|"I'm a Fool to Want You" is a 1951 song composed by
Frank Sinatra, Jack Wolf, and Joel Herron.
Frank Sinatra released the song as a Columbia single. The ballad is a
pop and jazz standard.
Frank Sinatra first recorded the song with the Ray Charles Singers on March 27, 1951 in an arrangement by Axel Stordahl in New York. It was the second song recorded at the sessions which began with "I Whistle a Happy Tune" and ended with "Love Me". He recorded a second version at the Capitol Tower in Hollywood on May 1, 1957, arranged and conducted by Gordon Jenkins, which was released in 1957 on the album Where Are You?. This album was Sinatra’s first recording for Capitol Records and his first stereo recording. Capitol also released the song as part of an EP, EAP-2-855, EBFI-855.
The song was released as a Columbia Records 10" 78 B side single in 1951 backed with "Mama Will Bark" (with Dagmar) as #39425, Matrix # CO-45185-1. The single reached #14 on the Billboard pop singles chart in a 7 week chart run beginning in June and #27 on Cashbox the same month in a 5 week chart run. "Mama Will Bark" reached #21. The song was re-released in 1954 as an A side Columbia single with "If I Forget You" as the B side. Columbia also released the song as part of an EP, 2559, which also featured "I Should Care", "I Could Write A Book", and "If You Are But A Dream".
The Columbia recording appeared on the 1966 album Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits: The Early Years, Volume Two. The song also appeared on the 1986 4-disc collection The Voice: Frank Sinatra, the Columbia Years (1943–1952) and the 1993 box-set album The Columbia Years 1943-1952: The Complete Recordings. The song also appeared on Frank Sinatra: The Best of the Columbia Years: 1943-1952 in 1995 and Frank Sinatra Sings His Greatest Hits in 1997 both on Columbia. In 2003, the song was included on the Sony collection The Essential Sinatra: The Columbia Years.

From Bobby Hatten (NNHS / Ferguson HS - '65) of VA - 09/22/15, 10:32 PM - "50-Year Reunion at Ferguson":
As you know I would have graduated with my Stuart Gardens friends at NN High School, but in 1962 I left you and my other classmates behind and went to Ferguson, close to my parents’ new home in Riverside. My Ferguson classmates and I are having our 50-year reunion in October and one of the ones who is missing is Martha Smith – another Magruder School classmate who also migrated to Ferguson High. I know that her cousin Pam Smith Arnold lives in Williamsburg and recently lost her husband. Could you give me Pam’s contact information so that she might be able to tell me where to send the reunion invitation to Martha, who was Martha Olney, but her husband John Olney died a few years back and I haven’t heard from her since then.
All is well with me – I am living in Gloucester with my wife Joyce, two hunting dogs, 2 cats and her rabbit, and still practicing law in Newport News – my old friend Brownie Shaffer Haracivet is my next door neighbor so I frequently get the NN High news from her class of 1962. My two red headed grandboys (Ryan and Jackson) live with my oldest daughter Cary and her husband in Ashburn, VA and my youngest, Meredith, is in Washington, D.C. and about to get married on New Year’s Eve. Parents age 91 and 90 are still living independently and going strong as are sister Mary Beth in New York City and brother Jay in Newport News.
I hope that you are well – thank
you for all of the efforts that you have made for so long to
make sure that your friends stay connected.
So good to hear from you, Bobby!
Pam actually bought a home in California last year to be with her daughter and grandson, Sammy. I've forwarded your note to her, and trust you'll hear from her soon. I searched in vain for Martha's third-grade (I think) picture showing her beautiful chestnut hair cut into bangs with a long pony tail. It's as though I imagined ever having it.
Tell Brownie hi for me! I used to stumble into the bathroom every morning hoping against hope that I would see Brownie Shaffer's face looking back at me in the mirror, but alas, it never happened (and still hasn't ).
I'm glad to hear your family is doing well. Tell your mama hi for me, too! I still cherish the cookbook she so graciously sent me nine years ago.
I have a blue eyed, red headed grandson myself, Bobby! His name is Buckley, but now he lives far, far away in California. Our other 17 grandchildren are scattered around in Illinois, Texas, California, and even Alberta. I miss them!
Take care, Bobby, and have a great time at your reunion!

|No, YOU'RE the
Thank you...Gee...don't know why I thought a month without a Newsletter reminder was too long. I'm in the process of retiring after 46+ years with Civil Service...these last weeks are apparently getting to me!!!!

|A man walked
into a bar and asked for a glass of water.
The bartender pulled out a shotgun and fired a shot, barely missing the man's head.
The man got up, said thank you, and left a tip.
"Why the tip and thank you?" wondered another customer.
The bartender responded, “Because the man had the hiccups.”

I'm a Fool to Want You
Sinatra, Jack Wolf, and Joel Herron, 1951
I'm a fool to want you
I'm a fool to want you
To want a love that can't be true
A love that's there for others too
I'm a fool to hold you
Such a fool to hold you
To seek a kiss not mine alone
To share a kiss that Devil has known
Time and time again I said I'd leave you
Time and time again I went away
But then would come the time when I would need you
And once again these words I had to say
Take me back, I love you
Pity me, I need you
I know it's wrong, it must be wrong
But right or wrong I can't get along
