Everybody Laughs

Words & Music by I. H. HARPER

Our lazy men stand round on the corners, And

Our great men are Abraham Lincoln,

Our young Turks they come from the mountains,

New York has a big steam roller,

John A Martin in the lower house,

England has a great big navy

Copyright 1912 by I.H. Harper 3119 Walnut St., Denver, Colo.


we call them our flirts, Some of our millionaire women Are wearing the hobble skirts.

William Howard Taft is the same, Don't forget Teddy Roosevelt, He's looking round for more fame.

Progressives in the air, As election day is coming, You can bet they'll all be there.

California has the same, When they start out the rolling, Colorado gets in the game

Congress Hucker is the same, When they tackle the sugar interest, Guggenheim will block the game.

Japan has got the same, When they get into battle, America get into the game.


Everybody laughs-3


Chorus

Is ev'rybody happy? Is ev'rybody glad? I want to see your sides ashaking, Whoop 'em up, and we'll laugh some more.
