Carpenters - Ordinary Fool Lyrics


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



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
