(Kesler)


Information:
If Im a Fool (For Loving You) was written by Stan Kesler. One of the early recordings was by Jimmy Clanton on Phillips Records (Phillips 40208) in 1964. Elvis recorded the song at American Sound Studios in Memphis on February 21, 1969.

 

Lyrics:

If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be

They're saying I am just your clown and any fool could see
That you're just having fun and you're not in love with me
The things they're saying may be true, but there's something they can't see
If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be

1. If I'm a dreamer, let me dream

If I'm your clown I'll steal the show
If things are not the way they seem, please don't ever let me know
If I am blind it's because I just don't want to see
If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be

1. (repeat)
If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be
If I'm a fool for loving you...
