Countdown to New Shoes Album Day 14 Track 2

Standard

(Post edited – each day, a new song was previewed. The preview link was the same every day. I have removed those links as they are now dead. As the band releases videos, I’ll adjust links for specific songs. Your best bet right now is to head on over to ShoesWire.com and buy Ignition. You won’t be disappointed. The guys put a great deal of time and thought into this album and the songs are stellar.)

Shoes, that amazing Power Pop band from Zion, Illinois, has been working on a new album for over a year. It’s titled Ignition and will have an “Extreme Fan” release on July 3rd. Every day, starting on June 18, they are revealing a new song, counting down from Track 15.

Track 2 is The Joke’s On You by Jeff Murphy.

THE JOKE’S ON YOU
(Jeff Murphy)

You might find another noble cause
To hang upon your wall
And fill your hallowed halls

But in time your words will seal your fate
So I’m picking up the pace
And laughing in your face

‘Cause the joke’s on you
That’s the way it goes
When everybody knows
That the joke’s on you

I don’t need to say
That it’s funny how things change
Your point of view
When the joke’s on you

Now the joke’s on you
Strange to think that how
It’s not so funny now
That the joke’s on you

I was your amusement for a while
Now you can’t crack a smile
I’m laughing all the while

You can’t see the forest for your needs
Despite your desperate pleas
It just occurred to me

Now the joke’s on you
It’s right before your eyes
It comes as no surprise
That the joke’s on you

Now you know
That it’s funny how love goes
From hot to cold

When the joke’s on you
That’s the way it goes
When everybody knows
That the joke’s on you

Now the joke’s on you
The joke’s on you
