Everybody Knows the Answer    play.gif (982 bytes)

send me out upon the water
send me out across the sea
i was meant to be a sailor
like my father and his father before me

give my money to the preacher
put the dollar in his hand
got to buy my way to heaven
cause if i don't, they might not let me in

stretch your hands across the water
make sure everybody sees
you welcome me
to your private promised land
everybody knows the answer but me

give my body to the doctors
i'll pitch in do what i can
doctor tells me not to worry
he's got the situation well in hand
be a knight in shining armor
join the army take a stand
be sure and call you when i get there
i'll be all that i can be i'll be a man

stretch your hands across the water
make sure everybody sees
you welcome me
to your private promised land
everybody knows the answer but me

think i'll be politician
press the flesh across this land
and i won't care about the power
cause i wanna be a well respected man

stretch your hands across the water
make sure everybody sees
you welcome me
to your private promised land
everybody knows the answer but me
