EVERYBODY KNOWS MATILDA (Duke Baxter) Duke Baxter - 1969 The Petards - 1969 I went down to 42nd street Thought I'd get a bite to eat I saw a girl that I'd like to meet You know, she sure looked good Told me that her heart was broken Asked me what it was I's smoking All she had was an old bus token Yes, I would She cried a tear And said she was alone And would I be so good To accompany her home Yeah, I could, yeah But everybody knows Matilda Everybody knows Matilda Ain't no life for a young girl All alone in a great big world Matilda Took me to shack on the edge of town All the shades were pulled and drawn Nobody, not a soul around She smiled at me Mixed drinks and I fixed my head Drank it down, made me feel like lead When I asked her, where was the bed She said, I'd see She pulled me close Now what was I to do My head was spinning As she said take off your shoes And I agree, yeah But everybody knows Matilda Everybody knows Matilda Ain't no life for a young girl All alone in a great big world Matilda Heard a heavy knock upon the door Scared me so bad, I fell on the floor Heard a voice that sounded sore Said, let me in Matilda said her boyfriend had a gun Sorry, baby, but you have to run But I was gone before she was done I left my skin Flew out the window As the door came tumbling down Didn't even say goodbye I was homeward bound Just can't win, no Now everybody knows Matilda Everybody knows Matilda Ain't no life for a young girl All alone in a great big world Everybody knows Matilda Everybody knows Matilda Everybody knows Matilda Everybody knows Matilda
