Lyrics

Was That a Joke or What Was That, a Joke?

When you sat down to eat and you opened your mouth
That's when the whole evening went south for me
Couldn't believe what you said I wanted you dead
I'll never forget what you said about me
My night was over and done I would have no more fun
Just sit stunned watch it rerun on my mental TV

Was that a joke or what
Was that a joke or what
Was that a joke or what was that?

Was it me who egged you on?
It was me who cried 'til dawn
That dress that you put on
Ugliest you've ever worn

What you said it hurt it wasn't worth
The laughter you most certainly achieved
And you're surrounded by friends who tell you time and again
How classy you are; well honey you are being deceived
Cause when you lie to yourself there ain't no one to help
You tell the truth too loud in a crowd
What have you achieved?

Was that a joke or what
Was that a joke or what
Was that a joke or what was that?

Was that a joke or what
Was that a joke or what
Was that a joke or what was that?
