Whitesnake - Fool for Your Loving


Whitesnake - Fool for your loving - Meaning of the song


This was originally released on Whitesnake's 1980 album Ready an' Willing where it was a #13 hit on the British charts in 1980 and reached #53 in the US. The band re-recorded the track on their 1989 studio album Slip Of The Tongue, and it became a hit single again, reaching a high of #43 in the UK and #37 in the US.


Co-written by David Coverdale, Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody, the song was inspired by the breakup of Coverdale's first marriage.

Coverdale explains:

"You can look at my first marriage and see 'Fool For Your Lovin' and 'Don't Break my Heart Again.' A lot of those were fueled by songs about a relationship that once was very positive but sadly was unfolding into not positive."

Fool for your loving - Lyrics

I was born under a bad sign,

Left out in the cold

I'm a lonely man who knows

Just what it means to lose control


But, I took all the heartache

And turned it to shame,

Now I'm moving, moving on,

And I ain't taking the blame


Don't come running to me,

I know I've done all I can

A hard loving woman like you

Just makes a hard loving man


So I can say it to you, babe

I'll be a fool for your loving no more,

A fool for your loving no more

I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,

Fool for your loving no more

I'll be a fool for your loving no more


I'm tired of hiding my feelings,

You left me lonely too long

I gave my heart, and you tore it apart,

Oh, baby, you done me wrong


Don't come running to me,

I know I've done all I can

A hard loving woman like you

Just makes a hard loving man


So I can say it to you, babe

I'll be a fool for your loving no more,

A fool for your loving no more

I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,

Fool for your loving no more

I'll be a fool for your loving no more


I'll be a fool for your loving no more, no more, no more


So I can say it to you, babe

I'll be a fool for your loving no more,

A fool for your loving no more

I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,

Fool for your loving no more

A fool for your loving no more


Fool for your loving no more...
