I Started a Joke

 I started a joke,
 which started the whole world crying,
 but I didn't see that the joke was on me, oh no.
 I started to cry,
 which started the whole world laughing,
 oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.
 I looked at the skies,
 running my hands over my eyes,
 and I fell out of bed,
 hurting my head from things that I'd said.
 Til I finally died,
 which started the whole world living,
 oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.
 I looked at the skies,
 running my hands over my eyes,
 and I fell out of bed,
 hurting my head from things that I'd said.
 'Til I finally died,
 which started the whole world living,
 oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was one me.
