A blues song by the ever-prolific "Deadric Malone", made famous by Bobby "Blue" Bland (a big, big R&B hit in 1961 or so), but sung and/or recorded, in one form or another, by dozens and dozens of artistes over the decades, including Little Stevie Wonder, The Manish Boys, the Butterfield Blues Band, and Ann "I Can't Stand the Rain" Peebles. If Mr. T ever recorded it, I have a morbid curiosity in hearing it. Is there a Mr. T Pities [sic] the Fool LP out there? Mr. T Sings the Blues, perhaps?


I pity the fool
I pity the fool
I pity the fool
I pity the fool that falls in love with you
And expects you to be true
I pity the fool

Look at the people
I know you wonder what they're doing
They're just standing there
Watching you make a fool out of me
Look at the people
I know you wonder what they're doing
They're just standing there
Watching you make a fool out of me

I pity the fool that falls in love with you
I pity the fool
I pity the fool who falls in love with you
You'll break his heart one day
Then you'll laugh and walk away
I pity the fool

Despite popular belief, Mr. T never said this infamouse phrase on tv's "The A-Team". He said it in his villianous role in Rocky III. Also in some guest spot appearances, although I believe that was after his appearance in the feature film.
