A thing of magical beginnings Wells up inside like a jelly building up wobbliness And come out in all the strangest, wonderful ways. The cackle, the chuckle The snigger, the giggle The chortle, the holler The hohoho and the hehehe And all the variations!
The first little snortle From the first little child Broke into a million pieces Of light and colour and peace They became the first of the fairies Who love to laugh And love to eat sweets And love to have fun.
The first little cackle Brought forth the naughty people With hooked noses And warts, And big black pots To cook things in.
The first booming HoHO Made our Christmas cheer More merry With red fluffy hats Black boots And red bags of toys.
The first laugh you give Becomes all these things Becomes what you love And what you should cherish Laugh all day All night For laughter is Magic.
