    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)

    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
    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
    Can't nobody get away from dues
    Yeah yeah yeah, now
