Fool's Paradise

Escrita por Sonny LeGlaire, Horace Linsley y Norman Petty

Interpretada por The Crickets (Brunswick 9-55072, 1958)

Esta canción llegó a manos de Norman Petty, Buddy y The Crickets a través de Southern Music Publishing y fue grabada a mediados de febrero de 1958 en Clovis. Posteriormente se añadió el piano de Vi Petty y los coros, por primera vez, de The Roses, viendo la luz en un sencillo que incluyó también "Think It Over". 

You took me up to heaven

When you took me in your arms

I was dazzled by your kisses

Blinded by your charms

I was lost in a fool's paradise

Good and lost in a fool's paradise

 

When you told me that you loved me

I gave my heart to you

And I wondered if there could be

Any truth in love so new

I was lost in a fool's paradise

Good and lost in a fool's paradise

 

The whole world was my kingdom

And your love the gem in my crown

Then I saw you glance at a new romance

And my love came tumbling down

 

Though you treat me kind-a coolish

And may never let me know

That you think I'm being foolish

Because I love you so

I'll still get lost in a fool's paradise

Lost with you in a fool's paradise

 

Though you treat me kind-a coolish

And may never let me know

That you think I'm being foo-oo-oo-lish

Because I love you so

I'll still get lost in a fool's paradise

Lost with you in a fool's paradise

Lost with you in a fool's paradise
