He laughs while he's on duty He laughs while on his beat
G C
He laughs at everybody When he's walking down the street
C F
He never can stop laughing He says he's never tried
G7 F G7 F Dm G7 C
But once he did arrest a man And laughed until he cried!

Chorus

C F
His jolly face is wrinkled And then he shut his eyes
G C
He opened up his great big mouth It was a wonderous size!
C F
He said: "I must arrest you!" He didn't know what for
G7 F G7 F Dm G7 C
And then he started laughing Until he cracked his jaw!

Chorus

C F
Now if you chance to meet him While walking 'round the town
G C
Shake him by his fat ol' hand And give him half a crown

His eyes will glint and sparkle He'll gurgle with delight

And then you'll start him laughing With all his girth and might!
