Tom and Mary

This song is by Ben Folds Five and appears on the album Ben Folds Five (1995) and on the album Naked Baby Photos (1998).

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 we find the strength to find the will to testify
that for the benefit of Tom and Mary
there's something we can't hide any more

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 to day

Mrs. Power'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 no to hear them 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.
If they haven't found out already
and if the seams all seem to show,
that for the benefit of Tom and Mary,
for the benefit of Tom and Mary,
for the benefit of Tom and Mary
we got to let the truth be known
