Single version: The Pointer Sisters: fairytale


The Pointer Sisters' original version was awarded a Grammy in the category Best Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. The number first appeared on their LP, "That's A Plenty," (Blue Thumb Records, BTS 6009), released in February 1974, before being issued as a single in September 1974 on Blue Thumb BTA 254.
The Pointer Sisters began in 1969 as a duo, consisting of real-life sisters June and Bonnie Pointer. At the time of the recording of "Fairytale," the group had expanded to four members, June and Bonnie, together with two more sisters, Anita, and Ruth. Anita and Bonnie Pointer wrote "Fairytale" and the number attracted so much interest that the Pinter Sisters were invited to Nashville, where they became the first black female singers to appear at the Grand Ole Opry.

I'll pack up all my things and walk away
I don't want to hear another word you have to say
I've been waiting for so long,
(so long)
I just found out there's something wrong,
(something is wrong)
nothing will get better if I stay

There's no need to explain anymore
I tried my best to love you,
now I'm walkin' out the door
(out the door)
You used me, you've deceived me,
and you never seem to need me
but I'll bet, you won't forget me when I go
(Oh no, no, no)

Seems I've been lost in a dream,
pretending that you care
and now I've opened up my eyes,
and found it's all been just a great big fairytale

I've been lovin' you so long,
(my love's so strong)
don't think I'll even know how to forget you
(I can't forget you)
but now the way that things have been,
I think I'm better off alone,
than to be with you

You don't love me it's plain to see

There's no need to explain anymore
I tried my best to love you,
now I'm walkin' out the door
(walking out the door)
ahh, you used me, you've deceived me,
(what you trying to do to me?)
and you never seem to need me
But I'll bet you won't forget me when I go

(Oh no, no, no)

Seems I've been lost in a dream,
pretending you were mine
someday you'll open up your eyes
and realize that a good woman's hard to find

Yes I've been lost in a dream
pretending that you care
and now I've opened up my eyes
and found it's all been just a great big fairytale

Someday you'll open up your eyes
And realize that a good man's hard to find
