Pointer Sisters – Hey You lyrics

Everybody wants the real thing
No imitations
Everybody wants the same thing
Some tender love
Everybody on the rebound
Breaking into two
Everybody going downtown
I'm reaching out to you

Gotta wonder what the score is
Sure is a shame to me
Don't you see the little children begging
But no one ever sees
In the middle of the night time
Oh I, I got to know

Hey you
Tell me what's been going on

People living in the city
Don't know their fellow man
People living in the country
Don't buy no master plan
People sent in from Erasure
To seek the promise land
Everybody wants their freedom
But do they understand

Gotta wonder what the score is
Sure is a shae to me
Don't you see the lonely people
We've been following to believe
In the middle of the night time
Oh I, I got to know

Hey you, tell me
What's been going on
This world, our world
What's been going on

Oohh, wooo, oohhh
Oohh, wooo, oohhh

[Repeat Chorus (ad-lib)]
