  • Oh! Carol, I am but a fool,
    Darling I love you tho' you treat me cruel,
    You hurt me and you made me cry
    But if you leave me I will surely die.
    Darling there will never be another
    Cause I love you so,
    Don't ever leave me,
    Say you'll never go
    I will always want you for my sweetheart
    No matter what you do
    Oh! Carol, I'm so in love with you.
    Oh, Carol...
    Darling.. Writer/s: HOWARD GREENFIELD, NEIL SEDAKA

  • David Roadman from Hyannis, MasdachusettsPlease Have Carole Klein King induct Neil Sedaka into the Rock n Roll Hall of fame before they pass away!
  • David Roadman from Hyannis, MaPlease, Carole Klein King must induct Neil Sedaka into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame,!
  • Jackson Firestone from United States7/28/2020: OK, let’s set the record straight (pun intended), once and for all: Neil Sedaka wrote the MUSIC to “OH CAROL”, but the LYRICS were written by HOWARD GREENFIELD... My mother’s younger brother — my Uncle Howie Greenfield. Unk Howie had told me — on several occasions — that the ‘Carol’ referred to in “OH CAROL” was my mother — Howie’s older sister — my mother — Carol Greenfield. JF
  • Dwight from Virginia Beach, VaI stand corrected, Carole King was born Carol Klein ... thus Oh Carol ... I should've researched that first !!!
  • Dwight from Virginia Beach, Va... I accept the premise that Neil wrote the song for Carole King. If he did, why wasn't the song named Oh Carole ???
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumCarole King and Neil Sedaka going together to school and falling in love. A very good song.
  • Alf from Kingston, CanadaMy sister had the album with all these songs on it, the RCA label with the puppy looking in the horn on the phonograph. when I was about 4 I thought it was a female singing, lol & wondered why a woman would be singing Oh Carol! Neil Sedaka's stuff is awesome! The song Sweet Little You has a similar piano part as Ernie K Doe's Mother In Law song. I'm not sure who wrote or who recorded it 1st but Ernie K Doe's song entered Billboard on March 27, 1961 & Neil's Sweet Little You entered Billboard on August 28, 1961.
  • Chinchu from Guayaquil, South AmericaThis was one of the first "product" songs, you know, a song that was written to hit the charts. Sedaka analyzed hit songs of that time and united them in this hit...
  • Darrell from Eugene, United StatesI wrote a version of this about myself in 1983, and I stopped singing it because everyone thought that I was a narcissist, extremely vain and/or in love with myself. Therefore, nary a copy of "Oh Darrell" still exists, the last having been burned in my wood stove in 1991.
  • Eva from Brisbane, AustraliaThe song "Oh Carol" is a very beautiful song, it is very romantic. Neil Sedaka rocks!

  • Sanjaya from Kathmandu, IndiaDEAR SIR SEDAKA !
    I AM A POP SINGER IN NEPAL AND I LIKE THE SONG "OH CAROL" VERY MUCH.
    I MADE A NEPALI REMIX OF "OH CAROL".
    I WOULD BE HIGHLY THANKFUL IF YOU WOULD SUGGEST AND GIVE ME FORMAL AUTHORIZATION THROUGH E-MAIL SO THAT I MAY RELEASE THE NEPALI REMIX "OH CAROL".

    SINCERELY
