    E        G     A
She wasn't a fool
                D    Dsus4  D
That glittering girl
    E            G        A
She followed the rules
                D     Dsus4  D
That shimmering pearl

         G                        G
Said the rules mama preaches
                    D        Dsus4  D
Don't die when they break
    G                  
The things mama teaches
               B
You just gotta shake

        E        G     A
But she wasn't a fool
                 D
That slender lovely girl
    E            G     A
She followed her rules
               B
And made money bigger

    G        Bb    C
She wasn't a fool
                   F   Fsus4  F
That shining young woman
    G            Bb   C
She followed her rules
                  D
She is crying for no man

Said the rules mama teaches
Don't die when they're broken
She explodes into peaches
And cries when I've spoken

She wasn't a fool
That goddess of hell
There are no mother's rules
She makes them herself

B...

If I was down upon my knees
To beg her surrender up to me

[solo; verse pattern]

Something inside her
Told he she shouldn't
Tried and alight her
But the girl wouldn't

She wasn't a fool
But love flowed from her face
She's not scared of me
She's afraid of disgrace

    G       Bb      C
She wasn't a fool
                    F       Fsus4  F
That female for our world
    G            Bb      C
She followed her rules
                F        C
That glittering girl
                F        C
That glittering girl
                F        C
That glittering girl
                D
That glittering girl
