Well if I live to be a hundred, I won't forget the day
I broke the heart you gave me and let you walk away
That's when they hung my name in the fool's hall of fame

Ah baby since we've been apart, I can't console my heart
It cries and cries all night long
Can't I ever make you see this change you've made in me
Just give me a chance to tell you I was wrong

Yes they say that you'll forgive me and end this misery
you know I'll keep on a beggin' till you come back to me
don't leave me here in chains in the fool's hall of fame

Ah baby since we've been apart I can't console my heart
it cries and cries all night long
Baby can't you ever see the change you've made in me
just give me a chance to tell you I was wrong

Yes they say that you'll forgive me and end this misery
You know I'll keep on beggin' till you come back to me
don't leave me here in chains in the fool's hall of fame
don't leave me here in chains in the fool's hall of fame

Yes they say that you'll forgive me and end this misery
You know I'll keep on beggin' till you come back to me
don't leave me here in chains in the fool's hall of fame
don't leave me here in chains in the fool's hall of fame
