Thread Name: Origins: Foolish Questions (W Lee/A B Sloane)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Foolish Questions
The Wood's Tea Co. made up a few of their own verses for live shows where the audience would ask the question.

Now the phone rings in the morning it's about 5:25
You're sleeping awfully soundly you're just barely alive
As you stagger to the telephone you break a coffee cup
And the voice on the other end will ask, "Did I wake you up?"
Foolish questions, here's what's said by you
Hell no, I get up every mornin 'bout twenty after two
That's when I'm gonna call you tomorrow
Foolish questions, y'know that's what I would do.

We were playin' at an alehouse, it was a lowdown kind of place
When some biker staggers to the stage and he looks me in the face
And though I'm playin' loudly with my guitar in my hand
This guy shouts, "Hey buddy, are you in the band?
Foolish questions, I looked at him and grinned
No, I'm the bouncer. How did you get in?
You're gonna have to leave now, he swung at me, I ducked
Foolish answers, y'know, that one really was dumb.
