---------------------------------------
I slipped and fell
On a banana peel
It really
Hurt a lot

Even though everyone
Seemed melancholy
They pointed at me
And laughed

Look here
It seems it's only at times like this
That everything in the world
Goes well

Even when I was
Abandoned by my girlfriend
Everyone laughed
Whenever they saw me

Look here
It's only at times like this
That everyone in the world
Is wrapped in happiness

Laugh
At me
Laugh
'til your sides split

I slip on a banana peel
One more time
And everybody
Looks back at me

Surely
It's times like this
That everything in the world
Goes well

Laugh
At me
Laugh
'til your sides split
It's only at times like this
That everyone in the world
Is wrapped in happiness

Laugh
At me
Laugh
'til your sides split
Laugh
