Ray Charles - A Fool For You Lyrics




I know you told me
Such a long time ago
That you didn't want me
You didn't love me no more
I want to know
Oh, what makes me be
Do you believe me child
A fool for you
Ohoh, no, I'm a fool for you
I know you told me
You didn't want me 'round
And I know
You got a man way 'cross town
So I know it's something
Oh, what makes me be
Do you believe me child
I'm a fool for you
Ohoh, no, I'm a fool for you
Did ya ever wake up in the morning
Just about the break of day
Reach over and feel the pillow
Where your baby used to lay
Then you put on your crying
Like you never cried before
Oh lord
Yeah you even cry so loud,
You give the blues to your neighbor next door
Ever since you were five years old
I been a fool for you, little girl
Way down in my soul
I'm a little fool for ya
So I know it's something
Oh, oh, Lord
I'm a fool for you

THE JACKSON FIVE SANG AND OWED IT AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF 10. goes to show you mike wasnt just a child singer hr was an ELITE. SOUL SINGER AMONGST other great doul singer coverimg this song not only was he able to compete with the best in covering once again in my humble opinion even those who song before or after they know he killed all of them on it and they are great singers can you say child prodigy
