Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems
Ya Ha Ho
Notes: words and music

Ya ha ho and a chuckle and a giggle,
And a great big laugh that comes from the middle,
Nobody knows what it's all about
But when it happens it knocks you out.
Ya ha ho, Ya ha ho,
Once it gets started it has to go.
I laugh, so do you,
And soon everybody's laughing, laughing,
Everybody's laughing too.
A laugh is something that you can't buy,
You can't make it happen if you try,
But some little thing or some little word
And everybody's laughing like a coo-coo bird.
