  • I count the falling tears
    They fall before my eyes
    Seems like a thousand years
    Since we broke the ties
    I call you on the phone
    But never get a rise
    So sit there all alone
    It's time you realize

    I'm not your fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    I'm no fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    Never again, no, no

    You take your road, i'll take mine
    The paths have both been beaten
    Searchin' for a change of pace
    Love needs to be sweetened
    I scream my heart out, just to make a dime
    And with that dime i bought your love
    But now i've changed my mind

    I'm not your fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    I'm no fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    Never again, no, no
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    I'm no fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool

    I count the falling tears
    They fall before my eyes
    Seems like a thousand years
    Since we broke the ties
    Ohhh

    I'm not your fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    I'm no fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    I'm no fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    I'm no fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool

    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool

    Nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    No, nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool
    No, nobody's fool
    Nobody's fool

  • Susan from South CarolinaYan from Ottawa, it looks like she is someone named Kristi Authur.
  • John from CanadaKiller tune and a great band!
  • Manuela M Moran from Midland TxI have always lived this song. Rock at its most perfection.
  • Stephanie Coda from Pittsburgh PaI’m not understanding how Joni from NY is calling this a poser band? What does that even mean? Tom Keifer sounds the same now live as back in the day! This is one of the OG Hair Bands and Tom Keifer definitely knows what he’s doing!
  • Storm from Glam Metal NeverlandThis was the second song I heard by Cinderella, following 'Don't Know What You Got 'Til It's Gone" Even though "Somebody Save Me" is my favorite, this one has a place in my heart as the first actual 'Power Ballad' I ever heard at the age of 8. Nevertheless, Cinderella has great songs, and Tom has amazing songwriting skills.
  • Yan from Ottawa, CanadaO.k. can someone tell me what is the name of the girl in the video Nobody's Fool playing Cinderella. Dam! This Girl is the look a like of my first love back in High School (1987)!!!
  • Joni from New York, NyI like this song. Though Cinderella seems like a poser band, I'll admit the band had catchy sounds. It is on that "Monsters of Rock" album. I like the way LeBar looks in the video.
  • Michael from Tasmaniagreat song
    but my favourite song off Night Songs is Nothin For Nothin, thats a great song, also Back Home again
    but you gotta love Nobodys Fool, its a great ballad
  • Rae from Sydney, AustraliaI like this song. "Shake me" reminds me way to much of AC/DC's "you shook me all night long". the lyrics are pretty similar. Does anyone know if that is on purpose?
  • Vicki from Miramichi, CanadaThis song is way under-rated.. I can't believe more people haven't commented on it! Maria from Atlanta. I salute you! This song is awsome.. I also enjoy "Shake Me"
    Vicki,Canada
  • Maria from Atlanta, GaI can clearly remember seeing this video on MTV, and owning the record. This was always one of my favories. I was able to have the privilage of seeing them live in the Summer of 2002. It was an amazing show. This will always be an incredible show.
