It doesn't sound like a native Spanish speaker for me, but in standard Spanish I think it should say:
Sí, me enamoré de él, pero bueno, es lo que me pasa por buscarle la cuarta pata al gato.
(Yes, I fell in love with him, but well, that's what happens to me for getting into complicated matters)
The usual saying in Spanish is "buscarle tres pies/patas al gato" or "buscarle cinco pies/patas al gato" though.
Ain't it wonderful to be alive when the Rock'n'Roll plays...

Me parece muy probable que la "u" debería ser "y". ("Sí, y me enamoré...")
