Which really isn't funny.

Hear what I say
a smile and joke came my way
of course there was a
big price to pay
I payed the fee
but not with glee
nothing in this world comes free

Here's the way things are
everyone wants to be a star
own a big fine house
and drive a big nice car
But they can't afford
some even pray to the Lord
knowing that he already
cut the cord

Things really aren't funny
especially when we're
short on money
and the day isn't sunny
A frown replaces a
smile with eyes runny
We still try to laugh a little bit
knowing we really feel like chit
but we still won't quit
