  • Lyrics
  • Have you ever been left by a lover and made to look like "a fool all over town"? Then this song is for you! The Mavericks' front man, Raul Malo, co-wrote this with the country songwriter, Al Anderson. In our interview with Anderson, he told us that he thought this song was "dumb" at first: "I thought that was a dumb song. Like I was doing, 'What the hell is this?' Then I heard the record on the radio, and it was the best - that's my favorite record of all time." Anderson added he and Malo shared a strong song writing partnership: "I'm able to zone in on Raul when it comes to songs. I really enjoy writing with him."
  • Anderson told us that the legendary Country musician, Buck Owens, influenced this song.
  • This features the Grammy Award-winning Tejano music accordionist, Flaco Jiménez.
  • Music for All Occasions was The Mavericks' fourth studio album. The album features the Country musician, Trisha Yearwood, who duets with the band on a cover of the Frank and Nancy Sinatra song, "Somethin' Stupid."
