Everybody's Normal (Until You Get To Know Them)

Updated: Aug 4, 2022

Our rockin' blues song is now on all platforms. "Everybody's Normal" is a fun tune based on folks we actually know. It talks about how weird we all are in one way or another.

We had a lot of fun recording this song and were so lucky to have Bob Silversides lay down a sweet B3 Organ solo.

Jim played one of his favourite guitars - an old beat up Strat for this song. Kim played organ and Bob played some killer honkytonk piano when he wasn't playing his B3 sound.

Add Cyril Schermann's solid bass and Scott Evans' drum rips make this song fun and memorable.

We hope you like this song as much as do!

Everybody's Normal - Lyrics and Chords

E D C# E D A

I worked with a girl, as quiet as can be, E D C# E D A

Until that night at the staff party.

A In all the years we knew her, hardly spoke to anyone.

We thought it would be good if she came out and had some fun. E D C# E D A

Now she’s B7 twerking on a table with her shirt in her hand.

First E party she came to and she got herself banned. E D C# E F# G G#

Chorus:

A A little bit of distance can take you pretty far G

E ‘Cause when you get too close, you see the mess we all are. E D C# E D A

A Closer you get, there’s a lot of things you’ll B7 show ‘em ‘cause

E Everybody’s normal ‘til you get to know ‘em. D E D C# E D A


I got a friend seemed a pretty straight up guy E D C# E D A

Until we worked our way through half a bottle of rye.

A He said the world is run by reptilian shape-shifters,

If you look on-line, you can see all the pictures. E D C# E D A

I said B7 “brother, you must be shittin’ me”,

He E looked me in the eye and said “You just wait and see”. D E D C# E F# G G#


A A little bit of distance can take you pretty far G

E ‘Cause when you get too close, you see the mess we all are. E D C# E D A

A Closer you get, there’s a lot of things you’ll B7 show ‘em ‘cause

E Everybody’s normal ‘til you get to know ‘em. D E D C# Drop: E D C# C


B7 Phobias and fixations, delusions and fears

D Often exposed with A 3 or more beers

B7 Inside someone’s head, there’s a lot of crossed wires

We D pretend they don’t A exist, like patholo G gical E liars

Solo - E D C# E D A x 2 A E D C# E D A B7 E x 2 1- Guitar, 2 - Organ


You know that secret thing that you’ll never tell? E D C# E D A

Or the one your folks said would send you straight to Hell.

A Sometimes I’m thankful we all have doors

It’s like our elevators all miss a few floors. E D C# G F# F E

B7 So next time you look at someone and wonder what to say

A Capella: E They might be lookin’ back at you the very same way. E D C#

E F# G G#

A A little bit of distance can take you pretty far G

E ‘Cause when you get too close, you see the mess we all are. E D C# E D A

A Closer you get, there’s a lot of things you’ll B7 show ‘em ‘cause

E Everybody’s normal ‘til you get to know ‘em. D E D C# E D A

Everybody’s normal ‘til you get to know ‘em.

Everybody’s normal ‘til you get to know ‘em.
