"Statue of a Fool" as written by and David / Ruffin....
Somewhere there should be, for all the world to see
A statue of a fool made of stone
An image of a man who let love slip through his hand
And then let him stand there all alone

So, build a statue and, oh, build it high
So the world can see
And inscribe, 'The World's Greatest Fool'
And name it after me

Mmm, and there on his face, a gold tear should be placed
To honor every tear he shed
And I think it would show and everyone would know
Concealed inside is a broken heart

So, build a statue and, oh, build it high
So the world can see
And inscribe, 'The World's Greatest Fool'
And name it after me

So, build a statue and, oh, build it high
So that all can see
And inscribe, 'The World's Greatest Fool'
And name it after me, yeah, yeah
And name it after me
