NO LAUGHING MATTER
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1998 YUMMY POP TUNES / PENNYBARK MUSIC (ASCAP)


I'M THE COURT JESTER
IN THIS LOVESICK CHARADE
AND THE FOOL THAT I AM
DOESN'T KNOW WHAT I'VE MADE
SHE TOOK ME IN HER ARMS
AND SHE LED ME ON PARADE
I'M A PUPPET IN HER HANDS
AND SHE'S SMILING ALL THE WAY

I FIND IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER
WHEN IT'S PUSH OR SHOVE
SHE MAY THINK IT'S FUNNY
TILL THE JOKE'S BEEN PLAYED ON HER
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER


SHE'S A DICTATOR
SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CONTROL
BUT IT'S A MATTER OF TIME
BEFORE SHE LOSES HER ROLE
CAUSE I'VE GIVEN UP THAT PLACE
AS A FOOL ON HER STAFF
AND THE TABLES WILL TURN
AND I'LL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH


THAT'S WHY IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER
WHEN IT'S PUSH OR SHOVE
SHE MAY THINK IT'S FUNNY
TILL THE JOKE'S BEEN PLAYED ON HER
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER


WORD'S BEEN GOING ROUND THE TOWN
THAT I'VE BEEN PAINTED A CLOWN

IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER
WHEN IT'S PUSH OR SHOVE
SHE MAY THINK IT'S FUNNY
TILL THE JOKE'S BEEN PLAYED ON HER
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
IT'S NO LAUGHING MATTER
