Lyrics

Johnny:
Well you can
Put on some big shoes and dance all around
If you wanna make someone laugh
You can make funny faces and hang upside down
If you wanna make someone laugh
If you make them laugh you can tell
Everyone around you feels swell
You can slap on a red nose and act like a clown
If you wanna make someone laugh

Johnny:
Okay, okay.

Basil:
I'm starting to see spots. Is that normal?

Johnny:
It's not really...Ok. give us...

Johnny:
You can wiggle your arms while you're running in place
If you wanna make someone laugh
You can even invade a friend's personal space
If you wanna make someone laugh
When you tell a joke that's first-rate
Everyone around you feels great
You can throw a banana-cream pie in your face
If you wanna make someone laugh

Johnny:
How was that, Basil?

Basil:
(sneezes)

Johnny:
Comedy is funnier in twos. Come on.

Johnny:
You can cover your head with a chocolate fondue
If you wanna make someone laugh
Play a crazy old song on a yellow kazoo

(kazoo plays)

Now if people laugh every day
They can chase their troubles away
All you need is a bottle of seltzer or two
When you make someone laugh they feel better
It's true
And it's fun to make someone laugh with you
