i started a joke lyrics – bee gees

“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.
