Only a Fool
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Why do I keep fooling myself
When I know you love someone else
Only a fool breaks his own heart
I pretend that I don't see
When you walk with him down the street
Only a fool breaks his own heart
I have to admit it
Even though you hurt me so girl
I can't forget it
If I'm a man I'd let you go
It's no use trying to hang on

To a love already gone
Only a fool breaks his own heart
I have to admit it
Even though you hurt me so girl
I can't forget it
If I'm a man I'd let you go
It's no use trying to hang on
To a love already gone
Only a fool breaks his own heart
Only a fool breaks his own heart
Only a fool breaks his own heart

When I know you love someone else
Only a fool breaks his own heart
I pretend that I don't see
When you walk with him down the street
Only a fool breaks his own heart
I have to admit it
Even though you hurt me so girl
I can't forget it
If I'm a man I'd let you go
It's no use trying to hang on
To a love already gone
Only a fool breaks his own heart
I have to admit it
Even though you hurt me so girl
I can't forget it
If I'm a man I'd let you go
It's no use trying to hang on
To a love already gone
Only a fool breaks his own heart
Only a fool breaks his own heart
Only a fool breaks his own heart

when this song came out it went to the top of the charts in holland at number 1 for six months..that is a great achievement ...

Mar G

Because of the Surinamese people who live in the Netherlands... Suriname loves Mighty Sparrow, and specifically this song!

Femke Schouten

@Candice Simionescu well.. it sure felt like six month

Trinigrade01

@Candice Simionescu I stand corrected I got it wrong. It did stand for 27 weeks ( 6 months n 3 weeks) on Dutch charts but not at number one it peaked at #2 and in 1978 it finished as the #3 three song for the year. Still a great achievement for a man from the little island

Candice Simionescu

Absolutely not true. I'm Dutch and not one song topped the charts for six months.

My father loved this song, I grow up loving it too. Memories.

The one and only Mighty Sparrow, King of Calypso, often imitated but never, never could be replicated. This title belongs to him, no one can take it from him. God bless the King.

Recuerdo esta melodia desde mis años de escuela, y reconozco que me emocioné de volver a escucharla después de tantos años, ahora que soy un adulto me entero cual es su nombre, inolvidable!!!
Gracias por compartirla !!!

One of the most underrated performers of all time. I forgot Sparrow sung this. Takes me back to my short pants day's. #StMichealSchool
