I'm A Fool To Want You

Album: The Best of the Columbia Years 1943-1952 (1951)
  • I'm a fool to want you
    I'm a fool to want you
    To want a love that can't be true
    A love that's there for others too

    I'm a fool to hold you
    Such a fool to hold you
    To seek a kiss not mine alone
    To share a kiss that devil has known

    Time and time again I said I'd leave you
    Time and time again I went away
    But then would come the time when I would need you
    And once again these words I'd have to say

    Take me back, I love you
    It hit me, I need you
    I know it's wrong, it must be wrong
    But right or wrong I can't get along

    Without you Writer/s: Frank Sinatra, Jack Wolf, Joel S. Herron

  • Michael from OrléansI remember buying Ketty Lester's "Love Letters " in 1962 - her "I'm a Fool to Want Her" was the B side. I also remember thinking that this was one of the longest singles going at the time.
