Track Name: The Laughing Policeman 2016
I know a young policeman
He's always on our street.
A strong, good-natured, helpful man
He really is a treat.

He’s such a kind policeman
He's never known to frown.
And everybody says
He is the happiest man in town!

Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

He laughs upon point duty
He laughs upon his beat.
He laughs with everybody
When he's walking down the street.
He never can stop laughing
He says he's never tried.
But once he drove a poor man home
They laughed until they cried!

His jolly face it wrinkled
And then he shut his eyes.
He opened up his laughing mouth
To an enormous size!
He said, “I’ll help you neighbor,
That’s why I am a cop
He told him jokes to cheer him up
They laughed for twenty blocks

Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Solo

So if you chance to meet him
While walking 'round the town.
Shake him by his kindly hand
Say you’re glad that he’s around.
His eyes will beam and sparkle
He'll chuckle with delight.
And then you'll start him laughing
With all his blessed might!

Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Track Name: We Circle Around (Daevid Allen)
Well, you can blame the rich
And you can blame the government
You can blame the church religions
‘Cause they seem well bent
You can blame everybody
And you can blame yourself, too
But then take a look and see
Just what that makes you feel inclined to do

Chorus:
World peace starts in the kitchen
World peace starts in your bed
World peace starts in your own back yard
In your body, in your heart, and in your head

And you can criticize yourself
And me and everybody near ya
You can be a cynical skeptic
But the people only fear ya
Maybe judge me judge everybody judge the judge
Scared to be a failure
But if you open up your heart and share your feelings
Well, the world will show you that, that’s what you might think, but

Repeat Chorus

We circle around, we circle around
The boundaries of the earth
We circle around, we circle around
The boundless universe
Throwing our hands up to the boundless sky
Throwing our hands up we are meant to fly
Higher, higher, higher and higher
Further, further, further, and further
We circle around, we circle around
We circle around, we circle around
The boundaries of the earth
We circle around, we circle around
The boundless universe
Throwing our hands up to the boundless sky
Throwing our hands up we are meant to fly
Higher, higher, higher and higher
Further, further, further, and further

We circle around!
We circle around!
We circle around!
We circle around!
We circle around!
