Yeah, I was talking to the postman, he mentioned your name
Seems like everyboy, everybody knows about my good thing
Call the plumber, darling, there must be a leak in my drain
It seems like everybody, everybody knows about my good thing

Yeah, I was talking to my neighbour about the way you wear your hair
He said you must have a lot of children 'cause the milkman's always there
Call the plumber, darling, there must be a leak in my drain
It seems like everybody, everybody, everybody knows, everybody knows about my good thing

Come on, yeah
All right, play that solo

Yeah

Yeah, yeah

Mmm, I was talking to the butcher, he said you always look so neat
I guess that's why my freezer is always full of meat
Call the plumber, darling, there must be a leak in my drain
It seems like everybody, everybody, everybody knows about my good thing

That's right, here we go
Everybody

I said everybody knows about my, everybody knows about my good thing
Everybody knows about, nobody wants to leave my woman, nobody wants to leave her alone
Call the plumber, darling, there must be a leak in my drain - yeah
It seems like everybody, everybody, everybody, everybody knows about my good thing




TrackTalk

I did a blues night in London with Pops Staples, and one of the numbers I played with Gary Moore was Little Johnny Taylor's Everybody Knows About My Good Thing.
