"You're Not In On the Joke" as written by Gabe Saporta and Patrick Stump....
Don't take them faces if they got a little?
Yeah can he smell the stare
I have no skill?

Just remember
I'm no cynic
You know I'm just getting bored

I'm no cynic no I've got a heart of gold
They say I'm cold cold cold, man I was so cold
I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
Don't get offended if there's something you miss

I only show you what I want you to see
I've got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
And you see them laughing (you see them laughing)
Don't follow them
Cause their not part of my joke

I always be just who you want me to be
And keep my tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic
You'll never see
Cause your not in on the joke

I got my picture in the Beverly*, my parents were proud
Hey kid it's not a bad job yeah
Next thing you know, peculiar faces start hanging around
Dear lord could you spare me
I just have one side to show you all
My ass It's awesome to smell
When you're kissing it.

They say I'm cold cold cold, man am I so cold
I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
Call your professor if there's something you miss

I only show you what I want you to see
I've got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
And you see them laughing (you see them laughing)
Don't follow 'em
Cause their not part of my joke

I only be just what you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic
And you'll never see
Cause your not in on the joke

No you don't know
You don't know me
No you don't know
You don't know me
No you don't know

I only show you what I want you to see
I've got my tongue my tongue in my cheek
If you see them laughing
Don't follow 'em, cause they are not part of my joke

I always be just who you want me to be
And keep my tongue in my cheek
You'll never see
Cause your not in on the joke



















Don't take them faces at their value in a cynical town
Yeah, can't you smell the stale air?
I had no skill but I had heart so then I turned it around
And just remember I'm no cynic,
you know I'm just getting bored I'm no cynic,
you know I got a heart of gold
They say I'm cold, cold, cold, baby, why so cold?
I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
Don't get offended if there's something you miss
I only show you what I want you to see
I got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek If you see them laughing, don't follow in
Cause they're the butt of my joke
I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see
Cause you're not in on the joke
I got my picture in the paper and my parents were proud
Hey, kid, that's not a bad job, yeah
Next thing you know peculiar faces start hanging around
Dear Lord, could you spare me?
I just got one side to show you all
My ass is awesome so smile when you're kissing it all
They say I'm cold, cold, cold
Baby, why so cold? I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
Call your professor if there's something you miss
I only show you what I want you to see
I got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
If you seem them laughing, don't follow in
Cause they're the butt of my joke
I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see
Cause you're not in on the joke
No, you don't know, you don't know me
No, you don't know, you don't know me
No, you don't know me, no, oh, no, oh
I only show you what I want you to see
I got my tongue, tongue in my cheek
If you see them laughing, don't follow in
Cause they're the butt of my joke
I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see
Cause you're not in on the joke

    General Commentit's 'i just have one side to show you all / my ass, it's awesome to smell, when you're kissing it'

    gabe also talked about this song to mtv. he said how viva! was all about them being everyones guilty pleasure and them not giving a shit. and since viva! was released alot more people have heard about cobra and don't get the joke, but cobra's REAl fans do. and this song was for the people who still look at cobra as clowns. pretty much what the line up there^ is sayingg.

    the lyrics in the beginning are hard to figure out though. haha. can't wait to get the cd next week though !!

    General CommentI think I should have been more specific with the correction in the last comment.

    "They say I'm cold, cold, cold
    Baby, why so cold?"

    replaces

    "Listen, girl, girl, girl
    ..."


    So it should be

    They say I'm cold, cold, cold
    Baby, why so cold?
    I'm super sweet

    General CommentStraight from the booklet:

    Don't take them faces at their value in a cynical town
    Can't you smell the stale air?
    I had no skill but I had heart so then I turned it around
    So just remember:

    I'm no cynic, but sometimes I get bored
    I'm no cynic; I got a heart of gold

    They say I'm cold, cold, cold
    oh baby why you cold?
    I'm super-sweet sealed with a kiss
    Don't get offended if there's something you missed

    I only show you what I want you to see
    I got my tongue in my cheek
    If you see them laughing, don't follow in
    'Cause they're the butt of my joke

    I'll lways be ust who you want me to be and keep my tonge in my cheek
    A hopeless romantic
    You'll never see,
    'Cause you're not in on the joke.

    I got my picturein the paper nd my parents were proud:
    "Hey kid, that's not a bad job, yeah."
    Next thing you know, peculiar faces start hangin' around
    Dear lord, could you spare me?

    I've just got one side to show you all:
    My ass is awsome, so smile when you're kissing it :)

    They say I'm cold, cold, cold
    Gabey baby you so cold!

    I'm super-sweet sealed with a kid :*
    Call your profesor if there's something you missed.
