Beautiful South — I Started A Joke lyrics

(Gibb / Gibb / Gibb)

I started a joke
Which started the whole world crying
Oh had I only seen
That the joke was on me

And I started to cry
Which started the whole world laughing
Oh had I only known
That the joke was on me

I looked at the sky
And holding my hands over my eyes
I fell out of bed
Cursing my head for the things that I said

I finally died
Which started the whole world living
Oh had I only seen that the joke was on me

On me
On me

I finally died
Oh I finally died
I started a joke
Which started the whole world crying

Oh I finally died (repeat above)
