Hatin' Somebody

  • I may never like your shoes
    You may never like mine
    We may never be all cheers drinkin' beers
    Arm in arm singin' Auld Lang Syne
    But maybe we can meet somewhere in the middle
    Like strings 'tween a fiddle and a bow
    You need a paddle on the left, a paddle on the right
    'Cause we're all in the same damn boat

    Hatin' somebody ain't never got nobody nowhere
    It's a bad seed to sow, it's a dead end road when you go there
    Makin' any headway that way ain't got no prayer, no prayer
    Hatin' somebody ain't never got nobody nowhere

    We're all going somewhere
    When we ain't here no more
    We're all going somewhere
    And we're all going through the same door

    Now wakin' up and puttin' that smile on
    Beats the hell out of wakin' up dead
    That ain't how grandpa always was
    But it is what he always said, now
    Stick a stubborn hillbilly in the middle of the city
    Gotta learn how not to throw stones
    He didn't live long enough to hear this song
    But he lived long enough to know, no, no

    Hatin' somebody ain't never got nobody nowhere
    It's a bad seed to sow, it's a dead end road when you go there
    Makin' any headway that way ain't got no prayer, no prayer
    Hatin' somebody ain't never got nobody nowhere
    No, no, nowhere

    Hatin' somebody ain't never got nobody nowhere
    It's a bad seed to sow, it's a dead end road when you go there
    Makin' any headway that way ain't got no prayer, no prayer
    Hatin' somebody ain't never got nobody nowhere

    We're all going somewhere
    When we ain't here no more
    We're all going somewhere
    And we're all going through the same door
    We're all going somewhere
    When we ain't here no more
    We're all going somewhere
    And we're all going through the same door Writer/s: Casey Beathard, John Osborne, Thomas J. Osborne
