Ben Folds – Tom And Mary lyrics

for the benefit of Tom and Mary
before our guests arrive
if they haven't found out already
it's gonna blow 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 this 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 hear 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 their, minds!
and the seams all seem to show
for the benefit
for the benefit
for the benefit
for the benefit
(yeah, ah! oh yeah,
the blebleblebheeg! hebleble)
bugh ow!)

no way!
for the benefit
for the benefit
for the benefit
