Lyrics:

heard his words, so loco, so loud
counted the crowd, plenty
same one-liners struck like a clock
but they were not funny

been at it so long should be paid time and a half
working and working just to work up a laugh
if i can't do it alone, i'll hire a staff
working together just to work up a laugh

some faces red, some faces remained
plain like they're playin' poker
is a joke the right word
for what's spoken by a joker

they wanted a conquering hero, they got a hack
working and working just to work up a laugh
quick, catch that comic, he killed, 'twas a blood bath
that bit, it murdered, too bad nobody laughed

hear the kids, they're cracking up
playing tough, breaking
happy madness, or worse
just the earth shaking

clowns to kings and dreamers to dust
dreaming it's just a bad shtick
call the doc, their jokes are all sick
they're lickin' their lips, it's tragic

i'm thinkin' of goin' back to school to study the craft
working and working just to work up a laugh
cuz we wasted centuries on electoral math
and all we had to do's to work up a laugh
never too late to learn to work up a laugh
working together just to work up a laugh
