G††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

When Carl laughs, ††it belches forth like a storm;

††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††† C†††††††††††† G

and when Arlene laughs, itís sweet and airy and warm;††††††

††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††G†††††††††††††††† G7††† C

and I love it when Laura laughs; it cheers me through and through;

†††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† D†† ††††††††††††††††††††††††GCG

but when Sally laughs, Iíve got to laugh too.


††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††

Now when my employer laughs, I try to laugh back, but it sounds like a croak;

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††† †††††††††††C†††††††††††† G†††††††††††

and when the leader of the free world laughs, I always wonder whoís in on the joke;

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††† G7†††††††† C

and when the people on TV laugh,†† Iím glad that they got their cue;

†††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† GCG

but when Sally laughs, Iíve got to laugh too.


La la verse.


†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††

Now this world is a veil of tears, oh yes, itís a strange and confusing place;

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††† C†††††††††††††† G†††

and some days I try to smile,but I know that I am only distorting my face;

††††††††††††††††††††††††††G†††††††††††† G7†††††††† C††††††††††

and some days I feel so lost, and I wonder if anythingís true;

†††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††† G

but when Sally laughs, Iíve got to laugh too.
