The Bigger The Fool (The Harder The Fall)

by Larry Cordle, Jim Rushing

from the album All I Need To Know


Lyrics

Her long legs looked like trouble
As she sashayed through the door
And my mind flashed a warning sign
That I chose to ignore
For the prize I thought I could win
The risk seemed mighty small
The bigger the fool the harder the fall

Fell in love in the heat of passion
Oh but passion has its price
Under all that beauty
Beat a heart that was made of ice
God knows as far as I could see she didn’t have a flaw
But the bigger the fool the harder the fall

I said the warmer the kiss
The softer the skin
The sweeter the love
The more bitter the end
Well one lesson I’ve learned that applies to all
The bigger the fool the harder the fall

One day she was loving me
The next day she was gone
And I became another verse
To a lonesome heartbreak song
Now that I’ve learned to face the truth
The words stick in my craw
Well, the bigger the fool the harder the fall

I said the warmer the kiss
The softer the skin
The sweeter the love
The more bitter the end
Well, one lesson I’ve learned that applies to all
The bigger the fool the harder the fall
The bigger the fool the harder the fall
