Everybody knowin,' people always smilin,'
Everybody goin,' people always tryin,'
Everybody sunnin,' people always runnin,'
Everybody stonin,' people always moanin'...

Everybody knowin,' people always smilin,'
Everybody goin,' people always tryin,'
Everybody sunnin,' people always runnin,'
Everybody stonin,' people always moanin'...

The windowpanes, slow-movin trains
are watchin' time tick slowly by.
I don't ask why, I don't ask why,
I don't ask why, don't ask why
or how they're tryin' to get by...
I don't ask why, I don't ask why.

I made a cat out of wasps and newspaper.
I'll make a note about rummagin' later.
Agents of despair are sitting in their under--
Where have you been?--It is way past your bedtime.

I don't wanna walk away to a place I don't wanna stay...
I don't wanna walk away to a place I don't wanna stay... (Stay...)

The windowpanes, slow-movin trains
are watchin' time tick slowly by.
I don't ask why, I don't ask why,
I don't ask why, don't ask why
or how they're tryin' to get by...
I don't ask why, I don't ask why.

Everybody knowin,' people always smilin,'
Everybody goin,' people always tryin,'
Everybody sunnin,' people always runnin,'
Everybody stonin,' people always moanin'...

Everybody knowin,' people always smilin,'
Everybody goin,' people always tryin,'
Everybody sunnin,' people always runnin,'
Everybody stonin,' people always moanin'...

(Where did you leave your raindrop paintcoat today?)

Everybody knowin,' people always smilin,'
Everybody goin,' people always tryin,'
Everybody sunnin,' people always runnin,'
Everybody stonin,' people always moanin'...

(I dipped in the sun for another long day...) (Day...)

Everybody knowin,' people always smilin,'
Everybody goin,' people always tryin,'
Everybody sunnin,' people always runnin,'
Everybody stonin,' people always moanin'...

(Don't wanna walk away to a place I don't wanna stay...)

Everybody knowin,' people always smilin,'
Everybody goin,' people always tryin,'
Everybody sunnin,' people always runnin,'
Everybody stonin,' people always moanin'...

(Don't wanna walk away to a place I don't wanna stay...) (Stay...)

Everybody knowin,' people always smilin,'
Everybody goin,' people always tryin,'
Everybody sunnin,' people always runnin,'
Everybody stonin,' people always moanin'...

I made a cat out of wasps and newspaper.
I'll make a note about rummagin' later.
Agents of despair are sitting in their under--
Where have you been?--It is way past your bedtime.
