Everyday People

Joan Jett & the BlackheartsBuy this song

Sometimes I'm right then I can be wrong 
My own beliefs are in my songs 
A butcher, a banker, a drummer and then
 Makes no difference what group I'm in
I am everyday people

Then it's the blue ones who can't accept 
The green ones for living with
The black ones tryin' to be a skinny one
 Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby dooby 

We gotta live together 

I am no better and neither are you
We're all the same whatever we do
You love me, you hate me
You know me and then
 Still can't figure out the scene I'm in
I am everyday people

Then it's the new man
That doesn't like the short man
For being such a rich one
That will not help the poor one
 Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on scooby dooby dooby 

We got to live together 

 There is a yellow one that won't
 Accept the black one
That wont accept the red one
That wont accept the white one

 Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and
 Scooby dooby dooby 
I am everyday people
