Everybody says don't
Everybody says don't
Everybody says don't it isn't right
Don't is isn't nice

Everybody says don't
Everybody says don't
Everybody says don't walk on the grass
Don't disturb the peace, don't skate on the ice

Well I say do, I say
Walk on the grass it was meant to feel
I say sail till to the windmill
And if you fail you fail

Everybody says don't
Everybody says don't
Everybody says don't get out of line
When they say that then lady that's a sign
No times out of ten
Lady you are doing just fine

Make just a ripple come on be brave
This time a ripple next time a wave
Sometimes you have to start small
Climbing the tiniest wall
Maybe you're going to fall
But it is better than not starting at all

Everybody says no stop
Mustn't rock the boat, mustn't touch a thing
Everybody says don't
Everybody says wait
Everybody says can't fight city-hall
Can't upset the court
Can't laugh at the king

Well I say try
I say
Laugh at the king or he'll make you cry
Loose your poise
Fall if you have to but lady make a noise
Yes

Everybody says don't
Everybody says can't
Everybody says wait around for miracles
That's the way the world is made
I insist on miracles if you do them
Miracles might come true
Then I say don't
Don't be afraid
