The Rules of the Road

Written by: Cy Coleman / Carolyn Leigh

 

So these are the ropes
The tricks of the trade
The rules of the road
Youíre one of the dopes
For whom they were made
The rules of the road

You follow that kiss
And recklessly miss
A bend in the road
Then suddenly itís
The end of the road

So love is a hoax
A glittering string
Of little white lies
But these are the jokes
And what if they bring
The tears to your eyes

Well love often shows
A funny return
The brighter it glows
The longer youíll burn
And lord only knows
Love has little concern
For the fools of the road

But thatís how it goes
You live and you learn
The rules of the road

It hurts heaven knows
You burn til you learn
The rules of the road

Mmm, thatís how it goes
You live and you learn
The rules of the road
