FOOL AM I
as rec by Anita O'Day w Gene Krupa & his Orch
Mar 12th 1941 New York
What a fool am I to love you so dearly,
What a fool am I to show it so clearly.
I've been acting like a schoolgirl in her first romantic affair,
But I can't change this feeling, I'm so in love I don't care!
What a fool am I to spend days in dreaming,
When I know that I should really be scheming.
But instead I'll keep on waiting till the day that you'll be mine,
And I'll play the part of a broken heart, foolish fool am I!
