Get
a job save, your money listen, to Jane Everybody
knows umbrellas cost more in the rain And
all the news is bad Is
there any other kind And?
everybody’s talking at the same time Well
everybody’s, talking at the same time Well

it’s, hard times for some for, others it’s sweet Someone
makes money when there’s blood in the street Don’t
take any lip Stay
in line Everybody’s
talking at the same time Well

the, dog is in the kitchen and the war drags on The
trees wait by the freeway All
the money is all gone Well
she, told me she would leave me I
ignored all the signs And
now everybody’s talking at the same time Everybody’s
talking at the same time Well

ain’t, no one coming to pull you from the mud You
gotta build your nest high enough to ride out the flood I
know you’re leaving and there’s no more next time Everybody’s
talking at the same time A

tiny boy sat and he played in the sand He
made a sword from a stick and a gun from his hand Well
we, bailed out all the millionaires They’ve
got the fruit We’ve
got the rind And
everybody’s talking at the same time And
everybody’s talking at the same time
