fool that i am lyrics – etta james

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.
