From the album Pollyanna’s Attic.

Written by Chris Jonat and Carolyn Arends.

Everybody wants to be this year’s rock star
Sound like Clapton on guitar
Trash a room, crash a car
So everyone knows who you are
It’s so bizarre
Everybody wants everything

Everybody wants to be a modern day Don Juan
Everyday a different blonde
Heart weak, head strong
Absolutely nothing wrong
‘Til youth is gone
Everybody wants everything
Everybody wants it
Everybody needs it
Everybody wants everything

Everybody wants to be the hero in the neighbourhood
Standing in for brotherhood
If we fail it’s understood
We did everything we could
So it still feels good
Everybody wants everything

Everybody wants to get a piece of the big pie
Everything that money buys
Wanting more until we die
Deep inside we wonder why
We even try
Everybody wants everything

Chorus

Everybody wants to get ahead of the rat race
Find ourselves a better place
Can’t we see it’s such a waste
All we need is just one taste
Of amazing grace
Everybody wants everything
Everybody wants it
Everybody needs it
Everybody wants everything
