Canned Laughter lyrics

Pre>intro f# b a

A d a d a
Canned laughter, rings in my ears the morning after
Canned laughter, would cans save a big disaster?
D f#m d f#m
Spreads around the room like a tumour, Im not exactly in good humour
D a dm e
I wish it came just one joke sooner, then Id have to laugh

Canned laughter, I cant crack up and I dont have to
Canned laughter, Im not too canned to fall in after

Cant disguise the actual gloom but you cant do nothing but consume
Until there isnt any room for anything worth while

D a e d a e d a e d a
Canned laughter, ooh, canned laughter, ooh, canned laughter, ooh

Sax break over a and d then e

Canned laughter, still echoing in the rafters
Canned laughter, I hang on the morning after
Cant disguise the way you feel, you see the razor blade and the reel
It dont do nothing to conceal that youre not having fun

Canned laughter, rings in my ears the morning after
Canned laughter, dont laugh baby you dont have to

(note the riff from discovering kapan and hey)
I can do without the rumour, Im not exactly in good humour
It feels like a malignant tumour growing in my heart
D a e d a e d a e d a
Canned laughter, ooh, canned laughter, ooh, canned laughter, ooh

Canned laughter (audio fx) /pre>
