Two medicines, I need them every day
Two medicines to keep the doctor away
One to drown my sorrows
One to face my fears
Laughter and tears
Laughter and tears
Two medicines, I swear they ain't no crime
Two medicines and they don't cost a dime
They heal the body, cleanse the soul
Help me master self-control
Two medicines have helped me through the years
Laughter and tears
Laughter and tears
Two medicines, life's little pleasures
Two medicines to help relieve the pressure
Pressure from without, pressure from within
Pressure in my bloodstream, pressure on my skin
Pressure from my elders, pressure from my peers
Laughter and tears
Laughter and tears
There was a man so masculine
He would not take his medicine
No pain could penetrate his pride
He kept his feelings locked inside
His final years were such a waste
That when he died his dear wife place
Upon his grave this epitaph:
His life was so funny he forgot to laugh
Two medicines are all we really need
Two medicines, effectiveness guaranteed
They aid communication, make for better sex
You can mix the two together with no bad side effects
Two medicines to help you through the years
Laughter and tears
Laughter and tears
Two medicines, I need them every day
Two medicines to keep the doctor away
One to drown my sorrows, one to face my fears
Laughter and tears
Laughter and tears
