  • "This is a very spiritual song.

  • The listeners have to interpret it themselves

  • trying to explain it would detract from the song." (Robin Gibb)

  • ♪ 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 on me

  • Oh no, that the joke was on me...♪

  • oh oh oh oh... ♪�
