Maybe I'm a fool for loving you so and
Maybe, maybe I'm a fool, I don't, I don't really know
But I can't, I can't stop loving you darling, oh yes
Though I tried, oh yes

And maybe, maybe your goodbye was so mean, so mean and unfair
Though you made me cry, my love's still there
And I know, I know that I'll long for your kisses, oh
Until I die, oh yes until I die

Well, I said all of my friends, all of my friends have told me
They said, "Aretha, why don't you find
You really need to find somebody new", yeah, oh oh yeah
But what they don't know
What they just don't know is in my heart
I'd be wishing, oh, that that someone was you

So, oh, it's all for you to decide
If you should decide to trap me once more
All you got to do, all you got to do is knock on my door
And I'll say, I'll say that I've taken you back

Yeah, taking you back would be foolish
Then maybe, oh, maybe I'm a fool
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
