I’ll let you know in good time that I’ve been working on the perfect punch line.
I’ll tell you when it's good and ready, slow and steady, if you let me.
If you take your time then you’ll be fine, but if you jump the gun then you cross the line.
Stuck in a rut when it’s nettles or muck, if you pass the time then you pass the buck.
It’s only at the end of the day when the irony comes into play.
Cross my fingers, knock on wood, the universe unfolds as it should.
If what’s out of sight is out of mind, then what feels right is be hard to find.

If we’re going where the days are gone, then the little jokes and the false alarms
bend your ear and twist your arm, then come back here when we’re gone.
No truer words were spoken, than the ones you said when you were joking.
Something about how, way back when, things work out in the end,
And if they don’t give it time; it’s a practical joke and you’re at the punch line.
I felt the blood leave my face,
Then rush right back like a tidal wave.
Felt my heart skip a beat,
I jumped right up onto my feet.
If you push your weight with a lever
Repay the favour to the great deceiver
