Etta James – Fool That I Am lyrics

Fool that I am,
For falling in love with you.
And, fool that I am,
For thinking you loved me, too.
You took my heart
Then played the part of little coquette.
And, my dreams just disappeared

Like the smoke from a cigarette.
Fool that I am,
For hoping youd 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.
