Testo della canzone Ordinary People dei Kinks
I am the image maker. i am the magic
Maker. i can turn the most ordinary
Man in the world into a star. to prove
My point i am going to find the most
Mundane little man and turn him into
Celebrity. hmm! this looks like a
Suitably uninteresting house. i wonder
If there’s anybody here with enough
He presses the doorbell.
Hello. what’s your name?
Oh, that’s a nice name. what’s your
His name’s norman. that sounds
Ordinary enough. i would like you to
Join in a unique experiment with me.
I am going to take norman’s place for
A few days. i ‘m going to research his
Ordinary dull little existence.
Oh you can’t come in now! the place
Is in a terrible mess!
That doesn’t matter. i want you to act
Normally. i want you to treat me as if i
Were norman. i am going to sacrifice
My normal flamboyant life style and
Become ordinary, boring little norman
For a few days.
It’s like another world, being here with you,
It’s quite a trip for me, so this is reality.
I’m studying every movement, i’m trying to learn the part,
Now i want you to be natural, just relax and be as you are,
‘cos it’s all for art, i want to observe the ordinary people
Tomorrow i shall become norman,
I shall go to his office,
Mix with his workmates.
And if they ask any questions
I shall say i’m doing research for one of my songs.
Nomand and i are changing places
And i’m going to make him a star,
So i’m throwing away my stage suit
