The field so green is a magnet
Now, everyone's trying this magic
A big man is pulling out rabbits from under his sleeve
He's famous, you see
For what he can do with a magic ring

I am a stage fright comedian
That nobody wants to go see again
My jokes are so long out of season
But they're laughing at me
I'm funny, you see
Everyone, throw all your bones to me

I know the joker's joke (I know the joker's joke)
Is just a beggar's beg (it's just a beggar's beg)
But damn, a lying man's only as good as he can fake

The eye in the sky is a magnet
Now, I have been forming a habit
Of reaching up and trying to grab it
But it closes on me
He's getting famous, you see
But no one gives a damn what he's doing to me

The field so green is a magnet
Now, everyone's trying this magic
A big man is pulling out rabbits from under his sleeve
He's famous, you see
But no one really cares what he's doing to me

Lah-da-da-dah-dah-da-dah-dah

I know the joker's joke
I know the beggar's beg
I know the liar's lie and I know the saint's fate

I know the joker's joke
I know the beggar's beg
I know the liar's lie and I know the saint's fate
