Bendin' over backwards
You walk on shells like a prisoner
But it's shaky ground when you livin' in a house of cards

Your nerves are shot, you can barely cope
You're spread so thin like a tightrope
Trippin' over yourself to make sure you never miss a mark

Don't you know
Hey, you can't please everybody?
No, you can't please everybody
No, no matter how hard you try

Hey, hey, hey, you can't
You can't please everybody
No, you can't please everybody
Oh, no matter how hard you try

Whatcha lookin' at me for?
I used my tears to mop the floor
One stick, one stone ain't enough to make me fall apart

Somebody waits for you with a crown
Somebody else wants to take you down
It don't matter which side of the fence that you choose to ride

Don't you know
You can't, you can't please everybody?
No, you can't please everybody
Oh, no matter how hard you try

Hey, hey, hey, you can't
You can't please everybody
No, you can't please everybody
No matter how hard you try

You need someone to hold your hand
Someone to understand
But you tiptoeing tryin' to find, it's just a waste of time

So many people up in your face
Only hold you back, only slow your pace
You'll lose it if you keep on tryin'

Don't you know
You can't please everybody?
No, you can't please everybody
Oh, no matter, no matter, no matter how hard you try

You can't please everybody
Oh no, you can't please everybody
No matter, no matter, no matter how hard you try
No matter, no matter, no matter how hard you try
