Ross, Diana - Love (Makes Me Do Foolish Things) Lyrics




Love, love, love makes me do foolish things
Sitting on by the phone, a phone that never rings
Hoping to hear you say you love me still
Knowing you never will.

Love, love, love has made a fool of me
Got me doing things, things that shouldn't be
Listening for the sound of your knock on my door
Knowing that sweet sound would be no more.

Funny how precious memories linger on
So long after you?e gone
Oooh, precious memories that all makes me cry
But I keep holding on, oh why should I?

All because love, love, love has made a fool of me
Speak your name softly each night
While holding your picture tight
When you took my heart, you took my soul
And it's far beyond control.

Funny how precious memories linger on
So long, long after you're gone
Oh, precious memories that all makes me cry
But I keep holding on, oh why should I?

All because love, love, love makes me do these things
Love, love, love, love has made a fool of me
Love, love, love makes me do foolish things.

Ross, Diana Love (Makes Me Do Foolish Things) Comments
  1. madminute

    Sorry Diana, Martha Reeves out shines and owns this song!

  2. berry divo

    As much as I adore Diana Ross, the ultimate version of this song is by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. Miss Reeves singing of this classic song is far superior to Miss Ross' much watered down and way too lightweight vocals on this song.

    madminute

    AFFIRMATIVE!

    Alexandra Dillard

    I strongly agree. Martha and the Vandellas own this song.

    madminute

    @Alexandra Dillard
    Indeed, Alexandra has a good ear for music.

    Alexandra Dillard

    @madminute Thank you. So do you. This version is dreamy-eyed. It's like they're saying "I lost a boy". Martha and the Vandellas put their heart and soul into this, saying "I lost my man". You feel the loss.

    @Alexandra Dillard
    Alexandra, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas never got the praise and recognition they deserved from the upper echelon of Motown, evidently their main push and focus was with Diana Ross.

  4. Nissey700

    Is mary Wilson and Florence Ballard on backgrounds?

    BriNic317

    Nissey700 yes but I think the andantes were added

  5. stillwill2215

    The most excellent version is by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, it is the gold standard, no doubt.

  6. moonrayz4

    version by "thee midniters" is the best
