WELCOME! THRICE WELCOME ALL -
Behind these curtains, tightly drawn
Are Brother Masquers, tried and true,
Who have labored diligently, to bring to you
A Night of Mirth - and mirth ‘twill be,
But, mark you well, although no text we preach
A little lesson, well defined, respectfully, we’d teach
The lesson is this: Throughout this Life,
No matter what befall-
The best thing in this troubled world
Is LAUGHTER, after all-
And that’s the slogan of our club -
From cradle days to shroud
It brings the sunshine back again
And drives away the cloud
So - now, tonight, let joy be yours
Let LAUGHTER ring out clear!
I pray - be not too critical, in judgment, too severe!
These are all our pals we’re here to see,
There shafts of wit have zest! But should they
Touch a tender spot, remember - ‘Tis a Jest!...
And, as you leave our house tonight,
Midst Music, LAUGHTER, Din,
Remember, friends our slogan -
We laugh- WE LAUGH TO WIN!
