I've took, and I take more than one man need
A poor boy caught me in the act of my greed
I cut up my lies and laid 'em 'neath the floor
but I hear the bumpin' from behind the door.

Chorus:
Everybody knows, everybody knows
I'm the mad man with the tell-tale heart
Everybody knows, everybody knows
I'm gonna tear myself apart
You know it's driving me mad (everybody knows)
You know it's driving me mad (everybody knows)
You know it's driving me mad (everybody knows)
You know it's driving me mad (everybody knows)
You know it's driving me mad.

Well I did it so slow, I did it so sly
Even the holy ghost will have to testify
But it's beating so loud, that they don't know too soon
I did the deed with my silver spoon

Chorus

Neighbors call to see if all is well
Someone keeps knocking and a'ringing my bell
They got vulture eyes
They judge what they see
It's what i call a crime in the first degree
Can't take it no more, can't take it no more
I feel that bumpin' coming from the floor

Chorus
