Lyrics:

"Make 'em Laugh"

music by Nacio Herb Brown; lyrics by Arthur Freed

 Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh.
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh.
My dad said, "Be an actor, my son,
But be a comical one."
They'll be standin' in lines
For those old honky tonk monkeyshines.
Or you could study Shakespeare and be quite elite,
And you charm the critics and have nothin' to eat.
Just slip on a banana peel, the world's at your feet.
Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh.

Make 'em... Make 'em laugh.
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh?
My grandpa said, "Go out and tell 'em a joke,
But give it plenty of hoke."
Make 'em roar. Make 'em scream.
Take a fall, butt a wall, split a seam.
You start off by pretending you're a dancer with grace.
You wiggle 'till they're gigglin' all over the place.
And then you get a great big custard pie in the face.
Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh.

Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh.
Don't you... all the...
My dad...
They'll be standin' in lines
For those old honky tonk monkeyshines.
...
Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh.
Make 'em laugh.

Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh. Make 'em laugh.
