Carpenters – Rainy Days And Mondays lyrics
Talkin' to myself and feeling old.

Sometimes I'd like to quit;

Nothing ever seems to fit;

Hangin' around, nothing to do but frown;

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

What I've got they used to call the blues:

Nothin' is really wrong;

Feelin' like I don't belong;

Walkin' around, some kind of lonely clown;

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny, but it seems that I always wind up-a here with you;

Nice to know somebody loves me.

Funny, but it seems that it's the only thing to do:

Run and find the one who loves me.

(*) What I feel is come and gone before:

No need to talk it out;

We know what it's all about.

Hangin' around, nothing to do but frown;

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do,

Run and find the one who loves me

Repeat (*)

Hangin' around, nothing do to but frown;

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

    On february 4, 1983, less than a month before her 33rd birthday, karen suffered heart failure at her parents' home in downey, california. She was taken to downey community hospital, where she was pronounced dead twenty minutes later. The los angeles coroner gave the cause of death as "heartbeat irregularities brought on by chemical imbalances associated with anorexia nervosa. "[15] under the anatomical summary, the first item was heart failure, with anorexia as second. The third finding was cachexia, which is extremely low weight and weakness and general body decline associated with chronic disease. Her divorce was scheduled to have been finalized that day. The autopsy stated that carpenter's death was the result of emetine cardiotoxicity due to anorexia nervosa, revealing that carpenter had poisoned herself with ipecac syrup, an emetic often used to induce vomiting in cases of overdosing or poisoning. [15] carpenter's use of ipecac syrup was later disputed by agnes and richard, who both stated that they never found empty vials of ipecac in her apartment and have denied that there was any concrete evidence that karen had been vomiting. [16] richard also expressed that he believes karen was not willing to ingest ipecac syrup because of the potential damage it presented to her vocal cords and that she relied on laxatives alone to maintain her low body weight.
    Her funeral service took place on february 8, 1983, at the downey united methodist church. Dressed in a rose colored suit, carpenter lay in an open white casket. Over 1, 000 mourners passed through to say goodbye, among them her friends dorothy hamill, olivia newton-john, petula clark, and dionne warwick. Carpenter's estranged husband tom attended her funeral, where he took off his wedding ring and threw it into the casket. [10] she was buried at the forest lawn memorial park in cypress, california. In 2003, richard carpenter had karen re-interred, along with their parents, in a carpenter family mausoleum at the pierce brothers valley oaks memorial park in westlake village, california, which is closer to his southern california home.
