I got your number right off the wallBristol 285 wont you give me a callWell I was 15 thought I was hotI didn’t know if you’d see me or notAnd that night as we stepped outWe were hand in handBut my friends all seemed to know youI couldn’t understandThat everybody knew, everybody knew, they knew your nameBut nobody wants nobody wants to play your gameYou seemed so shy so all alone-yWithout any hint of ever being phonyBut then the little things that came to lightLike the strange hours you worked late at nightAnd as we laid in your bed that nightYou made me feel like a kingThen as I looked into your eyesI heard that telephone ringAnd everybody knows, everybody knows, they know your nameBut nobody wants, nobody wants, to play your gameOh no, they don’t want to know your game again(instrumental)And everybody knows, everybody knows, they know your nameNobody wants, nobody wants, to play your gameAnd everybody knew, everybody knew, they knew your nameBut nobody wants nobody wants to play your game(instrumental to the end...)
