Fooled Around And Fell In Love

Recommended Posts

The Spinners' "Working My Way Back To You Girl" is a lot like that, and around the same era. Great song:

I'll keep working my way back to you, babe

With a burning love inside

Hey, I'm working my way back to you, babe

And the happiness that died

I let it get away

Do-do, do-da, do

(Been paying every day)

Do-do, do-da, do

When you were so in love with me

I played around like I was free

Thought I could have my cake and eat it too

But how I cried over losing you

See, I'm down and out

But I ain't about to go living my life without you

Hey, every day

I made you cry

I'll pay and, girl

'Til the day I die

I'll keep working my way back to you, babe

With a burning love inside

Yeah, I'm working my way back to you, babe

And the happiness that died

I let it get away

Do-do, do-da, do

(Been paying every day)

Do-do, do-da, do

Oh, I used to love to make you cry

It made me feel like a man inside

If I had been a man in reality

You'd be here, baby, loving me

Now my nights are long and lonely

And I ain't too proud, babe

I just miss you so

Girl, but you're too proud

And you won't give in

But when I think about all I could win

I'll keep working my way back to you, babe

With a burning love inside

Yeah, I'm working my way back to you, babe

And the happiness that died

I let it get away

Do-do, do-da, do

(Been paying every day)

Do-do, do-da, do

(Yooooou, you, babe)

My road is kind of long

(Yooooou, you, babe)

I just gotta get back home

Whoa, I'm really sorry for acting that way

I'm really sorry

Ooh, little girl

I'm really sorry for telling you lies

For so long

Oh, please, forgive me, girl

Come on (give me a chance)

Won't you forgive me, girl

Hey (let's have romance)

Ooh, forgive me, girl (let's try again)

Come on, forgive me, girl

I want you over and over

And over and over again

Yes, a great song. Mickey Thomas, later of "Starship" does the lead vocal.

His rendition of "Sara" is just so beautiful also.

Here's a couple of from the 60s that might qualify. :)

Falling (Roy Orbison)

....................................

I'm falling, I'm falling

Falling in love with you

Baby, Come closer closer to me, And listen listen so carefully

Remember all the nights that I told you that I loved you

It wasn't true,I used you,And you were just someone new

To thrill this lonely heart of mine

I was lying all the time

Pretending to be falling in love with you

But it's different now, I've kissed you now

So forgive me forgive me somehow

Hold me tight for tonight, Then tell me true

If you still love me, Say that you love me

Don't leave me now

Now that I'm falling for you

I'm falling, I'm falling

Falling in love, Falling in love with you

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I Should Have Known Better (Beatles)

....................................

I should have known better with a girl like you

That I would love everything that you do

And I do, hey hey hey, and I do

Whoa-oh I never realised what a kiss could be

This could only happen to me

Can't you see, can't you see

That when I tell you that I love you oh

You're gonna say you love me too oh

And when I ask you to be mine

You're gonna say you love me too

So I should have realised a lot of things before

If this is love you gotta give me more

Give me more, hey hey hey, give me more

Whoa-oh I never realised what a kiss could be

This could only happen to me

Can't you see, can't you see

That when I tell you that I love you oh

You're gonna say you love me too oh

And when I ask you to be mine

You're gonna say you love me too

You love me too

You love me too

You love me too...

"Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" -- Rupert Holmes

Not sure if this one fits , but it should be mentioned (it's just so DAMN GREAT) : " Third Rate Romance" -- The Amazing Rythm Aces (performed notably by numerous country artists )
