Lyrics

Everything (the van song)†

I tried my hand at writing a happy song.† My sister-in-law told me once that my songs always made her cry.† Well she cried when I sang this one for her too.† Back to the drawing boardÖ††††

 

Look at my face, look at this smile

Look at these clothes, Iíve had them since the day that they went out of style

Look at my car, rusty and brown

Thereís nothing new under my sun, but I wonít let that get me down

ĎCause Iíve got Jesus, and I know He loves me, and that means everything!

 

Call me a loser, call me a fool

I know itís no big secret that Iím miles away from cool

But Iíve got Jesus and I know He loves me and that means everything!

 

Look at my face, look at this smile

Look at my house, the roof needs shingles, itís been leaking for a while

Look in my pockets, look at my bank account

Iím just barely squeaking by, but I donít need a huge amount

ĎCause Iíve got Jesus, and I know He loves me, and that means everything!

 

Call me a failure, call me a clown

Youíre entitled to your opinion, but your opinions will not get me down

ĎCause Iíve got Jesus, and I know He loves me, and that means everything!

 

And where Iím going, I wonít need money

And I wonít need my rusty, noisy, dirty, eighty-eight Dodge Caravan

My roof wonít leak, my doors wonít squeak

My paint wonít peel, (talk about a deal) no money down, no payment plan!

Iím getting new clothes, Iím gonna be in style

Just look at me and you will see, Iíll have an even bigger smile

ĎCause Iíll see Jesus, and I know He loves me, and that means everything!
