Something Funny

by Eric Chaet

There’s something funny
‘bout people in suits
something serious, too—
there’s something funny
‘bout a Friday or a Monday
& something serious, too.

There’s something funny!
something funny!
something serious, too—
there’s something funny!
something funny!
& something serious, too.

There’s something funny
’bout mothers & fathers
something serious, too—
there’s something funny
’bout weddings & funerals
& something serious, too.

There’s something funny! something funny!
something serious, too—
there’s something funny! something funny!
& something serious, too.

There’s something funny ’bout Christmas & New Year
something serious, too—
there’s something funny ’bout stockings & reindeer
& something serious, too.

There’s something funny! something funny!
something serious, too—
there’s something funny! something funny!
something serious, too.

There’s something funny ’bout show-biz
something serious, too—
there’s something funny ’bout farming & banking
& something serious, too.

There’s something funny! something funny!
something serious, too—
there’s something funny! something funny!
& something serious, too.
