Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain
Chain of fools
For five long years
But I found out

I ain't nothin' but your fool
Oh you treated me cruel
Chain, chain, chain
Chain of fools
Every chain, has got a weak link
But I'll give you strength

My father said, "Come on home"
Oh but your lovin' is much too strong

(Chain, chain, chain)
(Chain, chain, chain)
(Chain, chain, chain)

The chain is gonna break
I'm gonna take all I can take, oh hey
Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
Chain of fools
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
