a Fool Such as I
Elvis Presley Lyrics


Now and then there's a fool such as I
Pardon me, if I'm sentimental
When we say goodbye
Don't be angry with me should I cry
When you're gone, yet I'll dream
A little dream as years go by

Now and then there's a fool such as I (fool such as I)
Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through
I'm a fool, but I'll love you dear
Until the day I die

Now and then there's a fool such as I

Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through
I'm a fool, but I'll love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there's a fool such as I (fool such as I)
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I

Now and then there's a fool such as I

"(Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I"

Now and then there's a fool such as I
Pardon me, if I'm sentimental
When we say goodbye
Don't be angry with me should I cry
When you're gone, yet I'll dream
A little dream as years go by
Now and then there's a fool such as I

Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through
I'm a fool, but I'll love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there's a fool such as I

Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through
I'm a fool, but I'll love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I



Dixie Dale

In some of his performances, he replaced these lyrics:

You taught me how,
To love, and now,
You want to say goodbye.

With these lyrics:

You taught me how,
To milk a cow,
And now you say goodbye.

Was Elvis just fooling around when he did this, or were the lyrics on top just too racy for some areas of the country back then?

colonel sanderz

this is good elvis, back when he was young and healthy...this is the way i prefer to remember him.

EL HYLIANO ASTURIANO

Me too

Nita Sheehan

Me too Colonel, I was one of those young girls who screamed to the top of her lungs when I saw him first in person, then tv, then movies. Being Southern, I was extra proud. I liked him best when he was young, innocent, beautiful, authentic, and most importantly, having the time of his life.

Demery James

I wished Elvis haven't died at such a young age. He's been tooken out of this world way too soon and I wished he stayed away from drugs.

Nita Sheehan

That's the truth! Elvis was fabulous from the start, and I was a fan from the very beginning.

Speeddemon

I'm so sad that I was born in the wrong century; I would really love to live in the 60's.
