MY FATHER LOVED WATCHING COMEDY

 

My father grew up watching comedy
On those early black and white tv sets.
Like 'Amos and Andy',
Before it was politically incorrect.
My father loved watching comedy.

 

My father loved watching American comedy.
Jackie Gleason just about made him burst,
Abbott and Costello with their
'Who's on First?'
My father loved watching comedy.

My father loved Italian comedians.
Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis,
And Chico Marx,
Even though the Marx Brothers were Jewish.
My father loved watching comedy.

 

My father loved old time comedians,
Don Knotts, Phil Silvers and Sid Caesar, too.
Jimmy Durante and his
'Inka-dinka-doo.'
My father loved watching comedy.

 

My father really loved those Three Stooges,
Larry, Curly, Moe ­ even Shemp.
'gnahhhyyyye! And 'whoop whoop whoop',
Man, who could forget?
My father loved watching comedy.

 

My father loved watching the Little Rascals,
Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Spanky and Our Gang,
Jack Benny and Rochester,
And who remembers Arnold Stang?
My father loved watching comedy.

 

My father loved physical comedy,
Pratfalls, and guffaws, and that ol' slapstick,
Laurel & Hardy, vaudeville,
Even the chicken with the rubber neck.
My father loved watching comedy.
