Everyday People
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Lyrics

Sometimes I'm right then I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my songs
A butcher, a banker, a drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I'm in
I am everyday people

Then it's the blue ones who can't accept
The green ones for living with
The black ones tryin' to be a skinny one
Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby dooby

We gotta live together

I am no better and neither are you
We're all the same whatever we do
You love me, you hate me
You know me and then
Still can't figure out the scene I'm in
I am everyday people

Then it's the new man
That doesn't like the short man
For being such a rich one
That will not help the poor one
Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on scooby dooby dooby

We got to live together

There is a yellow one that won't
Accept the black one
That wont accept the red one
That wont accept the white one

Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and
Scooby dooby dooby
I am everyday people

Just saw her in concert tonight.... she ended the show with this song, I cried! Life is complete❤️


@Sports Talk With Big Dre Being an old timer has nothing to do with it, it has everything to do with having excellent music taste which you have. I’m 28 years old and I love this sort of stuff! Classic rock all the way

Sports Talk With Big Dre

I saw her about 10 yrs ago at a small venue a casino .
She ended with the set with everyday peeps it was bad ass…
Most of the people in attendance I don’t think even knew the song but the few of us old timers that were where there were singing along with big smiles on our faces. GOOD SHIT!!!

Guillermo Garcia Pandal

That is awesome! I wanted to go recently thanks to Covid it didn't happen

Sean Beckett

Did anyone notice that in this song, the audio quality is more "crisp" than in the music video of this song, as 80's music videos seem to have a "dampened" sound.

Sean Beckett

Yes I've definitely noticed this too. Annoying because I love watching Joan so much as her songs play.

Michelle Keaton

Joan Jett rocks! Love that woman.


The queen of rock and roll Joan Jett!
