lyrics

Want to show that you’re a big man
had some power and some influence, a rock ‘n roll band

They say you’d eye up all the pretty girls
and invite them back to your place for a drink afterwards

Then you’d lean in close for a kiss
and before they even knew it, it’s the back of your fist

They say you’d take the ladies by the neck
and you'd shake them round the room for a violent effect

Everyone knew, everyone knew, everyone knew, all about you
Everyone knew, everyone knew, everyone knew, all about you

Before long the ladies started to talk
and they went to the papers and filed a report

Now you’re facing the photographers
and the press, former colleagues, you’re not saying a word

Strong lady lawyer at your defense
It’s a judge not a jury who you’ll have to convince

They said the ladies stayed in touch
Sent you pictures, wrote you letters, said they missed you so much

Everyone knew, everyone knew, everyone knew, all about you
Everyone knew, everyone knew, everyone knew, all about you

Remember Lucy from the Trailer Park Boys?
She’s an air force captain, she was one of his toys

She tried to explain that in retrospect
the way that she acted was a social reflex

An attempt to leverage sexual power
make it feel like this was wanted anyhow

The judge said son “I can see,
clearly boys will be boys so we’ll let you go free”

Everyone knew, everyone knew, everyone knew, that's what he'd do
Everyone knew, everyone knew, everyone knew, that's what he'd do
