"fool around" as written by and Andrew Kenny....
Fool around
You fool around
Did an older girl get to school you now?

It's the rule around
You don't choose it now
You can turn around
And get turned around

There's a ring around
She don't keep around
She don't fool around
When she fools around

So he moves around
And gets schooled around
Cause she fools around
On a boy who never thought to fool around

Fool around
You fool around
Did a younger boy get to rule you now?

It's the rule around
You don't choose it now
You can turn around
And get turned around

There's a girl in town
And she's cooler now
So he's moving out
Out where it's cooler now

And he moves around
And gets schooled around
And he fools around
On a girl who never thought to fool around

    General Commentgreat song with a even better rhythm. i think its about two people (the girl older) who date and get married. the wife "fools around" and the guy leaves her.
    best analog set song ive heard

    General CommentI think it's talking about teenage promiscuity involving a girl who spreads her promiscuity like a disease to a younger boy and the chain continues as he does the same with another girl and on and on.

    This song is magnificient. Lyrically and aurally as well.

    General CommentDefinitely a married woman

    There's a ring around
    She don't keep around
    She don't fool around
    When she fools around

    I think "he gets schooled around" means she plays him. maybe he doesn't know what's going on? The "boy who never thought to fool around" means her husband was loyal.

    So he moves around
    And gets schooled around
    Cause she fools around
    On a boy who never thought to fool around

    I think the husband leaves the wife but then cheats on the next woman he was with

    There's a girl in town
    And she's cooler now
    So he's moving out
    Out where it's cooler now

    And he moves around
    And gets schooled around
    And he fools around
    On a girl who never thought to fool around
