Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh?
My dad said "Be and actor, my son, but be a comical one"
They'll be standing in lines for those old honky-tonk monkeyshines
You can study Shakspeare and be quite elite
You could charm the critics and have nothing to eat
Just slip on a banana peel, the world's at you feet
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make--
Make 'em laugh
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh?
My grandpa said "Go out and tell them a joke, but give it plenty of hoke"
Make 'em roar
Make 'em scream
Take a fall, butt a wall, split a seam
You could start by pretending your a dancer with grace
Then you wiggle 'till they're giggling all over the place
Then you get a great big custard pie in the face
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em--
What?--
My Dad--
They'll be standing in lines for those old honky-tonk monkeyshines
-------------
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh!
