Old Laughing Jim

The town sad to say not the same without him
He was a great character old Laughing Jim
In the town cemetery his last remains lay
He died five weeks ago on the sixteenth of May
He was one who did live life in a carefree way
Perhaps he is laughing in heaven today
A happy old bloke without children or wife
He was one who did laugh a lot in his life
On his eighty fifth year he breathed his last
Death without warning came upon him fast
The neighborhood without him a much duller place
He always did have a big smile on his face
A happy old fellow free of conceit or guile
It was never an effort to him for to smile.
