"Nobody's Fool" is the second single and power ballad by Glam metal band Cinderella. The song was recorded on the band's first album, Night Songs, and was released in 1986. Nobody's Fool charted at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100, and also charted at number 25 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks in 1987.[1] The song was Cinderella's second best-selling single, surpassed only by 1988's "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)".[citation needed]

The music video continues the storyline from where the "Shake Me" video leaves off, following the Cinderella-like girl as she accompanies the band to their rehearsal space, with the wicked sisters in pursuit. As the band performs the song, the girl runs home for the stroke of midnight when her rocker outfit changes back to a plain dress. She later meets the band again for an autograph, and the video ends as a glint of recognition passes across Tom Keifer's face.
