Well now you've all been asked foolish questions and I think you all know,
that your bound to run into them most, most anywhere you go.
And you all know the story about the man you meet on the way.
You say to him, Hey hows Trix and you'll listen to him while he say.
He's just been to the funeral of poor old uncle Ned.
E A (NC)
And the next question he's gonna ask is, Is Ned dead?
Foolish Question, you might as well reply.
No Ned thought he'd have a funeral and later on some time he die.
You know he is so oringinal that he wanted it that way.
Foolish questions, you'll hear em ev'ry day.
Then there's the woman that always gives your phone a ring.
E A (hold A only for this line.)
She'll talk for 2 hours about anything especially her bad kin folk goin ruinin everything.
D E A (NC)
You sit there half asleep, brewin, stewin, she says finally, Hey whatcha doin?
Foolish Question, you oughta tell her that you're gone.
Just about an hour ago I thought I heard the phone.
It couldn't have been you though cause I've been asleep, why don't you call me sometime.
Silly questions get a silly answer all the time.
Then you just get outta the hospital after about a three month stay.
Had every bone in you broken, and you're tryin to make your way.
An old friend steps right up to you and says Hey how's Trix?
You've been in the hospital for three long months and he says, Hey you been sick?
Foolish question, nah I like my meals in bed.
Cost ain't a lot and I'm curin up purty good now.
Why don't you go break your leg, that attraction there is fine.
Foolish questions get a silly answer all the time.
Well you step into an elevator and you open up the door.
You walk right into the shaft and fall down forty floors.
And when you hit the bottom and you're layin there in the dirt.
The first person that comes along gonna say, Hey you hurt?
Foolish questions, your dyin words are no.
I was kinda in a hurry, well the elevator's too slow.
I find a save a lot of time, comin down that way.
Foolish questions, yea you'll hear em everyday.
