Hi Everyone!
Here’s an oldie but a goodie – Everyday People by Sly and the Family Stone.

I have to say, I was a young’un when this song came out, and I fell instantly in love. It touched on all the things that were going on in my world at the time. I had just begun attending a school that was newly integrated, and everyone was trying to figure out where we belonged. This song hit the nail on the head for everyone.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s Sly and the Family Stone singing the unforgettable Everyday People. Enjoy!

Everyday People
Written by Sly Stone
November, 1968

Sometimes I’m right and I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I’m in

I am everyday people, yeah yeah

There is a blue one who can’t accept the green one
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo

Oooh sha sha, we got to live together

I am no better and neither are you
We are the same whatever we do
You love me you hate me you know me and then
You can’t figure out the bag I’m in

I am everyday people, yeah yeah

There is a long hair that doesn’t like the short hair
For bein’ such a rich one that will not help the poor one
Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo

Oooh sha sha, we got to live together

There is a yellow one that won’t accept the black one
That won’t accept the red one that won’t accept the white one
Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo

I am everyday people
