lead vocals: R. Meisner

He was a poor boy
Raised in a small family
He kind of had a craving
For something no one else could see
They said that he was crazy
The kind that no lady should meet
He ran off to the city
And wandered around in the street

He wants to dance, oh yeah,
He wants to sing, oh yeah,
He wants to see the lights a-flashin’
And listen to the thunder ring

He saw it in a window
The mark of a new kind of man
He kinda liked the feeling
So shiny and smooth in his hand
He took it to the country
And practiced for days without rest
And then one day he felt it
He knew he could stand with the best

They got respect, oh yeah,
He wants the same, oh yeah,
And it’s a certain kind of fool
That likes to hear the sound of his own name

A poster on a storefront
The picture of the wanted man
He had a reputation
Spreading like fire through the land
It wasn’t for the money
At least it didn’t start that way
It wasn’t for the runnin’
But now he’s runnin’ every day
