The Lyrics

Famous phrase,
From those old standup days
But, seriously, Folks
Became the comic's line
When laughter would decline,
But, seriously, Folks
Vaudeville hook,
Next thing you know you're done
Land a tv gig, guest on Ed Sullivan,
Booked for fu-ture appears,
If there's applause and cheers,

Rim shot,
But seriously, Folks
Prat fall....whiz bang,
But seriously, Folks..

Take my wife,
Difference between a duck -,
But seriously, Folks..
Start to sweat,
Don't let 'em know you're stuck,
Keep tellin' jokes..
Audience - begins to stir and talk,
Spotlight becomes a blur,
Above's a circlin' hawk..
You need some faith to leap,
Come up with better bleep,

Stand your ground,
Resist the urge to hurl,
But seriously, Folks
Kid some guy,
Out.. datin' with his girl,
Church burned, Holy smokes!
Ask where's the babe,
I saw you with last night?
Oh, that's your sister there,
Then I guess it's alright..
Last night you sipped champagne,
Tonight it's cheap beer, plain,

Years go buzzin' by,
You're on that Improv stage
With other blokes..
Hosting the Carson show
And you're all the rage,
But seriously Folks
You crack up tough Bill and Myrtle
Make the big time, hop that hurdle
Tonight're Jay Len-o,

Now, each night for fans,
You smile and high five hands,

NOTE: I realize that, technically, there's two too many syllables in the title sub line...however, if you smoosh it, as if you're saying, "Seers-ly" most people pronounce it, anyway, it works
