PARDON ME (WHILE I LAUGH) (Music: Billy Heagney / Lyrics: Jules Von Tilzer & Arthur Terker) The Happiness Boys (Billy Jones & Ernest Hare) - 1925 Were going to sing a song for you, it's not a song of love There's not a word that speaks of mush and none 'bout stars above We've had enough of songs like that, I'm sure you will agree So here's the thing were going to sing, it's foolish as can be A chorus girl hates anyone to ask her out to eat Hah-hah-hah-hah, pardon me, hah-hah-hah, while I laugh A Scotsman is the first one who will volunteer to treat Hah-hah-hah-hah, pardon me, hah-hah-hah, while I laugh The chauffeurs and the traffic cops, they get along so fine And all the chauffeurs think the coppers really are divine The coppers blow them kisses when they pass before it's time Hah-hah-hah, pardon us while we laugh The alcohol sold nowadays is for external use Hah-hah-hah-hah, pardon me, hah-hah-hah, while I laugh The fat girls should eat candy, it's the best way to reduce Hah-hah-hah-hah, pardon me, hah-hah-hah, while I laugh The first child of a married couple brings them great delight But when they wanta get some sleep, it cries with all it's might Then hubby says, "You stay in bed, I'll walk with him all night" Hah-hah-hah, pardon us while we laugh In every song you've ever heard there's been a second verse We tried to write one for this thing, but it got worse and worse We worked on it all Summer through, the Winter, Spring and Fall And then we said, "We will not write a second verse at all" Today the girls all love to sit at home each night and sew Hah-hah-hah-hah, pardon me, hah-hah-hah, while I laugh They never ride in taxis and they hate to see a show Hah-hah-hah-hah, pardon me, hah-hah-hah, while I laugh The nuts let loose in Ford cars never occupy a seat Hah-hah-hah-hah, pardon me, hah-hah-hah while I laugh They're putting fans in phone booths now, so we won't feel the heat Hah-hah-hah-hah, pardon me, hah-hah-hah, while I laugh The Chinese run chop-suey places that are so unique And if you want spaghetti, the Italians you should seek I never yet have found a restaurant run by a Greek Hah-hah-hah, pardon us while we laugh (Ad-lib patter and laughter) Pardon us while we laugh!
