Ordinary People [Live][*]
- 94 Views
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 star quality 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 'Cause 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" Norman and I are changing places And I'm going to make him a star So I'm throwing away my stage suit and I'm packing away my guitar For the sake of art, I'm gonna mix with the ordinary people God, these pajamas are awful Awful! Well all I can say is, "My Norman wears them every night" Alright, no sacrifice is too great for art The things I've done for music The things I've done for art So I'll make these sacrifices and I'll take it like a star For the sake of art, I will mix with the ordinary people You'd better come to bed darling Comin', you'll never get up for work in the morning Oh, yeah I'm making observations and character simulations I'll mix with his friends and relations and he'll be a part of me He's changing places with Norman to get background for his songs I'm immortalizing his life And I'll even sleep with his wife For the sake of art I'll go to bed like the ordinary people Turn out the light Turn out the light
