"Fool To Cry" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
When I come home baby
And I've been working all night long
I put my daughter on my knee, and she says
"Daddy what's wrong?"
I put my head on her shoulder
She whispers in my ear so sweet
You know what she says?
"Daddy you're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why"

You know, I got a woman
And she lives in the poor part of town
And I go see her sometimes
And we make love, so fine
I put my head on her shoulder
She says, "Tell me all your troubles"
You know what she says?
She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why"

Daddy you're a fool to cry
Oh, I love you so much baby
Daddy you're a fool to cry
Daddy you're a fool to cry, yeah
She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why"

She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry
Daddy you're a fool to cry
Daddy you're a fool to cry
Daddy you're a fool to cry

Even my friends say to me sometimes
And make out like I don't understand them
You know what they say?
They say, "Daddy you're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why"

I'm a fool baby
I'm a fool baby
I'm a certified fool, now
I want to tell ya
Gotta tell ya, baby
I'm a fool baby
I'm a fool baby
Certified fool for ya, mama, come on
I'm a fool
I'm a fool
I'm a fool

    General CommentWow! I can't believe that there aren't more posts on this fantastic song! Mick's vocals are so tender and fragile. It's a very underrated Stone's song.

    General CommentThis is a brilliant song, the stones do it right. The vocals are sweet. I think its about a man, who has the world at his feet, He could have it so much worse. Just like all of us, doesnt matter how right things might be in or lives, everyones gets the blues, but he is loved, and we're still loved!

    General CommentI like this song a lot. It doesn't sound like anything else. Great chill-out song. I think it was in the movie "Beautiful Girls" (which is great by the way).
