B.b. King – A Story Everybody Knows Lyrics

Went to a party

The new york style

I met a lady

Make a sane man wild

She said the words only her lips could say

She made me want to throw my life away

But when I asked her

She said "maybe tomorrowb.b."

And that’s a story everybody knows

I took her flying

Out across the sea

I thought I had her

I know that she had me

And when we landed

It was parisfrance

Seemed like a nice place

For some french romance

But when I touched her

She said "maybe a little laterb.b."

And that’s the story everybody knows

We went to berlin

And to stockholm too

And on the moscow

Then to the peking zoo

As far as travelshe couldn’t get too much

Somewhere in oakland

She let me have just a little touch

And then she said "i’m late for beauty appointment

I’ve got a headacheand I believe I’m coming down with the flu"

And that’s the story everybody knows
