THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN
Charles Penrose

I know a fat old policeman
He's always on our street.
A fat and jolly red-faced man
He really is a treat.

He's too kind for a policeman
He's never known to frown.  
And everybody says
He is the happiest man in town!.   

He laughs upon point duty  
He laughs upon his beat.
He laughs at everybody
When he's walking in the street.  

He never can stop laughing
He says he's never tried.
But once he did arrest a man
And laughed until he cried!   

Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.   

Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho.  Ha  ha ha ha ha ha.  

His jolly face is wrinkled
And then he shut his eyes.
He opened his great big mouth
It was a wonderous size!   

He said "I must arrest you!"
He didn't know what for.
And then he started laughing
Until he cracked his fat old jaw.

Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

So if you chance to meet him
While walking 'round the town.  
Shake him by his fat old hand
And give him half a crown.  

His eyes will beam and sparkle
He'll gurgle with delight.
And then you'll start him laughing
With all his blessed might!

Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
