"They All Laughed" as written by and Thomas Hughes....
"All success is fleeting," I said to her,
"Is that what you've been reading?" she snapped,
and turned to someone else and said
"Wait why is it that he was invited?"
That was fun

If you get this letter (and I hope you do),
please don't get upset or misconstrue,
my writing as it's not as favorable as the applause
you got today

Why don't you say what you were really
intending to gain by falling for me?

I still can't believe you thought us to be
more Eydie and Steve than Nancy and Lee.
When we did they all laughed;
it was never more than an act
but I had fun

Why don't you say what you were really
intending to gain by fallng for me?
If it's true say that you'd be willing
to believe when I feign my
questioning stare and
instinct to care when
you clean the air again

It's not like I had alluded,
maybe if you didn't give everything away,
given your lack of grace,

why don't you say what you were really
intending to gain by falling for me?
If it's true say that you'd be willing
to believe when I feign my
questioning stare and
instinct to care when
you clean the air again.
