Is This a Joke?

from by Hold on Photon



Right when you walk in
I'm amused
Who is that goofy man
You're standin next to
He must have money
He must be funny
He's funny lookin
That's the truth

I wanna know
how can a guy like that
do so well
Without a gun to your back
Or some kind of magic spell
where he paid to have his heart broke
Are we all on tv
Is this a joke

I need the details
How someone like you awoke
In the light of the morning
next to that monkey lookin dope
He must be hunnngry
or know how to cook
maybe a ghostwriter
for one of those best selling books

how does it work
he must know how to dance
without some secret moves
he ain't got a chinaman's chance

la ta da la da da la da ta da da etc...


Every story has a place
I was workin up front and said
How can I help you today
Butterflies in my throat
when you said I'll have a sweet tea
And my brother
Your brother?
Yes, my brother
Will have
A coke
