EVERYBODY GOT A HOLE IN THEIR HEAD BUT ME
EVERYBODY GOT A HOLE IN THEIR HEAD BUT ME

ANOTHER DAY ON THE WAY TO WORK
ANTS A-CRAWLING UP THE DIRT
MAKING MONEY TO PAY THE BILLS
KING OF THAT ANT HILL ONE DAY TO BE
EVERYBODY GOT A HOLE IN THEIR HEAD BUT ME

EVERYBODY GOT THEIR HEAD IN THEIR HANDS BUT ME
EVERYBODY GOT THEIR HEAD IN THEIR HANDS BUT ME

FACING TROUBLE WITH A DOUBLE “OO---“
OUT FOR SOMETHING THEY CAN NEVER USE
TUMBLE OVER AN EMBANKMENT WALL
AND THE FOLLOW TO THE SIDE TO SEE WHO BLEEDS
EVERYBODY GOT THEIR HEAD IN THEIR HANDS BUT ME

        HOW LONG TILL WE GET TO OYSTER BAY, BABY?
        YOU CAN LET YOUR HAIR DOWN AND BREATHE
        WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY, YOU DON’T WANT ME IN YOUR LIFE?
        I’M PUSHING THE PEDDLE DOWN TO NINETY-FIVE
EVERYBODY GOT A ROCK FOR A HEART BUT ME
EVERYBODY GOT A ROCK FOR A HEART BUT ME

I’D HAVE SWORN THAT I FOUND TRUE LOVE
WITH THE WONDER OF A MORNING DOVE
BUT THE ROAD TOOK A DEAD STOP TURN
ONCE AGAIN I LEARNED NOTHING’S WHAT IT SEEMS
EVERYBODY GOT A ROCK FOR A HEART BUT ME

       HOW LONG TILL WE GET TO OYSTER BAY, BABY?
       THIS TIME I’LL LET YOU HOLD THE WHEEL
       WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY, YOU DON’T WANT ME BY YOUR SIDE?
       I’M PUSHING THE PEDDLE DOWN TO NINETY-FIVE

       HOW LONG TILL WE GET TO OYSTER BAY, BABY?
       YOU CAN LET YOUR HAIR DOWN AND BREATHE
       WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY, YOU DON’T WANT ME IN YOUR LIFE?
       I’M PUSHING THE PEDDLE DOWN TO NINETY-FIVE
       I’M PUSHING THE PEDDLE DOWN TO NINETY-FIVE
       AND I DON’T CARE IF I LIVE OR DIE

EVERYBODY GOT A HOLE IN THEIR HEAD BUT ME
EVERYBODY GOT A HOLE IN THEIR HEAD BUT ME
EVERYBODY GOT A HOLE IN THEIR HEAD BUT ME
EVERYBODY GOT A HOLE IN THEIR HEAD BUT ME
