Frankie Valli - I Make A Fool Of Myself Lyrics




When I'm away from you
I know what to say and do
But every time you're near
My courage disappears, ah ha

The words are on my lips
When my composure slips
While you're collected and cool
I make a fool of myself

I want so much to be
The only love you see
I fall each time I try
To look good in your eyes, ah ha

Don't know if I'll get through
Being destroyed by you
While you're collected and cool
I make a fool of myself

Hey, little girl
How could you care
Little girl, you're unaware
Of the love I have to share
Inside me dying, oh, I'm crying

Lord above please let me see
She's the life and breath of me
How my heart is breakin' when I'm sleepin', wakin'
I keep making a fool of myself

I want so much to be
The only love you see
I fall each time I try
To look good in your eyes, ah ha

Don't know if I'll get through
Being destroyed by you
While you're collected and cool
I make a fool of myself

Oh, little girl
How could you care
Little girl, you're unaware
Of the love I have to share
Inside me dying, oh, I'm crying

Frankie Valli I Make A Fool Of Myself Comments
  1. Julia Gribble

    The higher I climb, the further I fall when I do
    I guess I'll take this loss on my wasted obsession with you
    I thought that I'd finally found something worth seeing through
    Now you only remind me of someone I thought that I knew
    I'll never fall how I fell when I saw you
    And I'll never feel how I felt when I called you
    And I'll never tell what I told you to anyone else
    How did I let you make me make a fool of myself?
    It makes me sick you know more than my friends about me
    It hurts like hell, 'cause
    I only fell for some girl you pretended to be
    You're a much better liar than anyone I've met before
    Now I just need some time til I don't cry about you no more
    I'll never fall how I fell when I saw you
    And I'll…

    Why are some of the best sounds of songs is when they fade out?

  3. keith stevenson

    11 July 2019 Keith Stevenson first time I've heard this. Super Thanks.

  4. Johnny Vack

    Love this song, but can't get his version on Spotify. Any suggestions from anyone, would be very appreciated.

  5. The Four Seasons And Me

    this is the most relatable song ever.

  6. Howard Simon

    This one is very similar to Can't Take My eyes off of you, I wonder which one was first. This is really a top 10 hit that should have been. Same goes for another 4seasons classic Everybody Knows My Name, outstanding.

  7. dd938gje

    The flip side ain't bad either

  8. patrick ryan

    Very nice follow-up to "Can't Take My Eyes off You". 11/2017

  9. Laura Lodder-Beeby

    It was bigger in Toronto...it made top 10 on the CHUM chart; Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You only reached #18!

  10. Egbert Souce

    Nice tune !! A close relative of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You". Maybe son of "Can't Take My Eyes............"???

  11. Ctae Kel

    My fav!!

  12. Andy Cisco

    When I'm away from youI know what to say and doBut every time you're nearMy courage disappears ah-ha
    The words are on my lipsWhen my composure slipsWhile you're collected and coolI make a fool of myself
    I want so much to beThe only love you seeI fail each time I tryTo look good in your eyes ah-ha
    Don't know if I'll get throughBeing destroyed by youWhile you're collected and coolI make a fool of myself
    Hey little girl
    How could you care
    Little girl, you're unaware
    Of the love I have to share
    Inside me dying
    Oh I'm crying

    Lord above please let her seeShe's the life and breath of meHow my heart is breakin'When I'm sleepin', wakin'I keep making a fool of myselfI want so much to beThe only love you seeI fail each time I tryTo look good in your eyes ah-ha

    Oh little girlHow could you careLittle girl, you're unawareOf the love I have to shareInside me dyingOh I'm crying Lord above please let her seeShe's the life and breath

    😍 ooh Frankie

    Rosamelia Alvarenga

    The best of frankie!

  14. shyman99

    Should have been as big as "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You"? It is the same song essentially except for the classical interlude before each chorus. No reason to buy it if you already have the song it copies.

  15. Patricia Cogo

    eu amo essa canção com o Mitch Ryder

  16. Dee nSF

    Ah yes, this was my preference over "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", which I wore out, but this one for its own time was angsty. By contrast it seemed quieter and more personal, as though he were signing it to someone not present though distant. A lovely song it was . . . thanks for posting.

    I absolutly Love Mr Vallli I was 4 when Sherry came out but m mom bought it for her so I grew up on the 4 Seasons. This song is wonderful, one of my favs. Should have done much better on charts,ANYTHING this man does is pure gol, just like the bunny on TV hes just keeps going and going (from Jersey Boys Movie, and Ive seen the play 16 times and will again

  18. terry sacravitch

    This is one of 5 top 20 hits for Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons in 1967.

  19. Ifitallfails
