They were laughing at the bar about the girl with the big butt
Saying they ain’t never seen nothing like that slut
And how could anybody ever think about bein’ with her?

Joey likes to drink and when he drinks he likes to fight
and his buddies think it makes for a pretty funny Friday night
when Joey gets all liquored up and takes a swing and causes a stir

The whole world is full of laughter
But the high is wearing thin
I’m praying someone somewhere gently
will bring the sadness back in

Underneath the mattress where he keeps his cash
Is a bunch of magazines he calls his secret stash
It’s a life that he ain’t never lived
But man he’d love to give them dice a roll

And every time he flinches while he’s flippin' through the stack
He tells himself that anything that paper might lack
Is made up by the fact that
every woman there is under his control

All these promises of freedom
In the bondages of sin
I’m praying someone somewhere gently
will bring the sadness back in

Everybody’s aching underneath their skin
But all of ‘em are laughing as they’re bein’ sworn in
To testify, so help them God,
that everybody here’s having a blast
