Laughter-lifeI say, I say, I say,
Is there a laughter-life?
You know, a place for
Font of human humour:
From wind-break smile to
Knowing grin, then with sound -
Gooing and giggling,
Then with movement -
Crawling and wriggling...
... to stand-up comedy!
Now it's Time for playground banter -
Girl: You can't hear me because you have
sponge, jelly and custard in your ears.
Boy: I know, I'm a trifle deaf!
Now it's Time for pantomime -
Corny jokes and busty blokes,
Custard pies and slapping thighs,
Uproarious cheers in the rafters
And lots of 'Happy Ever Afters'!
Now it's Time for alternative gags -
Q. How many shrinks does it take to change a lightbulb?
A. Only one, but the lightbulb must want to change.
I say, I say, I say,
I'm going to die laughing.
