stand in front of the mirror
hold your shoulders back
powder your face lily white
the old fashioned way
photograph of your father
watches proudly from the metal box
step right up to his big shoes
ahhh
oooh
ahhh

this is what it takes to
make them laugh
use your whole whole body
just to make them laugh
and you lost your shadow
but you can make them laugh
and you want to crumble
but you make them
laugh
ooooh oooh
ahh ahhh
ahhh ahhh

and your mother
flew above the crowd
with her sequins on
your father caught her falling
with his red nose on it was circus love
they left the show to raise you
but it’s all you want
and it’s all you know
paper flowers blooming head to toe
aahhhh
oooh ahhhhhh

this is what it takes
just to make them laugh
and you study hard
in the dry summer grass
you are quiet and tall
and you see your life
through a laser light
and they start to laugh
and your heart fills in
and you see what he’s been
you move your body
just to make them laugh
this is what it takes
just to make them laugh
just to make them laugh

ahhhh ahhhh
ahhhh ahhhh

ahhhh ahhh
ahhh ahhhh

ahhhh ahhhh
ahhhh ahhhh

ahhhh ahhh
ahhh ahhhh
