Somebody’s Acting Like a Fool

Another blues track off the ‘Smalltown Blues’ album which harks back to my very brief encounter with John Mayall way back when. I’ve tried to capture the style of that time with this one.

We had a stupid quarrel
And I don’t know what to do
We had a stupid quarrel
Something dumb with me and you
We need to talk it over
Somebody’s acting like a fool

We’ve been acting really stupid
Can we work out what to do?
We’ve been acting really stupid
Is it me or is it you?
We need to find an answer
Somebody’s acting like a fool

Somebody’s acting like a fool
Somebody’s acting like a fool
Tho’ my recollection’s hazy
I think that we’ve been acting crazy
We need to sort it out now
Somebody’s acting like a fool

I shouldn’t yell or holler
Get hot underneath my collar
We should try to keep it calm
Talking never did no harm
Got to pull ourselves together
Somebody’s acting like a fool

Somebody’s acting like a fool
We treat each other cruel
Like some kids just outta school
Somebody’s acting like a fool
We got to get our act together
Somebody’s acting like a fool
