Though the world is so full of a number things,
I know we should all be as happy as
But are we?
No, definitely no, positively no.
Decidedly no. Mm mm.
Short people have long faces and 
Long people have short faces.
Big people have little humor
And little people have no humor at all!
And in the words of that immortal buddy
Samuel J. Snodgrass, as he was about to be lead
To the guillotine

Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh?
My dad said "Be an actor, my son
But be a comical one
They'll be standing in lines
For those old honky tonk monkeyshines"

Now you could study Shakespeare and be quite elite
And you can charm the critics and have nothin' to eat
Just slip on a banana peel 
The world's at your feet 
Make 'em laugh 
Make 'em laugh 
Make 'em laugh 

Make 'em
Make 'em laugh 
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh 
My grandpa said go out and tell 'em a joke 
But give it plenty of hoke 

Make 'em roar 
Make 'em scream 
Take a fall 
But a wall 
Split a seam 

You start off by pretending 
You're a dancer with grace 
You wiggle 'till they're 
Giggling all over the place 
And then you get a great big custard pie in the face 
Make 'em laugh 
Make 'em laugh 
Make 'em laugh 

Make 'em laugh 
Make 'em laugh 
Don't you know
all the, wants? 
My dad
They'll be standing in lines
For those old honky tonk monkeyshines 

Make 'em laugh 
Make 'em laugh 
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh? 

Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ah ha ha ha ha ha 
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha 
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha 
Make 'em laugh, ah ah!
Make 'em laugh, ah ah!
Make 'em laugh, ah ah!

Make 'em laugh 
Make 'em laugh 
Make 'em laugh!
