"Chain Of Fools" as written by and Don Covay....
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

For five long years
I thought you were my man
But I found out
I'm just a link in your chain

You got me where you want me
I ain't nothin' but your fool
Ya treated me mean
Oh you treated me cruel

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

Every chain, has got a weak link
I might be weak yeah
But I'll give you strength
Oh, hey

You told me to leave you alone
My father said, "Come on home"
My doctor said, "Take it easy"
Oh but your lovin' is much too strong
I'm added to your

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

One of these mornings
The chain is gonna break
But up until the day
I'm gonna take all I can take, oh hey

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

Chain, chain, chai-i-in
Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
Chain of fools

    General CommentI think it can be taken almost as a feminist song, since it talks about a woman who is feeding the feeling of revenge on her heart on realizing how bastard his man is. And now she is able to put him under her wings ("I might be weak child, but I'll give you strength") for trying to take everything that she wants from him, including his infidelity, until the day she can release herself from him ("One of these mornings the chain is gonna break / But up until then, yeah, I'm gonna take all I can take"). She says:"From now on your vagabond heart is exclusively a property of mine!".

    Song MeaningI don't think of it as a feminist song because it would fit into any relationship, regardless of gender, if you felt like the other treated you mean, treated you cruel.

    General CommentOops, I did it again. When I wrote "...a woman who is feeding the feeling of revenge on her heart on realizing how bastard his man is.", of course I meant "on realizing how bastard her man is.".

    My OpinionShe found out her boyfriend has other woman too. He is playing that game for a long time now. Still she can not just leave him because his love is so good. One day she will leave but until then she stays his fool in the chain chain chain ...
