No. 20 - Song - Carbonnet - "The Laughing Song"

MIDI File

Carbonnet: In London at the present day
I love to spend my money
"Pardonnez-moi, mes amis, pray"
If much I find that's funny
Parbleu! You must not think I chaff
But oh, you do amuse me!
Don't look at me! You'll make me laugh!
Ah! There you go! Excuse me!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
C'est tres drole! N'est-ce pas?
Oh, I say!
I believe I could laugh all the day!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
How on earth is a fellow to stop?
I am sure I shall laugh till I drop!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Oh! I think I could laugh all the day!
   
  I thought the girls were stiff and prim!
Of course, I didn't know them,
For seated in the twilight dim
Some happy hours I owe them.
I say: "Mon ange!" I squeeze a hand!
What need to mention more is?
But if I laugh you'll understand
I know some funny stories!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
C'est tres drole! N'est-ce pas?
Oh, I say!
I believe I could laugh all the day!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
How on earth is a fellow to stop?
I am sure I shall laugh till I drop!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Oh! I think I could laugh all the day!
   
  The plays I see, the books I read
Of modern woman's capers,
They make me yawn: they do indeed!
They're worse than comic papers!
So books and plays alike I shun
That cause a head-ache after;
Pourquoi? I want some jolly fun
To split my sides with laughter!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
C'est tres drole! N'est-ce pas?
Oh, I say!
I believe I could laugh all the day!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
How on earth is a fellow to stop?
I am sure I shall laugh till I drop!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Oh! I think I could laugh all the day!
