The Rules Of The Road

This song is by Shirley Horn and appears on the album You're My Thrill (2001).

So these are the ropes
The tricks of the trade
The rules of the road
You're one of the dopes
For whom they were made
The rules of the road

You follow that kiss
And recklessly miss
A bend of the road
Then suddenly this
The end of the road

So love is a hoax
A glittering string
Of little white lies
But these are the jokes
And what if they bring
The tears to your eyes

Well love often shows a funny return
The brighter it glows
The longer you burn
And Lord only knows
Love has little concern
For the fools of the road

That's how it goes
You live and you learn
The rules of the road

Well love often shows a funny return
The brighter it glows
The longer you burn
And Lord only knows
Love has little concern
For the fools of the road

That's how it goes
You live and you learn
The rules of the road
The rules of the road
