As recorded by NEIL SEDAKA: There was a man, a lonely man Who lost his love through his indifference A heart that cared, that went unshared Until it died within his silence And solitaire's the only game in town And every road that takes him, takes him down While life goes on around him everywhere He's playing solitaire And keeping to himself, begins to deal And still the king of hearts is well concealed Another losing game comes to an end And he deals them out again A little hope goes up in smoke Just how it goes, goes without saying There was a man, a lonely man Who would command the hand he's playing And solitaire's the only game in town And every road that takes him, takes him down While life goes on around him everywhere He's playing solitaire And keeping to himself, begins to deal And still the king of hearts is well concealed Another losing game comes to an end And he deals them out again And solitaire's the only game in town And every road that takes him, takes him down While life goes on around him everywhere He's playing solitaire ******************** As recorded by THE CARPENTERS: There was a man, a lonely man Who lost his love through his indifference A heart that cared, that went unshared Until it died within his silence And solitaire's the only game in town And every road that takes him, takes him down And by himself it's easy to pretend He'll never love again And keeping to himself, he plays the game Without her love it always ends the same While life goes on around him everywhere He's playing solitaire A little hope goes up in smoke Just how it goes, goes without saying There was a man, a lonely man Who would command the hand he's playing And solitaire's the only game in town And every road that takes him, takes him down And by himself it's easy to pretend He'll never love again And keeping to himself he plays the game Without her love, it always ends the same While life goes on around him everywhere He's playing solitaire And solitaire's the only game in town And every road that takes him, takes him down While life goes on around him everywhere He's playing solitaire ******************** As recorded by NANA MOUSKOURI (French version: Pierre Delanoë / Claude Lemesle) C'était un homme aux yeux de nuit Au cœur perdu par trop d'indifférence Qui entre lui et ses amis Avait construit un rempart de silence Le solitaire portait bien son nom Toutes ses rues menaient à des prisons Il habitait seul avec ses secrets L'impasse des regrets Il était juste au bord de la folie Le compagnon de la mélancolie Parmi les vents qui font tourner la terre Il restait solitaire C'était un homme de nulle part Dont la mémoire n'avait pas d'horizon Le solitaire portait bien son nom Toutes ses rues menaient à des prisons Il habitait seul avec ses secrets L'impasse des regrets Il était juste au bord de la folie Le compagnon de la mélancolie Parmi les vents qui font tourner la terre Il restait solitaire Il restait solitaire ******************** (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2015)
