When you called me on the phone
I almost prayed that you'd forgive me
'Cause with everything you know
There's always something that you don't

I hadn't seen you in a while
Not since that mix-up at the rock club
I wish we coulda talked all night
But that evening took a spill
And we woke up feeling things might never be the same

Oh oh, 'cause everybody everybody everybody knows
We're the rulers of this place
We're the leaders of the new school

Yeah, everybody everybody everybody knows
We're the rulers of this place
We're the leaders of the new school
Yeah

Took the records from the den
Down to the rec room in the basement
And we did anything we want
Tore the white stripes off the wall

It didn't take me long to see
That I was just your new distraction
But when I walked you home that night
You know I kissed you anyway
And the bus route to your heart may still be on the way

Oh oh, 'cause everybody everybody everybody knows
We're the rulers of this place
We're the leaders of the new school

Yeah, everybody everybody everybody knows
We're the rulers of this place
We're the leaders of the new school
Yeah

Could've seen those nights would fade
And all the plans we made would follow
Like the pharaohs laid to rest
Or the river that runs dry

I hear you're seeing someone new
Plays guitar and writes you letters
He pretends he knows you well
But we both know that that's not true
And still some nights the stars remind me we're the same

Oh oh, 'cause everybody everybody everybody knows
We're the rulers of this place
We're the leaders of the new school

Yeah, everybody everybody everybody knows
We're the rulers of this place
We're the leaders of the new school
