​Everybody Knows

This song is by Gilbert O'Sullivan and appears on the album The Other Sides Of Gilbert O'Sullivan (2004).

Everybody knows that the world is round
That is everybody 'cept me
'Cause I ain't been told
So why should I be forced to believe
That the feet I wear are meant to bear
Pieces of leather that shine
No that can't be true
'Cause I can't find a piece to fit mine

When I walk downtown
Dressed up like a clown
People they just burst into tears
Lift their heads and whisper in my ears
Cover up your toes 'cause everybody knows

When I walk downtown
Dressed up like a clown
People they just burst into tears
Lift their heads and whisper in my ears
Cover up your toes 'cause everybody knows

That the state we're in
Is about to begin
And if that's not enough
You try to balance a plate
While eating granny smelly's mince pie

When I walk downtown
Dressed up like a clown
People they just burst into tears
Lift their heads and whisper in my ears
Cover up your toes 'cause everybody knows
