My baby came home last night
And she looked at me real cool
She said, "Albert, you ain't nothin' but a overgrown fool,
I'm gonna leave you, gonna leave you behind"
I said, " Baby I'm gonna tell you, that a good fool is hard to find"

Now, baby if you leave me, it would hurt me to my soul
I just can't understand why baby, any woman could be so cold
But a good fool, a good fool, is hard to find
Take a lesson from me baby, a good fool is hard to find

The last time you left me, I didn't have much to lose
You left me with nothin' woman, but a pair of thin-sole shoe
But a good fool, a good fool is hard to find
Take a lesson from me baby, a good fool is hard to find

Now listen to me baby, I think you should be told
When they made yo' daddy, somebody went an' broke the mold
A good fool, a good fool is hard to find
You take the lesson from me woman, a good fool is hard to find
