  • She don't know it she's a lucky girl
    Got the best thing in the whole wide world
    Got a love that's hard to find
    Got the boy I wish was mine,
    But, she's a fool
    She's a fool
    She has his love but treats him cruel
    He don't know it but she cheats on him
    With a boy like that it's such a sin
    I would never be untrue
    I would never make him blue
    But, she's a fool
    She's a fool
    She has his love but treats him cruel
    I know there is a gonna come a day
    He will tell her girl be on your way
    Maybe then he'll turn to me
    Then how happy I will be, that
    She's a fool
    She's a fool
    She has his love but treats him cruel
    She's a fool
    She's a fool
    She has his love but treats him cruel
    She's a fool
    She's a fool Writer/s: BEN RALEIGH, MARK BARKAN

  • AnonymousAccording to what I found they're saying shag a doo la after she's a fool.
  • Timmers from Branford CtWhat are the words the men are singing between the words, "shes a fool?". Sounds like bossanova.
  • Moanin' Lisa from Chillicothe Mo.When I was a teen in the Sexy Sixties, I was a big Lesley Gore fan. Of course, times were different then & rock and roll was young, but so diverse too. Gore was The Teen Queen. I think the great Quincy Jones was the producer on all her records so that really made a great impact on the charts. Lesley was in most all the music magazines of the time & had a huge fan base. Now this song was one of her best. Great beat, great lyrics, great singing, & great production. My boyfriend in high school at the time had such a "crush" on Lesley Gore that I got outright jealous of her at first. But I learned it was just a "fan crush." Ahh, memories, huh?
  • T. Porter from Raymond, NhLeslie Gore was without question, a very real part of the 1960s. She had an incredible voice and she was absolutly beautiful. Her songs made one want to see her when she sang. The songs she sang that took notice really took notice. She is a living legend by most standards. Today, her songs bring back a time for the generation that grew up with her songs, fond memories of when they were in school and dating. That unmistakable voice can still bring back feelings of youth and love and the passion of being young. My wish is that she had, at least once, teamed up and did a dueo with Elvis. Together, they would have really rocked. Leslie, if you ever read this, Thank you. You were the girl every guy wanted to find and many dreamed of.
