"Share a Little Joke" as written by Marty Balin and Paul L. Kantner....
A friend of mine asked me
Where has he been
Where is he now?
I said he's been set free
Shares a little joke with the world somehow

Sounded like he'd make a halo
When I heard his laughter floating
It's all for fun you know
He said he just let go
Shares a little joke with the world

World around you
Never catches up with you

How can I make you as happy as I am
I feel like you're running
I know we could fly
Your eyes are never tired
Your mind is on fire
Your heart has never been satisfied

Some people are in love
Some know everything can be done
I think you're joking
I believe half of you
I want to journey
I want to laugh with you
But after you
Share a little joke with the world

World around you
Never catches up with you

    General CommentMarty's role in the Airplane had diminished when this song was recorded. He was no longer the front man leading the group, writing and singing all of the material like he was at the beginning. So he wrote this as a response to inquiries about his involvement with the band. An inside joke but also it follows a similar theme with the song 'If You Feel' being; don't take things too seriously, just let it go.
