Tom & Mary Submit Correct Lyrics

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 they find the strength to find the will to testify
That for the benefit of Tom and Mary
There's something we can't hide anymore?

Everybody here knows the story some with fabricated extra parts
See the sisters shout in whispers feeding hot air to the sparks
Put a damper on the party it will lighten up this room
But for the benefit of Tom and Mary, we've got to see the truth today

Ms. Suthernson says "Here they come"
And all the chatter and the smiles, they come undone
If you could could hear a pin drop on the carpet floor
Everyone's pretending not 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
Haven't found out already and yet 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 gotta let the truth be known
