Everybody is a song featured on the Japanese and deluxe editions of Britney Spears' fifth full-length studio album Blackout. The song is a bonus track on the album. It was also released as the b-side to "Break the Ice". It features a sample of the Eurythmics' song "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)", written by Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart.

Background[]

The Cheetah Girls sang the demo of "Everybody". It is rumored that Britney herself made changes to the lyrics, however, she was uncredited on the track. The song was originally intended for Rihanna's second album, A Girl Like Me. After writer/producer J.R. Rotem began working with Britney, he decided that it should be on Blackout instead.[1]

Lyrics[]

(Everybody)
(Everybody's looking for something)

I'm ferocious, when I see you instantly
So precocious, assuming that you're into me
So fierce the way you pierce me with your energy
My heart's on fire - boy, come on and rescue me

When I see you, I need you right away (taking me)
Can't control the way that I am behaving
It's got a hold on me, grabbing me rapidly
Romantic dancing, dreams are made of this, yeah

(Everybody)
Come on, get to jumping
(Everybody)
Moving next to something
(Everybody)
Feel the temperature rising
(Everybody)
Come on, let's keep grinding

It's so real to feel you standing next to me
So intense when your scent's in my vicinity
Body shaking, aching, I can't take it (how)
I want you so bad, boy, that I can taste it now

When I see you, I need you right away (taking me)
Can't control the way that I am behaving
It's got a hold on me, grabbing me rapidly
Romantic dancing, dreams are made of this, yeah

(Everybody)
Come on, get to jumping
(Everybody)
Moving next to something
(Everybody)
Feel the temperature rising
(Everybody)
Come on, let's keep grinding

Fellas get wild, start flashing your money
Ladies go crazy and act a fool
Everybody get down and do what you want to
The night is still young to be seduced

Taking it in every little thing I see
Triple type of dancing with the tab complete
Little boys dancing 'cause they feeling me
Sweating cold, fretting, it's the place to be
Come and sit with me, come and sit with me
Sit back, you'll see it so beautifully
Loving everybody, babe, is all you need
Let go the way things used to be

(Everybody)
Come on, get to jumping (everybody)
(Everybody)
Moving next to something (move your body)
(Everybody)
Feel the temperature rising (ohh)
(Everybody)
Come on, let's keep grinding

(Everybody)
Come on, get to jumping (let your body move, ohh)
(Everybody)
Moving next to something
(Everybody)
Feel the temperature rising
(Everybody)
Come on, let's keep griding

(Everybody)
Everybody
(Everybody's looking for something, everybody)
Everybody
(Everybody's looking for something)
