“Everybody Knows” Lyrics

Too much to drink, not enough thinkin’
Soon, we’re runnin’ through the back room bare
I stubbed my toe on a bucket full of snow
But you’re wonderin’ how much I could possibly care

I found myself in a honky tonk
Naked from my head down to my toes
Winkin’ at some stranger while her boyfriend’s gettin’ angry
He says, “Never trust a man with no clothes”

’Cause everybody knows
Everybody knows
Everybody, everybody knows
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
Everybody, everybody knows

Everybody knows it’s really not the clothes that make the man
It’s the man that make the clothes
Nobody has to tell you what to think, what to say, how to act
I think everybody knows

Everybody knows each opinion they hold
Isn’t one that they made up on their own
So let’s all get together
Take a good look at this water
See if we can tell the soup from the bone

’Cause everybody knows
Soup from the bone
Everybody, everybody knows
Everybody knows
Soup from the bone
Everybody, everybody knows

[break]

Everybody knows
Soup from the bone
Everybody, everybody knows
Everybody knows
Soup from the bone
Everybody, everybody knows

Everybody knows, you see it on the TV
It’s just another shepherd for the sheep
Sex stars, rock stars, lyin’ politicians are
All making promises they never mean to keep

And everybody knows every word they say
’Cause we’ve heard it all before
So let’s all get together
Tell those mother fella bastards
That we ain’t gonna take it no more

’Cause everybody knows
Soup from the bone
Everybody, everybody knows
Everybody knows
Soup from the bone
Everybody, everybody knows

Everybody knows
Soup from the bone
Everybody, everybody knows
Everybody knows
Soup from the bone
Everybody, everybody knows
