"You Were The Fool" as written by and Michael Melchiondo....
Slow four...one two three four...

Bless the father bless the son
Cross your heart 'cause you're the one
Collectin' moon-beams in the mornin'
Curvy sticks and wooden poles
Assistin' you in pluggin' holes
Plug them holes till you see straight through to the mind's eye

Think about it turn around
And go back to the quiet sound
Of Jim and Dan prancin' round the pool
You were the fool, and I feel sorry for you
You were the fool, but there's something you can do

You can wash your arm in a pool of mud
You can chop a tree prevent a flood
You can speak with a turtle just by flippin' him around
You can build a boat sail the sea
You can buy a moat forge a key
Initiate the sequence create catastrophe

Think about it turn around
And go back to the quiet sound
Of Jim and Dan prancin' round the pool
You were the fool, and I feel sorry for you
You were the fool, but there's something you can do

Bless the father bless the son
Cross your heart 'cause you're the one
Collectin' moon-beams in the mornin'
Curvy sticks and wooden poles
Assistin' you in pluggin' holes
Plug them holes till you see straight through to the mind's eye

Think about it turn around
And go back to the quiet sound
Of Jim and Dan prancin' round the pool
You were the fool, and I feel sorry for you
You were the fool, but there's something you can do
You were the fool

    General CommentThe turtle line is quite possibly the best song lyric ever conceived. Love this song.

    Song MeaningHe's actually talking about a person who tried to destroy the world with the key to the universe that the person had created. In the end, he went back to his normal life and later on he figured out it was a foolish thing that he tried to do, ergo he was the fool.
