Tiny Tim – The Laughing Policeman lyrics

know a fat ole policeman he's, always on our street A
fat old jolly, red-faced man he, really is a treat Hes
too fine for a policeman he's, never known to frown And
everybody says he is the happiest man in town Laughter
laughs upon his duty he, laughs upon his beat He
laughs at everybody when he's walking in the street He
never can stop laughing he, says he'd never tried But
once he did arrest a man and laughed until he died Laughter
His, jolly face had wrinkled and, then he shut his eyes He
opened his great mouth it, was a wonderous size He
said I must arrest you I, didn't know what for And
then he starting laughing until, he cracked his jaw Laughter
if you chance to meet him while walking round the town Just
shake him by his ole fat hand and give him have a crowd His
eyes beam and sparkle he'll, gurgle with delight And
