You're Not in on the Joke

  • Don't take them faces if they got a little?
    Yeah can he smell the stare
    I have no skill?

    Just remember
    I'm no cynic
    You know I'm just getting bored

    I'm no cynic no I've got a heart of gold
    They say I'm cold cold cold, man I was so cold
    I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
    Don't get offended if there's something you miss

    I only show you what I want you to see
    I've got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
    And you see them laughing (you see them laughing)
    Don't follow them
    Cause their not part of my joke

    I always be just who you want me to be
    And keep my tongue in my cheek
    A hopeless romantic
    You'll never see
    Cause your not in on the joke

    I got my picture in the Beverly*, my parents were proud
    Hey kid it's not a bad job yeah
    Next thing you know, peculiar faces start hanging around
    Dear lord could you spare me
    I just have one side to show you all
    My ass It's awesome to smell
    When you're kissing it.

    They say I'm cold cold cold, man am I so cold
    I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
    Call your professor if there's something you miss

    I only show you what I want you to see
    I've got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
    And you see them laughing (you see them laughing)
    Don't follow 'em
    Cause their not part of my joke

    I only be just what you want me to be
    And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
    A hopeless romantic
    And you'll never see
    Cause your not in on the joke

    No you don't know
    You don't know me
    No you don't know
    You don't know me
    No you don't know

    I only show you what I want you to see
    I've got my tongue my tongue in my cheek
    If you see them laughing
    Don't follow 'em, cause they are not part of my joke

    I always be just who you want me to be
    And keep my tongue in my cheek

    Don't take them faces at their value in a cynical town
    Yeah, can't you smell the stale air?
    I had no skill but I had heart so then I turned it around
    And just remember I'm no cynic,

    I got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek If you see them laughing, don't follow in
    Cause they're the butt of my joke
    I'll always be just who you want me to be
    And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
    A hopeless romantic, you'll never see
    Cause you're not in on the joke
    I got my picture in the paper and my parents were proud
    Hey, kid, that's not a bad job, yeah
