I heard the story of smile & sigh
together they go, joined like Siamese thigh
Who's the funniest I ask 'em all
the young, the doubtful, the aged and the small
A buffoon, a clown, a joker
is most funny they frown
with virtue of make up,
of frills & lace
for the act of jabbers, & jibber it impends
ah! he's funniest men in town
Well, look closely you will find
the fact is given albeit-
"A joker never smile....
For he has tears in his eyes
while smile is painted on his face!"
..........And all the world, loves a clown
