  • I remember when
    I was five and you were ten, boy
    You knew that I was shy
    So you teased and made me cry
    But I loved you

    Then one day you came
    You told me you were leaving
    You gave your folks the blame
    And made me cry again
    When you said

    Little girl
    Please don't wait for me
    Wait patiently for love
    Someday it will surely come
    Ooh, little girl
    Please don't wait for me
    Wait patiently for love
    Someday it will surely come
    And I'm still waiting

    Ooh, I'm waiting
    Ooh, still waiting
    I'm just a fool
    Ooh, I'm a fool
    (I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
    To keep waiting
    (I'm just a fool)
    For you
    (I'm just a fool)
    Ooh, I'm waiting
    (I'm just a fool)
    I'm still waiting
    (I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
    For love
    (I'm just a fool)
    For you
    (I'm just a fool)

    Then someone finally came
    He told me that he loved me
    I put him off with lies
    He could see I had no eyes
    So he left me once again alone
    Like a child without her playmate
    I had to face the truth
    I was still in love with you
    But you said:

    Little girl
    Please don't wait for me
    Wait patiently for love
    Someday it will surely come
    Ooh, little girl
    Please don't wait for me
    Wait patiently for love
    Someday it will surely come
    And I'm still waiting

    Love has never shown his face
    Since the day you walked out that door
    You filled my life with empty space
    Come back
    Can't you see it's you I'm waiting for

    (I'm just a fool)
    Don't you know I'm waiting
    (I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
    I'm waiting for love
    For you, I miss you
    (I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
    I'm waiting
    (I'm just a fool)
    Come on back, boy
    (I'm just a fool)
    Come back, come back, come back, boy
    (I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
    I need you
    (I'm just a fool)
    And I want you
    (I'm just a fool)
    That's what my friends say
    (I'm just a fool)
    I'm a fool
    (I'm just a fool to keep waiting) Writer/s: Deke Richards, Dennis Lussier
