"Fool Out of Me" as written by and Idina/davis Menzel....
Just when you think you are the shit
Well, you look down and your fly is unzipped
That's when you take a moment to say,
"Well, sometimes I'm so totally unhip."

Just when the great ones inspire you
To throw caution to the wind
That's when the mirror, mirror on the wall says,
"Babe, you better throw your towel in."

All that I don't know
Paralyzes me
But somehow I keep going on
Just settling for this mediocrity
And I wonder if God is trying to make a fool out of me

There are legends who die
And I've never even heard their songs
And there are heroes of a generation
Whose poetry is not on my shelf
And my soliloquies would make Shakespeare
Turn over in his grave
And voyagers would forbid me
To join in their crusade


I wish I could fight against Ali and win
I wish I could write with Joni Mitchell's pen
Sail the Atlantic on a paddle boat
I wish I could smile like Bobby de Niro
I wish that the lotto was the number of my telephone
I wish I could sing a duet with Bono
'Cause I don't want to sound like
Anyone else, you know

I just want to take you under my spell
Excuse me for saying
What I know down deep is my sin
But maybe I'll fool everybody into thinking
I know just what I am doing

    General CommentThis is such a great song... she must feel the way I do--so humbled in the presence and knowledge of such greatness--and yet. And yet she understands the value of the human mind as well as its irony and conceit. It's gorgeous. And it makes me feel like summer. :)
