"I'll Play The Fool" is a song written by August Darnell & Stony Browder Jr.

Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band was a big band and swing influenced disco band, formed in the Bronx, New York. They are best known for their #1 US dance hit, "Cherchez La Femme"/C'est si bon, from their self-titled debut album.

The band released three albums between 1976 and 1979. A smaller lineup known as Dr Buzzard's Savannah Band (omitting the word "original") also released a fourth album in 1984. They were frequent performers at Studio 54. Bassist Thomas August Darnell Browder and vibraphonist Andy Hernandez (Coati Mundi), went on to form Kid Creole and the Coconuts and Elbow Bones and the Racketeers. Lead singer Cory Daye also pursued a successful solo career.

I'll play the fool for you, oh girl
If that will get me over
And I'm gonna go to school again, boy, for you
Just to get my equivalency diploma

There's nothin' honey, that I won't do
When I meet a guy lovely as you
Ain't it funny what a little love can do
(Ain't it kinda funny)
Better than poison, so much stronger than glue

I'll be a joker for you, oh girl
Make you smile when you're feelin' blue
I'll grow a tail or two for you
Spend the rest of my days locked up in the zoo

'Cause there ain't nothin' doubtful daddy, that I won't do
When I meet a guy lovely as you
Ain't it
(Ain't it kinda funny)
So much better than poison, stronger than glue, hey

When your body's close to mine, my baby, ooh
I get a feelin' that's so divine, ooh
Say, blows my mind

Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)

Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)

I'll play the fool for you, oh, girl
Buy you things that I cannot afford
Now that ya be a two for me, honey, honey, hey
Fix all the phones and lock all the doors

There ain't nothin' baby, that I won't ever do
When I meet a guy who is lovely as you
Ain't it funny, babe, what a little love can do
(Ain't it kinda funny)
It is better than that poison, it's so stronger, stronger than glue

My love, ain't it, ain't it, ain't it kinda, ain't it kinda funny?
When I need to talk with [Incomprehensible] you
No baby, baby, can't ya see? I need you to love me
And always be by my side

(Ain't it kinda loving you)
Love me, baby
Oh baby, oh baby
(Ain't it kinda loving you)
Oh baby, my baby, yeah
(Ain't it kinda loving you)
