Slapstick Comedy

(Lewis Franco & The Missing Cats)
Lewis Franco - Mom and Pop Music
When I bonk my head it’s a drama to me
When you bonk yours it's comedy
Slapstick comedy
Some of the old jokes make folks just roar
 
When you’re full of yourself, a drip or a heel
That’s when you’ll slip on a banana peel
Are you really such a big deal?
Says the banana peel, While we squeal
 
with laughter, But how about after 
the gag is through, What will you do?
Supposin’ you…should step on a rake
Or get hit with a pie in the face or a cake
 
Will you free yourself from the yoke of yourself
Or will you just make a joke of yourself
Me I'm hopin' myself
For some of that slapstick comedy  (harmony?) Yeah!
 
I wanna chuckle chortle chuckle guffaw yuk yuk tee hee hee
 
Here's to Tex Avery.  Aloha hey Tex
Here's to 3 Stooges going base over apex
Here's to Buster Keaton's train wrecks
Here's to that slapstick comedy
 
Will you free yourself from the yoke of yourself
Or will you just make a joke of yourself
Me I'm hopin' myself
Someone gets hit by a lightning bolt, flung with a catapult
Don’t take it as an insult  
That's comedy
Slapstick comedy, that's for me
