Everybody Did OK Today (click here for lyrics)

(Lester Koshiol)
VERSE 1
Today a black man got a job
A poor man bought a house.
A child graduated from school
My best friend took a spouse.
The boss got off my back
He even gave me a raise.
The technology was right on track
Everybody made the grade.

CHORUS
Everybody did OK today
Nobody suffered from stress.
We all did OK today
Everybody passed the test.
Everybody got some.

VERSE 2
Today a cripple learned to walk
A dumb man began to talk.
A child learned to read
The door was opened 'cause I knocked.
Everybody had a heavy load
Everybody pulled his weight.
There was no road rage on the road
Nobody was late.

CHORUS
Everybody did OK today
Nobody suffered from stress.
We all did OK today
Everybody passed the test.
Everybody had enough.

BRIDGE
I can't go any higher
I can't place blame.
I can't get angry
I can't be the same.
I brought you here
And I can't turn back.
I have no fear
And that's a fact.

CHORUS (2X)
Everybody did OK today
Nobody suffered from stress.
We all did OK today
Everybody passed the test.
Everybody had enough.
