The Drifters were formed in 1953, with ex-Dominoes singer Clyde McPhatter as front man. By the time they recorded this number, however, McPhatter had left the group and Johnny Moore had taken his place (note that this is not the same Johnny Moore who sang with the Three Blazers). The Drifters must have had the most unstable lineup in the history of pop groups, but at the time they recorded the original version of "Fools Fall In Love," the group consisted of Johnny Moore, Gerhart Thrasher, Charlie Hughes, and Tommy Evans. The recording was released as a single on Atlantic 1123.
Elvis's recording was first released as the B-side of "Indescribably Blue."

Fools Fall In Love
performed by:
The Drifters



Well, fools fall in love in a hurry
Fools give their hearts much too soon
Just play them two bars of Stardust
Just hang out one silly moon, oh, oh

And they've got their love torches burning
When they should be playing it cool
I used to laugh but now I understand
Shake the hand of a brand new fool

Well, fools fall in love Just like schoolgirls
Blinded by rose colored dreams
They build their castles on wishes
With only rainbows for beams, oh, oh

They're making plans for the future
When they should be right back in school
I used to laugh but now I understand
Shake the hand of a brand new fool



Fools Fall In Love

Elvis Presley

Fools give their hearts much too soon
Just play them two bars of stardust
Just hang out one silly moon Oh!

They've got their love torches burning
When they should be playing it cool
I used to laugh but now I'm the same
Take a look at a brand new fool

Fools fall in love just like schoolgirls
Blinded by rose colored dreams
They build their castles on wishes
With only rainbows for beams Oh!

They're making plans for the future
When they should be right back in school
I used to laugh but now I'm the same
Take a look at a brand new fool
All right!
