TRUTH !!
Neil Sedaka named this song for the songwriter Carole King. They went to
Abraham Lincoln High in Brooklyn, New York along with Neil Diamond. Carol
(as her birth name of Carol Klein, before she picked the stage-surname of
"King") first came into Neil Sedaka's life as a member of the Linc-Tones,
the first group that Sedaka hustled together out of high school. Despite
what impression Neil might have left, they did not date.
