Perry Blake's first solo release in 8 years, a welcome return to form


Take me dancing
I'm here all alone
take me swimming
I'll swim like a dog
take my honey
like all of the bees
bring me danger
I'll sink to my knees

'Cause I'm a fool for Love...

Oh my lordy
I've done it again
I just wanted
somebody to pretend
I never wanted
to be understood
so, take your chances
but, you'd better be good

'Cause I'm a fool for Love...

So, did you take your chances?
Did you take your medicine?
Did you take those chances,
'Cause you're a fool for Love?

Oh my lordy
I've done it again
I just wanted
somebody to pretend

'Cause I'm a fool for Love
