Daddy You’re a Fool to Cry…

Happy Birthday to Daddy’s girl… image

Whenever I hear the song “Fool to Cry” from the Rolling Stones, Nicole my daughter, comes to my mind immediately…

I grew up with 2 older brothers.  I always wanted a sister.  I always wanted a daughter.  Nicole has been the backbone of our family.  Always has been mature beyond her years, always the voice of reason, Sintty’s splittin image, always making sure I was brought back in line whenever I crossed that line.

imageBecause there were times when I did come home late from working all night long and I put Nicole on my knees  and she says,”Daddy what’s wrong?”…I put my head on her shoulder,  she whispers in my ear so sweet.  You know what she says?  “Daddy you’re a fool to cry…You’re a fool to cry..And it makes me wonder why”…image

That is why she is and will always be Daddy’ girl.

When I come home baby
And I’ve been working all night long
I put my daughter on my knee, and she says
“Daddy what’s wrong?”
I put my head on her shoulder
She whispers in my ear so sweet
You know what she says?
“Daddy you’re a fool to cry
You’re a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why”You know, I got a woman
And she lives in the poor part of town
And I go see her sometimes
And we make love, so fine
I put my head on her shoulder
She says, “Tell me all your troubles”
You know what she says?
She says, “Daddy you’re a fool to cry
You’re a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why”Daddy you’re a fool to cry
Oh, I love you so much baby
Daddy you’re a fool to cry
Daddy you’re a fool to cry, yeah
She says, “Daddy you’re a fool to cry
You’re a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why”She says, “Daddy you’re a fool to cry
Daddy you’re a fool to cry
Daddy you’re a fool to cry
Daddy you’re a fool to cryEven my friends say to me sometimes
And make out like I don’t understand them
You know what they say?
They say, “Daddy you’re a fool to cry
You’re a fool to cry
You’re a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why”I’m a fool baby
I’m a fool baby
I’m a certified fool, now
I want to tell ya
Gotta tell ya, baby
I’m a fool baby
I’m a fool baby
Certified fool for ya, mama, come on
I’m a fool
I’m a fool
I’m a fool
Rolling Stones
