"Poor Little Fool" as written by and Shari K Sheeley....
I used to play around with hearts that hastened at my call
But when I met that little girl I knew that I would fall

Poor little fool, oh yeah, I was a fool, uh huh

She played around and teased me with her carefree devil eyes
She'd hold me close and kiss me but her heart was full of lies

Poor little fool, oh yeah, I was a fool, uh huh

She told me how she cared for me and that we'd never part
And so for the very first time I gave away my heart

Poor little fool, oh yeah, I was a fool, uh huh

The next day she was gone and I knew she'd lied to me
She left me with a broken heart and won her victory

Poor little fool, oh yeah, I was a fool, uh huh

I'd played this game with other hearts but I never thought I'd see
The day that someone else would play love's foolish game with me

Poor little fool, oh yeah, I was a fool, uh huh

    General Commentthis song was written by Sharon Seeley, a close friend of Ricky Nelson - she had
    written it about an affair she had with one of the Everly Bros, who was married at
    the time - she gave it to Ricky to use, of course after he changed the gender of
    the lyrics - pretty simple stuff: the singer had played the game a few times and
    got away with it; this time, the singer got played
    on a separate note, Sharon had been the fiance of Eddie Cochran, rock singer
    and Ricky's best friend who had been killed in a car accident
