Song#: 5

Album
Name of Song: The Irresistable Groucho Marx

Groucho Marx became a legend,
Although it was a long time ago,
He did some funny movies with his brothers,
Before he had his own TV show.

His ability to insult anyone he chose to,
Was always funny because it never really stuck,
He got away with it because his intention was so humorous,
To be that funny you tend to simply love.

Chorus
He could take any obvious life situation,
Make it funny even though it really was not,
His astute ability to observe and compute funny,
Made him one of the greatest comedians that ever lived.

He also had an ability to keep it going,
Where anyone else would make the joke and then move on,
Not Groucho, he would keep pushing it and pushing it,
His uniqueness of making humor stood him apart.

He would lead his brothers into such funny situations,
Where they would do outrageous skits where we would laugh,
Then he would invent another situation from out of nothing,
Which is why everybody loved him like they did.

Chorus
He could take any obvious life situation,
Make it funny even though it really was not,
His astute ability to observe and compute funny,
Made him one of the greatest comedians that ever lived.
