Verse 1:

G            Bm
I started a joke
  C                 D          G      Bm   C
Which started the whole world crying
    D         G   Bm   C
But I didn't see
          D   [1, 4: G  Bm  C  D ; 2, 3: G]
That the joke was on me, oh no

Verse 2:

I started to cry
Which started the whole world laughing
Oh, if I'd only seen
That the joke was on me

Chorus:

Em               Bm
I looked at the skies
             C            G
Running my hands over my eyes
    Bm            Em  
And I fell out of bed
 /D         Am
Hurting my head
                      D     [N.C.]
From things that I'd said

Verse 3:

'Til I finally died
Which started the whole world living
Oh, if I'd only seen [4: oh, yeah]
That the joke was on me

[repeat chorus]

[repeat verse 3]

Coda:

         (D)         G   Bm  C  D 
That the joke was on me
G   Bm   C   D    G [end cold]
Oh...
