Laughter Is The Best Medicine



Grin, Grin, Grin by Catherine Pulsifer

A good laugh can take away the blues
It is up to us, we can choose.
You always feel better when you
Have a good laugh, that is so true.

Find a reason to laugh each day
Otherwise you’ll find yourself going gray.
Don’t hold it in,
Laugh and grin, grin, grin!


A Laugh by  Ripley Dunlap Saunders

A laugh is just like sunshine,
It freshens all the day.
It tips the peak of life with light
And drives the clouds away.
The soul grows glad that hears it
And feels its courage strong;
A laugh is just like sunshine
For cheering folks along.

A laugh is just like music,
It lingers in the heart,
And where its melody is heard,
The ills of life depart;
And happy thoughts come crowding
Its joyful notes to greet;
A laugh is just like music
For making living sweet!


Laughter by Henry R. Elliot



Why Don’t You Laugh

Poet: Unknown

Why don’t you laugh, dear boys, when troubles come,
Instead of sitting ’round so sour and glum?
You cannot have all play,
And sunshine every day;
When troubles come, I say, why don’t you laugh?

Why don’t you laugh, dear girls? ‘Twill ever help to soothe
The aches and pains. No road in life is smooth;
There’s many an unseen bump,
And many a hidden stump
O’er which you’ll have to jump. Why don’t you laugh?

Why don’t you laugh? Don’t let your spirits wait;
Don’t sit and cry because the milk you’ve split;
If you would mend it now,
Pray let me tell you how:
Just milk another cow! Why don’t you laugh?

Why don’t you laugh, and make us all laugh, too,
And keep us mortals all from getting blue?
A laugh will always win;
If you can’t laugh, just grin –
Come on, let’s all join in! Why don’t you laugh?


Laughter by Edgar A. Guest

Laughter sort o’ settles breakfast better than digestive pills;
Found it, somehow in my travels, cure for every sort of ills;
When the hired help have riled me with their slipshod, careless ways,
An’ I’m bilin’ mad an’ cussin’ an’ my temper’s all ablaze,
If the calf gets me to laughin’ while they’re teachin’ him to feed
Pretty soon I’m feelin’ better, ’cause I’ve found the cure I need.

Like to start the day with laughter; when I’ve had a peaceful night,
An’ can greet the sun all smilin’, that day’s goin’ to be all right.
But there’s nothing goes to suit me, when my system’s full of bile;
Even horses quit their pullin’ when the driver doesn’t smile,
But they’ll buckle to the traces when they hear a glad giddap,
Just as though they like to labor for a cheerful kind o’ chap.

Laughter keeps me strong an’ healthy. You can bet I’m all run down,
Fit for doctor folks an’ nurses when I cannot shake my frown.
Found in farmin’ laughter’s useful, good for sheep an’ cows an’ goats;
When I’ve laughed my way through summer, reap the biggest crop of oats.
Laughter’s good for any business, leastwise so it seems to me
Never knew a smilin’ feller but was busy as could be.

Sometimes sit an’ think about it, ponderin’ on the ways of life,
Wonderin’ why mortals gladly face the toil an care an’ strife,
Then I come to this conclusion—take it now for what it’s worth
It’s the joy of laughter keeps us plodding on this stretch of earth.
Men the fun o’ life are seeking—that’s the reason for the calf
Spillin’ mash upon his keeper—men are hungry for a laugh.


Four Things by Dorothy Parker

Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.
Four be the things I’d been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.

Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.
Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.


The Happy Man by Ellen Johnston

Laugh on, laugh on! thou happy man,
While life is young and bright.
For it is not in old withered age that man can
And delight;
Laugh on – and be what thou hast been –
And when that thou art gone,
Thy memory will be cherished in records yet unknown.


Sing A Song by Florence Adella Bertels

Sing a song of victory,
A heart brimful of cry
Can be soon changed to laughter,
A song will drown a sigh.

Sing of truth that fails not,
Of God who never sleeps;
Sing with confidence in Him
Who His people keeps.

Sunlight chases shadow.
Healthful thoughts chase gloom;
Then good cheer and courage
In the heart find room.

Sing a song of victory,
Life’s strings all in tune;
Singing Faith will soon transform
Night to day’s full noon.


Laugh A Little Bit by Edmund V. Cooke

Here’s a motto just your fit.
Laugh a little bit.
When you think you’re trouble hit.
Laugh a little bit.
Look misfortune in the face.
Brave the beldame’s rude grimace;
Ten to one ’twill yield its place
If you have the wit and grit
Just to laugh a little bit.

Keep your face with sunshine lit; –
Laugh a little bit.
Gloomy shadows off will flit
If you have the wit and grit
Just to laugh a little bit.

Cherish this as sacred writ,
Laugh a little bit.
Keep it with you, sample it
Laugh a little bit.
Little ills will sure betide you,
Fortune may not sit beside you.
Men may knock and fame deride you.
But you’ll mind them not a whit
If you laugh a little bit.


I Love A Laugh by Effie May

I love a laugh, a wild, gay laugh,
Fresh from the fount of feeling.
That speaks a heart enshrined within,
Its joy revealing.

I love a laugh, a wild, gay laugh:
O, who would always sorrow,
And wear a sad and woful face.
And fear the morrow?

I love a laugh – this world woiild be,
At best, a dreary dwelling,
If heart could never speak to heart,
Its pleasure telling.

I love a laugh – it cheers the heart
Of age, bowed down with sadness,
To hear the music in the tones
Of childhood’s gladness.

Then frown not at a wild, gay laugh.
Or chide the merry-hearted;
A cheerful heart and smiling face
Should ne’er be parted.


The Road To LaughterTown

Poet: Katherine D. Blake

Would ye learn the road to Laughtertown,
O ye who have lost the way?
Would ye have young heart though your hair be gray?
Go learn from a little child each day.
Go serve his wants and play his play,
And catch the lilt of his laughter gay.
And follow his dancing feet as they stray;
For he knows the road to Laughtertown,
O ye who have lost the way.
