Everybody Went Low
written by John Hiatt

Well the prize was right there underneath our eyeballs
And when it all came down we were looking for the pitfalls
Until Junie said baby get yourself to going
And we were so far gone we had no way of knowing

Everybody went low
Everybody went low
Everybody went low

Well she was pretty as a junebug jumpy as a nerve end
And when she pulled the rug out my tires started swerving
And I was driving through the living room driving through the basement
Looking for the lowest spot in the pavement

Everybody went low
Everybody went low
Everybody went low
Everybody went low

Nothing there to corrupt you
Nothing there to live up to
There's no place further down
Turn it off or turn around

Well I was coming up for air I heard somebody breathing
And it was Junie Bug praying harder than a heathen
And she was smiling like the sole survivor in a lifeboat
Said if I jump in Junie do you think this thing will still float

Everybody went low
Everybody went low
Everybody went low
Everybody went low

Low, low, low...
