Hi, Mike - that one's pretty obscure. It was on an album called "Simple Things," which some critics called 'the worst album of 1977. The album is out of print. I'd suggest you go to this Carole King Tribute Page and e-mail the Webmaster.

Punched it through "Music-Nut", "I-Mesh", and various Gnutellia's per-mutations...including "Morphious"....but I am coming up with a Zero....

Got the entire weekend off, first time in 24 weeks, pump the requests through...the first three I will do.

Sincerely, Gargoyle

I found lyrics for "One Fine Day" but it's about throwing away the girl, not a peace song. Can't even find a track listing for Simple Things. whooosh!

Carole King is FANTASIC!!! The CD 'Tapestry' is MUST HAVE in any record collection. The production the song writing everything is perfect with that record, of course it also has James Taylor on as well which I'm definatly not complaining about!

Cheers, Sam

I hear she is singing tonight at the Democratic convention. This can be seen on CNN and C-Span TV. I hope she sings this song...which I finally found the lyrics for.

ONE
Carole King from the 1977 album "Simple Things."

Poetic phrases come to mind
Whenever I find injustice being done.
And I wonder, what am I gonna do?
What can one do except be one,
Talking to two, touching three,
Growing to four million?
Each of us is one. All of us are one.

I go through phases when I realize
It wouldn't be wise to try and bring it down.
And I wonder, what am I gonna do?
What should one do except just be around,
Staying alive, putting out love,
Growing to five billion?
Each of us is one. All of us are one.

Open your heart and let the love come shining through,
And you will do what you need to do,
To know just where the other "you" is coming from.

He is one. She is one.
A tree is one. The earth is one. The universe is one.
I am one. We are one.

It just amazes me that I can be
Part of the energy it takes to serve each other,
And I wonder what am I gonna do?
What can one do except be one?
Each of us is one. All of us are one.
We are one.

What am I gonna do?
Be one.

I hear she is singing at the Democratic convention tonight in Boston just before John Kerry's acceptance speech. Go Carole! Go John! Go John! (Kerry and Edwards)

I have been looking for this for years...
glad to have finally found the lyrics
but now seeking tune and chords...

It's on her 1977 album 'Simple Things'
Carole King's website has lyrics to all her songs and is very detailed.
I hope this is useful

If you give me your email address, I'll send you an mp3 of the song. Don't look forward to the sound quality though. It's recorded from the LP!

Just because it's recorded from an LP, doesn't mean it;s bad ;)

You get programs that take pops/crackles out and some have hardly any surface noise; I played Clannad Past Present with no pops/crackles or surface noice at all :)

It all depends if someone has looked after the lp, from dust hair etc etc :)
