    Lyrics

    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
