"Tom and Mary" as written by and Folds....
For the benefit of Tom and Mary
Before our guests arrive
If they haven't found out already
It's gonna blow all their minds
Will they find the strength to find
The will to testify?
That for the benefit of Tom and Mary
There's something we can't hide anymore
Everybody here knows the story
Some have fabricated extra parts
See the sisters shouting whispers
Feeding hot air to the sparks
Put a damper on the party
It will lighten up the room
For the benefit of Tom and Mary
They've got to see the truth today
Miss Southern's son says
"Here they come"
And all the chatter and the smiles
They come undone
And you could here a pin drop
On the carpet floor
Everyone's pretending Not to hear the knocking at the door
For the benefit of Tom and Mary
Before our guests arrive
If they haven't found out already
It's gonna blow all of their minds
If they haven't found out already
And yet the seams all seem to show
That for the benefit of Tom and Mary
For the benefit of Tom and Mary
For the benefit of Tom and Mary
We gotta let the truth be known
