Perry Como - "What Kind of Fool Am I?" lyrics

What kind of fool am I, who never fell in love'
It seems that Im the only one that I have been thinkin of!
What kind of man is this, an empty shell'
A lonely cell in which an empty heart must dwell!

What kind of lips are these, that lied with every kiss'
That whispered empty words of love that left me alone like this'
Why cant I fall in love like any other man'
And maybe then Ill know what kind of fool I am!

Why cant I fall in love like any other man'
And maybe then Ill kno what kind of fool I am!

~ from the 1961 Stage Musical "Stop the World I Want to Get Off"
