Original video
You've got diamonds and I've got spades
You've got pills
And I've got razor blades
You've got yoga honey
I've got beer
You got overpriced
And I got weird

But it's all right
We're the same even though we're alone
It's all right
Yes we all need a room of our own

You've got love darlin'
I've got sex
You've got cash, mama
And I've got checks
You've got business, baby
I've got the kids
You got crowded just the way I did

But it's all right
'Cause we all need a place to call home
It's all right
Yes we all need a room of our own

I can still remember packed together
Like a can of sardines
No, no, no
Pushin', shovin'
That's when lovin'
Starts to come apart at the seams
Oh no, no, no, no

You've got the day shift
I've got nights
We go wrong at times
But we've got rights
You've got TV shows
I've got crime
But you've got your room, honey
And I've got mine

It's all right
It's the one thing that we should have known
Yes, it's all right
Yes, we all need a room of our own

And it's all right
Yes we all need a place to call home
It's all right
Yes we all need a room of our own
It's all right
It's all right
To have a room of your own
No, no, no, it's all right
Yeah it's all right mama
To have a room of our own
Sometimes you've got to get away

Got to get away
Got to get away
Got to get away to a room of our own
Got to have a room
Got to have a little elbow room of my own.
