Father stop criticizing your son
Mother please leave your daughters alone
Don't you see that's what wrong
With the world with world today

Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay
Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay

We all talked about Candice
But it's only, only a word, truly
Brother turned on a sister in this cruel, cruel world
That's what's wrong with all in this world today

Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay
Oh, everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay

Somebody to play with
Wanna to mold you, mold you
Shake your love baby
Wanna to do their thing

Children are told
To give and not just to take
If we were all children
You know the world will be a better place

Oh, everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay

We should all love each other
Love and take one another
We should love each other
Love and not hate, oh

Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay
Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay

Truly everybody wants somebody
To mold them, shape them own way
Everybody wants somebody
Try to make it or, do their, do their thing

Everybody wants to take somebody
Got to make it, make it do their thing
Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay, yeah

Somebody, somebody
Own piece of clay

Somebody, somebody
Somebody, somebody, somebody
Somebody, somebody
Somebody, somebody, somebody
