I hope you shine bright as a star Don’t listen to them say you wont go far And I hope you’ll grow out of the mould And stray a little further from the fold They’ll say it is all a waste of time They’ll try to cut you down to size Jealous of love you have to share, and they can’t compare We’ve got the time Who wants to be a fool in love like me? Who wants to live a life in fantasy? Well we’ve got love enough to share We’ve got time not to care So maybe we’ll fall and shed a tear Get hurt by something cruel I’m young and got the right to be a fool I hope you shine bright as a star Don’t let them try to tell you who you are And I hope you’ll stay over the moon When they tell you that your heart has loved to soon They’ll say it is all a waste of time They try to cut you down to size Jealous of love you have to share, and they can’t compare They don’t think its fare We’ve got the time Who wants to be a fool in love like me? Who wants to live a life in fantasy? Well we’ve got love enough to share We’ve got time not to care So maybe we’ll fall and shed a tear Get hurt by something cruel I’m young and got the right to be a fool So maybe we’ll fall and shed a tear Get hurt by something cruel I’m young and got the right to be a fool To be a fool To be a fool
