Etta James - Fool That I Am Lyrics




Fool that I am,
For falling in love with you.
And a, fool that I am,
For thinking you loved me, too.

You took my heart,
Then played the part of little coquette.
And, all my dreams just disappeared
Like the smoke from a cigarette.

Fool that I am,
For hoping you'd understand.
And thinking you
Would listen, too,
And, oh, the things I had planned.

But we couldn't see eye to eye
So, darling, darling, darling,
This is goodbye.
But I still care, but I still care,
And oh, fool that I am.
Oh, but I still care,
Fool that I am.

    This is one of the saddest and most beautiful songs ever written. You can feel the heartache she feels for loving someone that didn't love her back. You can sense the deception and the cracks she collected inside. This song is a letter from a shredded heart to itself...

    June Asiimwe

    Wow, you worded that feeling beautifully.

  37. Jenijo's Art-capades Online Gallery

    We have lost the age.. when raw talent.. untouched vocals.. have been in touch with the human spirit... Etta James epitomized the deep recesses of a woman's heart.

  38. Phillip Buscema

    Beautiful song sung by a wonderful singer. Kyle..one comment. The piano is playing more blues piano riffs than he is traditional jazz. Follow the bass line and it will make more sense of the timing.

  39. Sterling Ford

    Love your voice ETTA JAMES

  40. house md
