ORDINARY FOOL (Paul Williams (m & l) 1975) Released by the Carpenters October 1983 < Voice Of The Heart > . (originally recorded in 1976). Only a fool Like fools before me I always think with my heart. Only a fool That same old story Seems I was born for the part. It's a lesson to be learned And a page I should have turned. I shouldn't cry but I do. Like an ordinary fool, When his ordinary dreams fall through. How many times Have I mistaken Good looks and laughs for bad news? And how many times Have I mistaken Good looks and laughs for the blues? When a road I walked before Ends alone at my front door I shouldn't cry but I do Like an ordinary fool When his ordinary dreams fall through. (tenor sax bridge) When a road I walked before Ends alone at my front door I shouldn't cry but I do. Like an ordinary fool When his ordinary dreams fall through. NOTES: Written for the 1976 film Bugsy Malone Director: Alan Parker Leads: Jodie Foster / Florrie Dugger / Scott Baio The Carpenters were a talented brother/sister singer/songwriting duo hailing from Los Angeles CA USA. As of 2013, they had sold more than 100 million units (source BBC). Sadly, the duo's career ended prematurely with the death of Karen Carpenter in 1983. She was 32 years old. The Grammy Hall Of Fame recognized the Carpenters as providing music of 'lasting qualitative or history significance' (older than 25 years) by honouring them with their prestigious award. The album on which this song/lyric appears < Voice Of The Heart >, was released after Karen's death, compiled by her brother Richard and contained previously unreleased tracks. < Ordinary Fool > was also released as the 'B' side of a single 45 rpm vinyl disc. The 'A' side was < Now > . (Transcribed by David Story - February 2014)
