I'm worried 'bout you baby down in your rabbit hole
The evening of our great escape is starting to unfold
Out of bed, sleepy head it's different than you know
Everybody pays as they go

Now pull yourself together, put your chin up off your throat
Now whistle for the dogs and get your sled into the snow
Nothing's ever buried under skull and bones
Everybody pays as they go
Ooh, ooh

The playing field is level but it's ugly down below
It's a devil of a handbook, hi, ho, hi, ho
Now either you're the butcher or the lamb but even so
Everybody pays as they go

The future busted open wide and ran
Like a beehive loaded with sand
You can't go back and see it
The way you saw it then and nobody can
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Look up and see the men returning in their winter coats
Now some of them in one piece and some of them got rolled
And some less than others, some right through the nose
But everybody pays as they go

The young, old, and rich and poor, your mother, she too owes
'Cuz everybody pays as they go
Everybody pays
Yes, everybody pays as they go
