Baby, I’m a Fool (Lyrics)
How was I to know that this was always only just a little game to you?
All the time I felt you gave your heart I thought that I
would do the same for you,
Tell the truth I think I should have seen it coming from a mile away,
When the words you say are,
“Baby I’m a fool who thinks it’s cool to fall in love”
If I gave a thought to fascination I would know it wasn’t right to care,
Logic doesn’t seem to mind that I am fascinated by a love affair,
Still my heart would benefit from a little tenderness
from time to time, but never mind,
‘Cause Baby I’m a fool who thinks it’s cool to fall in love. Ohhhh Mmmmm. Ohhhh Mmmmm
Baby I should hold on just a moment and be sure it’s not for vanity,
Look me in the eye and tell me love is never based upon insanity, yeah.
Even when my heart is beating, hurry up the moment’s fleeting,
Kiss me now,
Don’t ask me how,
‘Cause baby I’m a fool who thinks it’s cool to fall,
Baby I’m a fool who thinks it’s cool to fall,
And I would never tell if you became a fool and fell in Love with you.
John Caras: Great job. Loved it
Michael Kellett ♥ ♥ ♥

We are judged not only by how we begin relationships, but how we exit them. I am no stranger to passion, love and heartbreak but when I look back on my past relationships I value the perspective that it gives me. If you don’t like what you see, it’s never to late to say your sorry and change your future. The fate of your character depends on it. Xoxo, Jax
There is something about this song that just relaxes me. I don’t know if it’s the melody or the lyrics but since I first heard it in 1999, I had always intended on recording it. The song was written by singer/songwriter Jesse Harris & the Ferdinandos (Tony Scherr, Tim Luntzel, and Kenny Wollesen). They have 3 terrific albums on Verve Records. When I was asked to do some recordings for a new web site launching next year, I was really glad that it fit in with the project. This new venture has me singing songs originating as far back as the 30’s onto today. I adore every song we chose and hope that you’ll enjoy my versions as well. Thanks for watching :)

Love that song too. It makes it all right to be who you are, all your hopes and dreams and fears and failures, along with the secrets that you keep, and the only excuse you need to tell yourself or anybody else is “Don’t Know Why”, but one thing is for sure, my true destiny with definitely reveal itself. And you do that song so perfectly, and you look so pretty. WOW, you should do this more!!
