"Everyone I Know" (karaoke)

"Everyone I Know" (sheet music)


Everyone I know is feeling the pinch

Of these straightened days:

Small change is counted on Tuesday;

By Wednesday, we're always broke.

Every week it seems they cut

One more inch off our living wage:

Paring us down for the new age;

Squeezing us until we choke.

 

Everyone I know, everyone I know,

Everyone I know, everyone I know.

 

Everyone I know is warming

Their dreams on a dying flame

Out on an ocean of self-blame

Where big fish get let off the hook.

All the news I read says

This is my great opportunity

Here in the new clever country

Where some touch and others just look.

 

Everyone I know, everyone I know,

Everyone I know, everyone I know.

 

Everyone I know is worried

If they'll be the next for the chop;

Every day the line is just

A little bit shorter at the bus stop.

 

Everyone I know is paying

The price for the lunacy

Of setting the corporate dogs free

Into the big picture book.

Everyone I know is looking for*

Someone to vote for,*

Turning away from the class war,*

Forgetting the world ever shook.

 

Everyone I know, everyone I know,

Everyone I know, everyone I know.

 

Everyone I know is worried

If they'll be the next for the chop;

Every day the line is just

A little bit shorter at the bus stop.

 

Everyone I know is feeling the pinch

Of these straightened days:

Small change is counted on Tuesday;

By Wednesday, we're always broke.

Every week it seems they cut

One more inch off our living wage:

Paring us down for the new age;

Squeezing us until we choke.

 

Everyone I know, everyone I know,

Everyone I know, everyone I know.

 

Everyone I know, everyone I know,

Everyone I know, everyone I know.

 

[Alternative Lyrics:

*Everyone I know is painting

*In detail, the rope slack,

*Turning away from the fight back,]
