  • It's Hilarious (monafaemae)
  • Song Lyrics:
    I was walking down the High Street
    When I heard footsteps behind me
    And there was a little old man (Hello)
    In scarlet and grey, shuffling away (laughter)
    Well, he trotted back to my house
    And he sat beside the telly (Oaah..)
    With his tiny hands on his tummy
    Chuckling away, laughing all day (laughter)

    Oh, I ought to report you to the Gnome office
    (Gnome Office)
    Yes
    (Hahahahaha)

    Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
    "I'm a laughing Gnome and you can't catch me"
    Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
    "I'm a laughing Gnome and you can't catch me"
    Said the laughing Gnome

    Well, I gave him roasted toadstools and a glass of dandelion wine (Burp, pardon)
    Then I put him on a train to Eastbourne
    Carried his bag and gave him a ***
    (Haven't you got a light, boy?)
    "Here, where do you come from?"
    (Gnome-man's land, hahihihi)
    "Oh, really?"

    In the morning when I woke up
    He was sitting on the edge of my bed
    With his brother whose name was Fred
    He'd bought him along to sing me a song

    Right, let's hear it
    Here, what's that clicking noise?
    (That's Fred, he's a "metrognome", haha)

    Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
    "I'm a laughing Gnome and you don't catch me"
    Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
    "I'm a laughing Gnome and you can't catch me"

    (Own up, I'm a gnome, ain't I right, haha)
    "Haven't you got a gnome to go to?"
    (No, we're gnomads)
    "Didn't they teach you to get your hair cut at school? You look like a rolling gnome."
    (No, not at the London School of Ecognomics)

    Now they're staying up the chimney
    And we're living on caviar and honey (hooray!)
    'Cause they're earning me lots of money
    Writing comedy prose for radio shows
    It's the-er (what?)
    It's the Gnome service, of course

    Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
    "I'm a laughing Gnome and you don't catch me"
    Ha ha ha, oh, dear me

    (Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
    "I'm a laughing Gnome and you can't catch me"
    Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
    "I'm a laughing Gnome and you can't catch me")

    (One more time, yeah)
