Humor's got a place like all things,
be aware of the pain it can sometimes bring.
A joke to you might not be so funny,
so take the time and think it out
before you open up your mouth.

I can't believe the things we say
a cutting word can ruin days.
I can't believe the things we say
now I wish I hadn't spoken.
Can't you learn to take a fucking joke?

We say things we don't mean but friends
understand,
strength and humor don't always go hand in hand.
A joke to you might not be so funny,
so take the time and think it out
before you open up your mouth.

I can't believe the things we say
a cutting word can ruin days.
I can't believe the things we say
now I wish I hadn't spoken.
Can't you learn to take a fucking joke?

But no ones laughing.
I wish I could crack a smile,
but I can't.
I know he's such a fucking jerk,
but jerks hurt too
and I'm not that cool
that I can laugh.
I see, because it's happened to me
and I think I was an asshole
when I said what I said.
It's just a sick sense of humor rolls around in my head.
'Cause we've had our fun
at your expense
- and that's wrong
- and we know it!

You said we were friends.
Well for friendship's sake,
let's give it a break!

I can't believe the things we say
a cutting word can ruin days.
I can't believe the things we say
now I wish I hadn't spoken.
Can't you learn to take a fucking joke?
