Sammy Davis Jr. – What Kind Of Fool Am I lyrics

What kind of fool am I
Who never fell in love?
It seems that I'm the only one
That I have been thinking of

What kind of man is this?
An empty shell
A lonely cell in which
An empty heart must dwell

What kind of lips are these
That lied with every kiss?
That whispered empty words of love
That left me alone like this

Why can't I fall in love
Like any other man?
And maybe then I'll know what kind of fool I am

(Instrumental Break)

What kind of clown am I?
What do I know of life?
Why can't I cast away this mask of play
And live my life?

Why can't I fall in love
Like any other man?
And maybe then I'll know what kind of fool I am

    The lyricist used the words "empty" and 'that' too much. For example "What kind of man is this? An empty shell A lonely cell in which An empty heart must dwell..." How about the expression "A hollow heart" instead? Second example "What kind of lips are these That lied with every kiss? That whispered empty words of love That left me alone like this..." How about "They whispered careless words of love Leaving me alone like this... "You asked "Know what this song is about?" Yes. I must say I adore Sammie's rendition of this song. He was one of the greatest vocalists of all time. The melody is magnificent.
