Fool, fool, fool
That I was to fall for you.
Well, fool, fool, fool
That I was to fall for you.
Well, I know what a fool I was
To think that you could love me, too.

Well, well, when I first met you, baby,
Well, I knew I couldn't win,
But I just kept right on trying,
'Cause trying is no sin.

What a fool, fool, fool,
That I was to fall for you.
Well, I know what a fool I was
To think that you could love me, too.

Well, when I first met you, baby,
Well, I knew I couldn't win,
But I just kept right on trying,
'Cause trying is no sin.

What a fool that I was to fall for you.
Well, I know what a fool I was
To think that you could love me too.
Recorded: 1955/01 or 1955/02, first released on The King of Rock 'n' Roll

This one was played live in a radio studio in January or February 1955 in Lubbock, Texas. Great guitar playiung by Scotty.

I like this song immensely and I've never skipped it while listening to any CD that it's on. I was very thrilled and happy when I bought "The King Of Rock 'N' Roll" five cd box set in 1992 to find out that this never before issued Elvis track was included. I never even knew of the existence of this song before I actually bought that five cd box set. Elvis' performance of this song was brilliant and my favorite era of Elvis' career will always be the 1950's.

Only a so so song and a reasonable performance but nothing outstanding. I put this in the same bag as the Sun version of When It Rains It Really Pours - given time what could have been.

Back in the 90's, I was so happy to have a new Elvis song when I bought the 50's box set and this song was on it. As a stand alone track it is ok song and a good performance, but not one of Elvis' best and a song I rarely listen to it.

There was actually a album release by ELVIS titled the "Fool" album. ELVIS definitely was no fool. He's "The King".

I too would have liked, to have heard him record, a studio version of this song, in the 50s. I do like the other "fool" songs he recorded, like "A Fool such as I" & "If I'm a Fool for Loving you" & "The Fool".. and "Fool" . All 4 are real good performances.

Charming to hear Elvis in his early days having fun with this song. Three stars from me.
