Everybody Loves Me

Everybody must be on drugs in this town .
Or maybe there's a strange new bug that been goin'round .
'Cos people all smile and wavin' as I go by .
Everybody loves me  . . . . but I don't know why .

It used to be a kind face was a rarity
but now I got friends comin' out both ends just to visit me
Now it don't make sense 'cos my confidence has been destroyed
Everybody loves me  . . . .  or am I paranoid ?

Whatever happened to the cold cruel world I used to understand
when every road was paved with wet cement ?
Oooh , you remember . . .
back when if I was hanging off a cliff you'd be walkin' on my hands
Won't somebody please tell me where all the good times went ? !

Everytime I needed something no one ever gave me nothin' -
it'd never fail .
I'd have to sit right down and write myself a letter
just to get mail .
But now my ears are ringin'
with the damn ding-a-lingin' of the telephone
Everybody loves me but I'm comin' home !

Whatever happened to the cold cruel world I used to understand
when every road was paved with wet cement ?
Oooh , you remember . . .
back when if I was hanging off a cliff you'd be walkin' on my hands
Won't somebody please tell me where all the good times went ? !
