Aretha Franklin and Mariah Carey – Chain of Fools


Aretha Franklin and Mariah Carey – Chain of Fools – Live at VH1 Divas Live, 1998.

Mariah really showed respect and displayed humility here. She waited for her turn at the phrases. You can clearly see that Aretha was her idol.

Divas Live 1998 was overshadowed by the finale performance of all the divas but this duet by two legendary voices ever albeit without rehearsal was unforgettable and should be given enough credits!

Lyrics:
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

For five long years
I thought you were my man
But I found out
I’m just a link in your chain
Oh, you got me where you want me
I ain’t nothin’ but your fool
You treated me mean
Oh, you treated me cruel

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

Every chain
Has got a weak link
I might be weak, yeah
But I’ll give you strength
Oh, hey
You told me to leave you alone
My father said, “Come on home”
My doctor said, “Take it easy”
Oh, but your lovin’ is much too strong

I’m added to your chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

One of these mornings
The chain is gonna break
But up until the day
I’m gonna take all I can take, oh hey

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Your chain of fools

Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain (Oh)
Chain, chain, chain
Your chain of fools, oh yeah
