The Fool
Sanford Clark Lyrics


Gather round me buddies
Hold your glasses high
And drink to a fool, a crazy fool who told his baby goodbye

Too late he found out he loves her
So much he wants to die
But drink to a fool, a crazy fool who told his baby goodbye

He needs her, he needs her so
He wonders why he let her go

She's found a new love, buddy
He's a lucky guy
So drink to the fool, 'cause I'm that fool who told his baby goodbye

He needs her, he needs her so
He wonders why he let her go

She's found a new love, buddy
He's a lucky guy
So drink to the fool, 'cause I'm that fool who told my baby goodbye
Who told my baby goodbye, who told my baby goodbye

Gather round me buddy, raise your glasses high
And drink to a fool, a crazy fool
Who told his baby goodbye
Too late he found he loved her so much he wants to die

So drink to a fool, a crazy fool
Who told his baby goodbye
He needs her, he needs her so
He wonders why he let her go

She's found, she's found, she's found
A new love buddy, he's a lucky guy
So drink to a fool, a crazy fool
Who told his baby goodbye

Gather around me buddies
Hold your glasses high
And drink to a fool a crazy fool
Who told his baby goodbye

Too late he's found he loves her
So much he wants to die
But drink to a fool a crazy fool
Who told his baby goodbye

He needs her, he needs her so
He wonders why he let her go
She's found a new love buddy
He's a lucky guy
So drink to a fool cause I'm that fool
Who told my baby goodbye

He needs her, he needs her so
He wonders why he let her go
She's found a new love buddy
He's a lucky guy
So drink to a fool cause I'm that fool
Who told my baby goodbye
Who told my baby goodbye
Who told my baby goodbye...

I love rockabilly and read that Mr Clark passed away. I didn't think I was familiar with his work but instantly recognized The Fool as soon as it started to play. He was a pioneer, an under appreciated artist.

Way back in the 50s loved that song ,and a famous buddy of mine who was only about 16 loved it as well.Many years later he moved to US and became a famous guitarist and met Sanford ( i think at a recording studio ) He told me he wished he had got to know him better.
