Fool for Your Loving
Whitesnake Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yeah, yeah, mmm
I was born under a bad sign
Left out in the cold
I'm a lonely man who knows
Just what it means to lose control

But I took all the heartache
And turned it to shame
Now I'm moving moving on
And I ain't taking the blame

Don't come running to me
I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man

So I can say it to you babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying I always end up crying
Fool for your loving no more
I'll be a fool for your loving no more

I'm tired of hiding my feelings
You left me lonely too long
I gave my heart and you tore it apart
Oh baby you done me wrong

Don't come running to me
I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man

So I can say it to you babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying I always end up crying
Fool for your loving no more
I'll be a fool for your loving no more

I'll be a fool for your loving no more no more no more

So I can say it to you babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying I always end up crying
Fool for your loving no more
A fool for your loving no more

No more, no more
Fool for your loving no more
Fool for your loving no more
Fool for your loving no more
Fool for your loving no more




Fool for your loving no more
Fool for your loving no more

I was born under a bad sign
I believe I have been unlucky throughout my life


Left out in the cold
I have been abandoned and alone


I'm a lonely man who knows
I understand the feeling of loneliness all too well

Don't expect me to provide comfort or support

David Coverdale doesn’t get half the recognition he deserves. He is one of the best rock vocalists ever. His vocals on slow & easy are out standing.

@mauricetrotter6010

I agree.Although Robert Plant did see them as a Led Zeppelin copy.

@eriklarson9137

Underrated. amirite

@mcchicken5039

​@@mauricetrotter6010well fuck that guy Led Zeppelin in my opinion respectfully. Are overrated. Never liked them. They make goofy ah Harry Potter type beats

@KenWilliamson

Pretty sure he's recognized as one of the top rock vocalists of all time. He was when Whitesnake were huge, that's for sure. There was no-one else close. One of my favourite all time vocals.

@RobertSmith-js2kz

According to who? Maybe if you were born yesterday.

Never more humankind will have another David Coverdale. He has got the most powerful voice in History of Rock and at the same time most tricky- changing short and long distances, sudden stops, amazing emphasizing of words at the right time, giving all of his soul in the song. Simply, the best ever vocal in History of Hard Rock. No more another like him- 1000% sure. "Fool for Your Loving No More" epic and never surpassed by anybody.

@briancunningham9037

hes great, but come on? 😄 there are better. Plus his vocals weren't always on form live (however, he seemed to always give it his all, so...)! Legend, yes. The most powerful voice in history of rock... sadly, no!

@hamandvaid

@@briancunningham9037 Freddy Mercury? Devin Townsend (not strictly rock)? Rob Halford? Axl?

@LS-ki9ft

Steve Vai on guitar and the beautiful Tawny Kitaen. RIP, Tawny,. You made the 80s burn bright.
