Everyone Says 'Hi'

(David Bowie)



Said you'd took a big trip
They said you moved away
Happened oh so quietly, they say

Should've took a picture
Something I could keep
Buy a little frame, something cheap
For you
Everyone says 'hi'

Said you sailed a big ship
Said you sailed away
Didn't know the right thing to say

I'd love to get a letter
Like to know what's what
Hope the weather's good and it's not too hot
For you

Everyone says 'hi'
Everyone says 'hi'
Everyone says

Don't stay in a sad place
Where they don't care how you are
Everyone says 'hi'

If the money is lousy
You can always come home
We can do all the old things
  (Doo wap wap wha oo)
We can do all the bad things
  (Doo wap wap)
If the food gets you leary
You can always phone home
We could do all the good things
  (Doo wap wap wha oo)
We could do it, we could do it, we could do it
  (Doo wap wap oooo)

Don't stay in a bad place
Where they don't care how you are

Everyone says 'hi'
Everyone says 'hi'
Everyone says 'hi'
  (Everyone says 'hi')
And the girl next door
  (Everyone says 'hi')
And the guy upstairs
  (Everyone says 'hi')
Everyone says 'hi'
  (Everyone says 'hi')
And your mum and dad
  (Everyone says 'hi')
Everyone says 'hi'
  (Everyone says 'hi')
And your big fat dog
  (Everyone says 'hi')
Everyone says 'hi'
  (Everyone says 'hi')
Everyone says
