Happy ever-afters they are just a joke
Forever is a long time it will go up in smoke
There are no happy endings just a few happy times
In youth we are immortal then shocked by our decline
How slowly does the penny drop we're victims of a joke
Quite often realisation is just before we croak

There are no happy ever-afters the stuff of fairy tales
How slowly does it dawn on us that we are born to fail
That's when we tend to realise what a waste of time
Like actors in the worst of plays pointless every line
How slowly does the penny drop we're victims of a joke
Quite often realisation is just before we croak

Well often it is praised the sanctity of life
A pointless aimless exercise in loss suffering and strife
Well when you leave this world I hope you've had a laugh
'Cause someone's played a trick on you they fucked you up the arse
How slowly does the penny drop we're victims of a joke
Quite often realisation is just before we croak

It might be in the worst of taste this god's little joke
But now I have realised it I think it's time to croak
