Subject: Lyr Req: Humblebums' Everybody knows
From: GUEST,Franz
Date: 14 Apr 00 - 11:23 AM

I was playing my guitar when along came pieces of the Humblebums' "Everybody knows that"; I only recall a few lines like "It's rockets and missiles that are causing this bad weather" etc. and would be grateful if somebody could help me out with the rest of the song - I never understood that part after "Zsa Zsa Gabor is the world's greatest actress" anyway.

thanks,

franz

From: John Nolan

Franz: This is it from flawed memory. An Old Scotia Bar favorite. Hey, great song. Time to dust it off. I think Gerry Rafferty, rather than Billy Connolly, wrote it, but again, I could be mistaken.

EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT

It only rains when clouds bang together,
But everybody knows that.
And its rockets and missiles that are causing this bad weather,
But everybody knows that.
But does anybody know
The way that things are gonna go for them tomorrow?
What will they do when they find out
That there is no more time left to borrow?

Ms. Zsa Zsa Gabor is the world's greatest actress,
But everybody knows that.
And the sex bomb of the 50s got her first break on a mattress,
But everybody knows that.
But does anybody know
The way that things are gonna go for them tomorrow?
What will they do when they find out
That there is no more time left to borrow?

A ring with a pearl is bound to bring you tears,
But everybody knows that,
And if you break a mirror it's bad luck for seven years,
But everybody knows that.
But does anybody know
The way that things are gonna go for them tomorrow?
What will they do when they find out
That there is no more time left to borrow?

thanks everybody! John, i think the last line is something like "What will they do if they turn round and find that there is no time left to borrow?".
