Steven's Last Night in Town

Original Artist: Ben Folds

Everyone gather round now,
Sing us a song,
Just in case by tomorrow it happens he is gone,
For two weeks and seven days our fair foreign friend,
I have this feeling we might never see Steven again.

But we thought he was gone and now he's come back again,
Last week it was funny and now the joke's wearing thin,
'Cause everyone knows now,
That every night now will be Steven's last night in town.

He's charmed everyone here,
Except Tamara Easter who later revealed to him her innermost secrets,
Won us over with stories about Linda McCartney,
Lost points with the ladies for saying he couldn't love a woman with cellulite.

But we thought he was gone and now he's come back again,
Last week it was funny and now the joke's wearing thin,
'Cause everyone knows now,
That every night now will be Steven's last night in town.

We were talking 'bout something,
Seems like was funny,
And then Steven got quiet,
I think Steven was mad,
Maybe he wasn't mad but we felt very strange,
In the moment but the moment was passed and forgotten about.

But we thought he was gone and now he's come back again,
Last week it was funny and now the joke's wearing thin,
'Cause everyone knows now,
That every night now will be Steven's last night in town.
