No. 32 - Song - I can't refrain from laughing

MIDI File

I can't refrain from laughing for I'm tickled by their plan,
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
A geisha's much too clever for a noble of Japan,
And if they are successful they'll be able then to boast
With pardonable glee
Wherever they may be
How neatly they have got this haughty gentleman on toast!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
I'm tickled by a trifle it is true, true, true,
A funny little failing I have got.
I cannot see a joke that others do, do, do,
And often laugh at something I should not.
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
And often laugh at something I should not.
It doesn't matter what,
Oh, it doesn't matter what!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
 
Now marriage is a matter far too serious for chaff
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
And yet it's so amusing that it only makes me laugh.
I'm longing to be married in the oriental mode
Yet when I stand beside
My charming little bride
Of course I shall be happy
But I know I shall explode.
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
I'm tickled by a trifle it is true, true, true,
A funny little failing I have got.
I cannot see a joke that others do, do do,
And often laugh at something I should not.
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
And often laugh at something I should not.
It doesn't matter what,
Oh, it doesn't matter what!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
