Everybody knows
Does everybody know, does everybody know,
Does everybody know

I'm the town crier
And everybody knows
I'm a little down
With a lifetime ago
Maybe you don't believe my heart is in the right place
Why don't you take a good look at my face
Other boys use the splendour of their trembling lip
They're so teddy bear tender and tragically hip

I'm a never gonna cry again
I'm a gonna be as strong as them
They say they'd die for love
And then they live it out
They'll give me something to cry about
Suddenly you really fall to pieces

I'm the town crier
And everybody knows
I'm a little down
With your lifetime ago
Maybe you don't believe my heart is in the right place
Why don't you take a good look at my face
And other boys use the splendour of their trembling lips
They're so teddy bear tender and tragically hip

Love and unhappiness go arm in arm
Long suffering friends of your fatal charm
Living for the pity that you're gonna get hurt
Just a little boy lost in a big man's shirt
Suddenly you really fall to pieces
Fall to pieces

I'm the town crier
And everybody knows
I'm a little down
With a lifetime to go
Maybe you don't believe my heart is in the right place
Why don't you take a good look at my face
And other boys use the splendour of their trembling lip
They're so teddy bear tender and tragically hip
