That's What They All Say - Graham Parker

    You think you've got a head for heights Be careful, babe, you might fall
    You think you know all your rights But you're at someone's beck and call
    You think you've got life on a plate But it's harder to eat than to play

    You're in the race You've got a place But that's what they all say

    You wanna stand in the working man's shoes 
    And have someone step on your head
    You wanna bruise your skin on my teeth 
    But you just bite me instead
    You wanna come down and check out my level 
    But something stands in your way


    Standing in the rain You pass by, don't even remember my name
    But baby, baby, this ain't no place for fame
    And it ain't the street, it's the gutter you've got to blame

    Well, you think you are a real rough diamond
    'Cause you can stand to the test
    You think if you got a car to climb in You will shine out the best
    You think your jewels aren't made out of paste 
    Believe me they're looking that way

    [Repeat Chorus]

    [Repeat Bridge]

    You think if you got a hall of mirrors You will see every way
    You think if you buy a piece of tomorrow Someone else has to pay
    You think if you can pin someone down They won't get in your way

    [Repeat Chorus Twice] 

    That's what they all say, baby   That's what they all say
