The Miracles - Everybody's Gotta Pay Some Dues lyrics

If ever I have a son in life, I'll call him in one day

Sit him down upon my knee and here is what I'll say



You might lose your lover, people do sometime

Oh, but it won't make sense for you to sit around cryin'

Son, don't you know that when you fall in love

Sometimes, you're gonna have the blues

Well it may take years, but you're gonna she'd some tears

'Cause everybody's got to pay some dues, now, now

Everybody's got to pay some dues



You might have money, yeah, and a big fine car

It don't matter what you look like, no, no it don't matter who you are

Son, don't you know you can't win all the time

Sometime you're gonna have to lose

Just as long as you live, you got to take as well as give

'Cause everybody's got to pay some dues, now, now

Everybody's got to pay some dues



Whoa whoa whoa

(Whoa whoa whoa)

Yeah yeah yeah

(Yeah yeah yeah)

Yeah hea hea hea hea hea

(Yeah hea hea hea hea hea)

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

(Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)



[Instrumental break]



Well now, everybody's got to pay some dues, yeah don't you know it now,

Everybody's got to pay some dues



Make no mistakes now son about the things I told you

I don't want you to think, yeah yeah, that I'm tryin' to scold you

Son because I know you got to fall in love sometime

Be careful who you choose

'Cause it's sure my son before your life is done

You'll find that everybody's got to pay some dues, yeah don't you know it now,

Everybody's got to pay some dues



([repeated in background to fade]

Dues, got to pay some dues, got to pay some dues)



I've got to pay, he's got to pay

You've got to pay and she's got to pay

No matter what you do, I say

There is gonna come a day

When you gonna have to pay

Cain't nobody get away from dues

Yeah yeah yeah now
