"Fool That I Am" as written by and Floyd Hunt....
Fool that I am,
For falling in love with you.
And a, fool that I am,
For thinking you loved me, too.

You took my heart,
Then played the part of little coquette.
And, all my dreams just disappeared
Like the smoke from a cigarette.

Fool that I am,
For hoping you'd understand.
And thinking you
Would listen, too,
And, oh, the things I had planned.

But we couldn't see eye to eye
So, darling, darling, darling,
This is goodbye.
But I still care, but I still care,
And oh, fool that I am.
Oh, but I still care,
Fool that I am.

    General CommentI love Etta. And this song is so quaint. It's typical Etta...simple and to the point. Often songs in Etta's day were about women being fools for men who treated them poorly. They were fiscally dependent upon the male gender and it was frowned on to be "kept" by a man if he weren't her husband, so women often married duds...and put up with their bad behaviors. Somehow I doubt Miss Etta put up with too much poo, but I could be wrong.
