Laugh - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
Words and music by
Philip margo, mitchell margo, henry medress and jay siegel
Ev'ry face that I see is all wrapped up in frowns,
And unfortunately, it kind of gets me down.
Laugh,'cause the music is funny
Yeah, the bass sounds off-beat.
Ain't that neat.
Laugh,
When you lose all your money,
Or you can't find your shoes
To cover your feet.
It's not so hard to see exactly what I'm after.
Sometimes a tear should fall, but I require giggles and chuckles
Laugh,
When you're keepin' a secret
And it seems to be known
By the rest of the world.
Laugh,
When you go to a party,
And you can't tell the boys
From the girls.
Every face that I see is all wrapped up in frowns
And unfortunately, it kind of gets me down.
Laugh,
At the things that are wrong.
If you thinks it's this song,
Then laugh.
Then laugh.
Then laugh.
[repeat and fade]
