VP_007792 Verse 1The sense of the ridiculous is very strong in me, I burst in fits of laughter At ev'ry thing I see, So when in formed my Mainlaw had fallen on her head, I didn't shed a tear, but I began to laugh instead. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho! I really can't stop laughing, I really can't, ah, ah, ho, ho! I really can't stop laughing, It tickles me, you know. Ha, 'ha! When Mainlaw falls on her head It's rude to shout with glee. If she fell thro' the floor I'd just have to roar, For ev'ry thing's funny to me. Verse 2I went to hear a lady friend recite, when she began A most pathetic piece about a poor old starving man, The audience wept and each one let their briny tears outpour, No tears I shed, I shrieked instead and rolled upon the floor. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho I really can't stop laughing, I really can't, oh, oh, ho, ho! I really can't stop laughing, It tickles me you know. Ha, ha! To laugh about a starving man, is rude, that I'll agree, But at tales of woe I laugh, ho, ho! For ev'rything's funny to me.
