Laughter with a
Early every Saturday morn, 8.30 in the a.m.
(Or sometimes it’s 8.36, cos people get there then)
People come from miles around, some from far, some near,
Just to start their weekend off with a dose of cheer.
We’re tall and short, young and older, even robust and thin,
Artists, musos, and believe it or not, even businessmen. (Well, businesspeople for that matter)
Some who work with the elderly, some with the disabled,
Some who teach, and we all learn, and some just won’t be labeled.
Bushwalkers, cyclists, motor bikers….many do drive cars,
And one or two notoriously spend Friday nights in bars (no names mentioned).
All shapes and sizes, walks of life, we come from round this place,
The common denominator is we like smiles on our face.
Our numbers are great, we’ve very regularly seventeen,
Rarely five, sometimes ten, high teens we’ve often seen.
We’re over six years old now, and our health is ooh la la,
And we think it’s fantastique to “HO HO HA HA HA”.
Our laughs are numerous you know, too many here to mention,
But often people passing by, give us their attention.
Jack-in-the-box Laugh (and even Jill), the stripper Laugh’s a fave,
Rollercoaster, Lawnmower, and the Hot Coals laugh most days.
We’ve menageries of animal laughs up here in this town,
Monkey, Loin, we’ve even had a Sloth just lying ‘round.
Kookaburra, Elephant, and even Meerkats,
Come to think of it, I don’t recall we’ve ever had a Bat.
So if you ever find yourself early one Saturday
In central Vic, you must come round, join in and say g’day.
You can be sure you’ll be welcome at the Bendigo Laughter Club!
