Lyrics

CRUISING WITH RUBEN & THE JETS version -
When I won your love
I was very glad
Every happiness in the world
Belonged to me
Then our love was lost
And you went away
Now I shed my tears
In lonely misery
I know now that you never ever really loved me
It hurts me now to think you never ever really cared
I sit and ask myself a thousand times
To try and find
What really happened to the love that we shared
How could I be such a fool?
How could I believe all those lies you told me?
How could I be taken in by your sweet face?
You spoiled our love
You ruined my life
I'm so, so down
I'm a terrible disgrace
But there will come a time
And you'll regret the way
You treated me as if I was a fool
And didn't know
The many times you lied
About your love for me
Someone else is gonna know
That your love was just a show
How could I be such a fool?

Notes About This Song

FZ liner notes on "Freak Out!" (1966): "'How Could I Be Such A Fool' is based on a modified nanigo rhythm. We call it a Motown Walz. It stays in 3/4 time throughout, but shifts in the accents occur from section to section. As an American teen-ager (as an American), this means nothing to you. (I always wondered if I could write a love song.)."

This song is not on the 1LP version of "Freak Out"
