I am everyday people, yeah, yeah
I am everyday people, listen

Sometimes I'm right and I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I'm in

'Cause I am everyday people, yeah, yes
I am everyday people, yeah, yeah

There is a blue one
Who can't accept the green one
For living with a fat one
How come I got to be a skinny one
Different strokes for different folks

And so on and so on
And scooby dooby, dooby, dooby-doo
We gotta live together

I am no better and neither are you
We’re basically the same whatever we do
You love me, you hate me, you know me and then
Can't figure out what bag I'm in

'Cause I am everyday people, yeah, yes
I am everyday people, yeah, yeah

There is a long hair
That doesn't like the short hair
For bein' such a rich one
That will not help the poor one
Different strokes for different folks

And so on and so on
And scooby dooby doo-doo-doo
We gotta live together

There is a yellow one
That won't accept the black one
And won't accept the red one
And won't accept the white one

There is a long hair
That doesn't like the short hair
For bein' with a rich one
That will not help the poor one

Different strokes for different folks
We got to live together
(We gotta live together)
We got to live together
We got to live together
(No matter what color you are)

We got to live together
(We got to live together)
We got to live together
(We got to live together)

We got to live together
(Makes no difference who you are)
We got to live together

'Cause I am everyday people, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, I am everyday people
I, I, I, everyday people
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I am everyday people
I am everyday people
I am everyday people
We got to live together

I am everyday people
I am everyday people
We got to live together

Everyday people
We got to live together
Everyday people

I am everyday people
Everyday people
