Leonard Cohen Everybody Knows Lyrics

Songwriters: COHEN, LEONARD / ROBINSON, SHARON
Everybody knows that the dice are loaded 
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed 
Everybody knows that the war is over 
Everybody knows the good guys lost 
Everybody knows the fight was fixed 
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich 
That’s how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking 
Everybody knows that the captain lied 
Everybody got this broken feeling 
Like their father or their dog just died 

Everybody talking to their pockets 
Everybody wants a box of chocolates 
And a long stem rose 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows that you love me baby 
Everybody knows that you really do 
Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful 
Ah give or take a night or two 
Everybody knows you’ve been discreet 
But there were so many people you just had to meet 
Without your clothes 
And everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That’s how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That’s how it goes 
Everybody knows 

And everybody knows that it’s now or never 
Everybody knows that it’s me or you 
And everybody knows that you live forever 
Ah when you’ve done a line or two 
Everybody knows the deal is rotten 
Old black joe’s still pickin’ cotton 
For your ribbons and bows 
And everybody knows 

And everybody knows that the plague is coming 
Everybody knows that it’s moving fast 
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman 
Are just a shining artifact of the past 
Everybody knows the scene is dead 
But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed 
That will disclose 
What everybody knows 

And everybody knows that you’re in trouble 
Everybody knows what you’ve been through 
From the bloody cross on top of calvary 
To the beach of malibu 
Everybody knows it’s coming apart 
Take one last look at this sacred heart 
Before it blows 
And everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That’s how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows 
That’s how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows

Everybody Knows lyrics

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes Everybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose Everybody knows
Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you’ve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes Everybody knows
Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes Everybody knows
And everybody knows that it’s now or never
Everybody knows that it’s me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you’ve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe‘s still pickin’ cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it’s moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose What everybody knows

And everybody knows that you’re in trouble
Everybody knows what you’ve been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu

Everybody knows it’s coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes Everybody knows
Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes Everybody knows
