I Woke up this morning, just like every man does
Walked to the bathroom, just like every man does
Made my bed, just like everyone must
Nursed my head just like everyone must

Spent the day playing Nina Simone
Reorganized every record I own
I see my friends, we drink beer in a can
Half-drunk they smile, « It’ll be alright, man »

Just like a king, who’s losing his worth
I’m like a snob, who’s falling to earth.
Everyone thinks that I’m staying the same
Are they secretly happy that I am in pain?

So you say it’s ordinary, love?
That’s impossible to do
No such thing as ordinary, love.
I was ordinary just to you.

Does it mean that I’m a regular man
Not as special as I think that I am
As for you, all that I want to know
Did you stay up as I tumbled so low?

Just like a king, who’s losing his worth
I’m like the sun, that’s fallen to earth.
Everyone thinks that I’m staying the same
Are they secretly happy that I am in pain?

So you say it’s ordinary, love?
That’s impossible to do.
No such thing as ordinary, love.
I was ordinary just to you.

So you say it’s ordinary, love?
That’s impossible to do.
No such thing as ordinary, love.
I was ordinary just to you.

If I was ordinary
And love was ordinary
If I was ordinary
Oh so very ordinary
If love was ordinary
And I was ordinary
Are you too?
