The Lyrics…

If you want to drive a big limousine

I’ll buy the longest one you’ve ever seen

I’ll buy you tall, tall trees

And all the waters and the seas

I’m a fool, fool, fool for you

If you want to own a great big mansion

Well I’ll give it my utmost attention

I’ll buy you tall, tall trees

And all the waters and the seas

I’m a fool, fool, fool for you

Well I’m a fool, a fool for you

It may take a while, but I’ll prove it’s true

Well if it’s lovin’ you want, then I’ve got it

If it’s money you want, then I’ll get it

I’ll buy you tall, tall trees

And all the waters and the seas

I’m a fool, fool, fool for you (yahoo)

If you want to take a trip across the ocean

I’ll travel anywhere you take a notion

I’ll buy you tall, tall trees

And all the waters and the seas

I’m a fool, fool, fool for you

And if you want to own a great big mansion

Well I’ll give it my utmost attention

I’ll buy you tall, tall trees

And all the waters and the seas

I’m a fool, fool, fool for you
