Everybody Knows
Everybody Knows --- Concrete Blonde

***********************************



Everybody knows the dice are loaded

Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed

Everybody knows that the war is over

Everybody knows that the good guys lost

Everybody knows that the fight is fixed

The poor stay poor and the rich get rich

That's how it goes



Everybody knows the boat is sinking

Everybody knows that the captain lied

Everybody's got this broken feeling

Like their momma or their dog just died

Everybody's hands are in their pockets

Everybody wants a box of chocolates

And a long stem rose

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

That's how it goes

And everybody knows

(repeat)



Everybody knows that it's now or never

Everybody knows that it's me or you

Everybody knows that you live forever

When ya had a line or two

Everybody knows the deal is rotten

Old black Joe still pickin' cotten

For your ribbons and bows



Everybody knows you love me baby

Everybody knows that you really do

Everybody knows that you've been faithful

Give or take a night or two

Everybody knows you've been descreet

So many people you had to meet

Without your clothes

And everybody knows

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

That's the way it goes

Everybody knows

(repeat until end)
