EVERYBODY

           Daddy was a sailor, fought in the war
           When I was born he was far from shore
           And when he got back he was seldom home
           Mamma raised three kids alone
           Did her best to teach us right from wrong
           An' she got along best with daddy when he was gone

                    Everybody's happy, everybody's sad
                    Everybody feels sorry, everyone get's mad
                    Everybody's hungry, everybody's blind
                    An' we all need help to find our way sometimes
                    And like anybody, I need love

           Now I'm grown, got a family of my own
           Done my best to make our house a home
           And I still don't know what I ever did
           Like daddy, you left for someone new
           You say you love her, I doubt you do
           But no doubt she means more to you than our kids

                    Everybody's lonely, everyone feels bad
                    Every heart's been broken, everybody's been had

           Like a boat without a rudder tossed in a dark stormy sea
           I've spent my whole life waiting for a sailor to come and rescue me

                    Everybody's happy, everybody's sad
                    Everybody feels sorry, everyone get's mad
                    Everybody's hungry, everybody's blind
                    An' we all need help to find our way sometimes
                    And like anybody, I need love
                    Like anybody, I need love
