The page contains the lyrics of the song "To Sweep Away a Fool" by Eleanor McEvoy.

Lyrics

You don’t have to be clever
You don’t need a degree
To take a wounded woman
And bring her to her knees
And you won’t need an army
It’s not a lot to do
It doesn’t take a genius
To sweep away a fool
To sweep away a fool
It wouldn’t take the finest
Minds in MIT
The find a lonely woman
And sweep her off her feet
All it takes is lying
And leaving when you’re through
It doesn’t take a genius
To sweep away a fool
To sweep away a fool
When a woman’s standing strong
You’ll never knock her down
All the forces of the law
Couldn’t make her fall
When a woman’s standing proud
She’ll stand out of their crowd
And she would rise above it all
When a woman’s standing tall
Fresh October morning
I met him on the bus
I didn’t take much notice
When he smiled at me at first
Wasn’t 'til December
He broke my heart in two
It didn’t take a genius
To sweep away a fool
To sweep away this fool
