How I'd like to look into that little book
The one that has the lock and key
And know the boy that you care for
The boy who's in your diary
When it's late at night
what is the name you write?
Ohwhat I'd give if I could see
Am I the boy that you care for?
The boy who's in your diary
Do you recall and make note of all
The little things I say and do?
The name you underline I'm hoping that it's mine
Darling I'm so in love with you-oo
Please don't leave me blue
make all my dreams come true
You know how much you mean to me
Say I'm the boy that you care for
The boy who's in your di-a-ry

Neil  Sedaka nasceu no Brooklyn, NY, em 1939, neto de imigrantes turcos e russo-poloneses. Desde cedo demonstrou pendor para a música e já na high scholl formou um grupo vocal, the Tokens.  
Depois de várias tentativas que não se mostraram tão promissoras, ainda muito jovem, Sedaka comprou três discos com as músicas de maior sucesso no momento, estudou-as com afinco e descobriu que tinham características semelhantes. Dentro desse raciocínio decidiu compor uma canção que incorporasse esses elementos e compôs "Oh! Carol" com Howard Greenfield, que se tornou um sucesso em 1959.
