  • You've got diamonds and I've got spades
    You've got pills
    And I've got razor blades
    You've got yoga honey
    I've got beer
    You got overpriced
    And I got weird
    But it's alright
    We're the same even though we're alone
    It's alright
    Yes we all need a room of our own
    You've got love darlin'
    I've got sex
    You've got cash, mama
    And I've got checks
    You've got business, baby
    I've got the kids
    You got crowded just the way I did
    But it's alright
    Cause we all need a place to call home
    It's alright
    Yes we all need a room of our own
    I can still remember packed together
    Like a can of sardines
    No, no, no
    Pushin', shovin'
    That's when lovin'
    Starts to come apart at the seams
    Oh no, no, no, no
    You've got the day shift
    I've got nights
    We go wrong at times
    But we've got rights
    You've got TV shows
    I've got crime
    But you've got your room, honey
    And I've got mine
    It's alright
    It's the one thing that we should have known
    Yes, it's alright
    Yes, we all need a room of our own
    And it's alright
    Yes we all need a place to call home
    It's alright
    Yes we all need a room of our own
    It's alright
    It's alright
    To have a room of your own
    No, no, no, it's alright
    Yeah it's alright mama
    To have a room of our own
    Sometimes you've got to get away
    Got to get away
    Got to get away
    Got to get away to a room of our own
    Got to have a room
    Got to have a little elbow room of my own.
