That's Where the Laugh Comes In.
Copyright. 1865, by Wm. A. Pond & Co.
Words and Music by Eastburn.

Augustus Dom Pedro, a handsome young man,
Who travelled on his shape, I am told,
Determined to get. if he possibly could,
A wife who had plenty of gold.
So tilling his noddle with many a plan,
By which he the lady could win;
He nit upon one which I shortly shall tell,
. And "That's where the laugh comes in."

"That's where the laugh comes in, ha! ha!
That's where the laugh comes in,
'Twas owing all to the income tax,
And that's where the laugh comes in

He borrowed a watch and a massive gold chain,
Rings, studs, and in fact all he could;
Then sold them for greenbacks, and shortly before
The income assessor he stood.
He handed the money to one of the clerks,
Who entered his name with a grin,
He thought him a nabob, and set him down such,
And shortly "The laugh comes in. " -Chorus.

While eagerly scanning the paper next day,
To his great delight did appear
His name, with his income in figures set down,
At full twenty thousand per year.
The plan was successful, he married the girl,
And tho' he was not worth a pin,
His wits got a wife who had plenty for both,
And "That's where the laugh comes in." -Chorus.

The father enraged at the terrible "sell,"
Determined the young man to shoot;
But turning the matter again in his mind,
Concluded Augustus to boot.
When the calmer he grew, he thought he would do
The best that he could for his kin,
So he gave them the cash, and they cut quite a dash,
And "That's where the laugh comes in. "-Chorus.
