It happened at a birthday celebration.
You said by all accounts I made a scene.
I told off-color jokes.
Offended several folks.
I guess, perhaps, I might see what you mean.
Now, if you were to take me to a funeral, I'd be the only fool there in a party hat.
I mean no disrespect.
I just think, 'What the heck?
I might just make a grievin' widow laugh.'

Your girlfriends say it all the time, but your mama says it too - "You married a fool."
You married a fool.
You married a fool, but I'm a fool for you.

I met you where you worked.
Down at the tavern, we sang karaoke songs until you closed.
I guess I drank too much, and maybe I lost touch.
I'm not sure why I took off all my clothes.
It's nothin' new.
Hell, you can ask my mother.
I was a joker and a class clown back in school.
And I take any gaffe just to make some people laugh.
And I don't care if I come off a fool.

Your girlfriends say it all the time, but your mama says it too - "You married a fool."
You married a fool.
You married a fool, but I'm a fool for you.

At night, we get in bed and we turn out the lights.
There's not a hint of irony.
There's not a joke in sight.
But in this great, big world of ours, you're the only one around who can see the real me through the makeup of this sad and wounded clown.

I like to think I'm like Kenny Rogers when I stay out late at night and play my songs.
But this song is no lady.
In fact, they're all quite shady.
I guess I only sing 'bout things gone wrong.
A friend asked if you were my inspiration.
You told her, "Have you heard this moron sing?
Even has a song that says that I lost my head when he gave me the ring.
What a god-awful thing to sing!"

Your girlfriends say it all the time, but your mama says it too.
Well, they can't see between the lines to the truth of me and you.
I guess I might seem asinine; so, hey, it might be true that you married a fool.
You married a fool.
You married a fool, but this fool ain't nothin' but a fool in love with you.
