Song LyricsEdit

Chi-town, Beantown

Every in between now

Lookin' for the Funniest People.

They got from Little Rock

Anywhere the bus stops

Lookin' for the Funniest People.

Lookin' for the Funniest....People!

Different shining (Woman: Ooo. Bop. Bop)

Short people tall people (Woman: Ooo. Bop. Bop)

Silly and bizzare people (Woman: Ooo. Bop. Bop)

Come on and be a star, people!
