Love's Made a Fool of You

Love's Made a Fool of You

Escrita por Buddy Holly y Bob Montgomery

Interpretada por Buddy Holly

Buddy y Bob compusieron "Love's Made a Fool of You" y "Wishing" con Phil y Don Everly en mente. Por eso, en junio de 1958, y aprovechando los servicios de Tommy Allsup (guitarra eléctrica), George Atwood (bajo) y Bo Clark (batería), Holly se encerró en el estudio de Norman Petty para registrar ambos temas con la idea de hacérselos llegar a los hermanos Everly. Sin embargo, éstos no llegaron nunca a grabarlos, y la demo de "Love's Made a Fool of You" con la voz de Buddy acabaría formando parte del LP "Showcase" (1964). Además, The Crickets, ya sin Holly, grabaron su propia versión, incluyéndola en un sencillo que, editado en marzo de 1959, consiguió cierto éxito en Inglaterra.

Love can make a fool of you

You do anything it wants you to

Love can make you feel so good

When it goes like you think it should

Or it can make you cry at night

When your baby don't treat you right

When you're feelin' sad and blue

You know love's made a fool of you

 

You know love makes fools of men

But you don't care, you're gonna try again

Time goes by, it's passing fast

You think true love has come at last

But by and by you're gonna find

Crazy love has made you blind

When you're feelin' sad and blue

You know love's made a fool of you

 

Love can make you feel so good

When it goes like you think it should

Or it can make you cry at night

When your baby don't treat you right

When you're feelin' sad and blue

You know love's made a fool of you
