Everybody Knows - Lyrics by Ufo


Lyrics

I got your number right off the wall
Bristol 285 wont you give me a call
Well i was 15 thought i was hot
I didn't know if you'd see me or not
And that night as we stepped out
We were hand in hand
But my friends all seemed to know you
I couldn't understand

That everybody knew, everybody knew, they knew your name
But nobody wants nobody wants to play your game

You seemed so shy so all alone-y
Without any hint of ever being phony
But then the little things that came to light
Like the strange hours you worked late at night
And as we laid in your bed that night
You made me feel like a king
Then as i looked into your eyes
I heard that telephone ring

And everybody knows, everybody knows, they know your name
But nobody wants, nobody wants, to play your game
Oh no, they don't want to know your game again

(instrumental)

And everybody knows, everybody knows, they know your name
Nobody wants, nobody wants, to play your game

And everybody knew, everybody knew, they knew your name
But nobody wants nobody wants to play your game

(instrumental to the end...)
