fool for two

I've posted the text on several 'native' boards to check out if it will work as I see it. Of course, I know that the lines "fool for one, fool for two" don't make much sense per se, but I'm curious how they will be conceived.

fool for one
fool for two
fool enough for me and you
fool for one
fool for two
why are you doing what you do

you've laid all our secrets bare
we're the topic of the day
just go to the market square
to listen what the people say

our weaknesses, our private life,
all our foibles, all our faults
public where the gossip's rife
not a chance to call a halt

fool for one
fool for two
fool enough for me and you
fool for one
fool for two
why are you doing what you do

our kids scorn of the class
while we're the scorn of our town
hear them snicker where we pass
did you intend to play their clown?

fool for one
fool for two
fool enough for me and you
fool for one
fool for two
make fools of our children, too

when I fell in love with you
I found you open-hearted and outspoken
I'd no idea there'd be a risk
of a family life out in the open

fool for one
fool for two
fool enough for me and you
fool for one
fool for two
make fools of our children, too
