Fooled Ya Baby

on Can'tneverdidnothin' (2005), Largo 2007 (2007)

I hid my heart in self-defense
I felt the break and consequence
Never to return to meltin' feelin's inside
And oh, I've told myself, wouldn't fall again

Even in the light of day
You'll never see
How much I feel, feel for you baby
How much you mean to me

'Cause I fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I'm goin' crazy wishin' I could tell ya
Fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
But now you're in love with somebody else

I fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I wish I could tell ya, how much I love ya
Fooled ya baby, fooled ya
But I'm the fool

I bit my lip with ignorance
I kept it quiet and sat on the fence, yeah
Never thought it made a difference, no, no, oh
But my time has come and gone
And honey, I never took the chance

And oh, even in the light of day
You'll never see
How much I feel for you baby
How much you mean to me

I fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I'm goin' crazy wishin' I could tell ya
Fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
But now you're in love with somebody else

I fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I wish I could tell ya, how much I love ya
Fooled ya baby, fooled ya
But I'm the fool

I count the hours till I see your face
I'd stop the world from turnin' out in outer space
I'd get back the time that's been erased
Just to have you near me, just to hear you say

That I'm yours till the day you die
And ain't nobody else in your life
Ain't nobody ever made me feel
Sexy like I was wearin' a new pair of heels

I fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I'm goin' crazy wishin' I could tell ya
Fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
But now you're in love with somebody else

I fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I wish I could tell ya, how much I love ya
Fooled ya baby, fooled ya
But I'm the fool

I'm the fool
I'm goin' crazy for you baby
I'm goin' crazy for you baby

Fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I fooled ya baby, fooled ya baby
I'm goin' crazy
I'm goin' crazy

Don't you know
I'm the fool?
