Nat King Cole – The Rules Of The Road Lyrics

(cy coleman, carolyn leigh)

So these are the ropes,

The tricks of the trade,

The rules of the road.

You’re one of the dopes

For whom they were made,

The rules of the road.

You follow that kiss and recklessly miss

A bend of the road,

Then suddenly this–

The end of the road.

So love is a hoax,

A glittering stream

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 you burn.

And lord only knows

Love has little concern for the fools of the road.

But that’s how it goes,

You live and you learn,

The rules of the road.

But that’s how it goes,

You live and you learn,

The rules of the road.

And everyone knows that that’s how it goes,

The rules of the road.
