From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oh_My_Pa-Pa_%28O_Mein_Papa%29:

"O mein Papa" is a German song, as related by a young woman remembering her beloved, once-famous clown father. It was written by Swiss composer Paul Burkhard in 1939 for the musical Der Schwarze Hecht (The Black Pike), reproduced in 1950 as Feuerwerk (Fireworks) to a libretto by Erik Charell, Jürg Amstein, and Robert Gilbert. In 1954, that musical was turned into the film Feuerwerk with Lilli Palmer.

Under the original German title, an instrumental version by trumpeter Eddie Calvert topped the UK Singles Chart in 1954,[1] and was also a Top 10 hit in the U.S.

It was adapted into English by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons under the title "Oh! My Pa-Pa".[2] A recording by Eddie Fisher with Hugo Winterhalter's orchestra & chorus was made at Webster Hall, New York City, on December 12, 1953. It was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-5552 (in USA)[3] and by EMI on the His Master's Voice label as catalog number B 10614.

Fisher's recording became a #1 hit on the U.S. Billboard charts in 1954. Fisher's version also made the UK Top 10; thus, in the UK, Calvert's version was number one while Fisher's made the top 10, but missed the top spot, and in the U.S., the opposite occurred. Calvert's version has a further claim to fame as the first UK number one to be recorded at the most successful of all British recording studios, Abbey Road.[1] The song returned to Abbey Road when Brian Fahey conducted an instrumental version in the summer of 1960 to be used as a backing track for Connie Francis' English-Yiddish recording for her album Connie Francis Sings Jewish Favorites. Francis overdubbed her vocals in Hollywood. In June 1966, Francis overdubbed the same the playback once more, this time with the original German lyrics for her German concept album Melodien, die die Welt erobern...

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/15/13:

A fellow bought a new Mercedes and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him.

"There's no way they can catch a Mercedes," he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 90, 100.... Then the reality of the situation hit him.

"What am I doing?" he thought and pulled over.

The cop came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car. "It's been a long day, this is the end of my shift and it's Friday the 13th. I don't feel like more paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven't heard before, you can go."

The guy thinks for a second and says, "Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back!"

"Have a nice weekend," said the officer.

Oh My Pa-Pa

Music by Paul Burkhard for a 1939 musical called Der Schwarze Hecht  - Reproduced in 1950 as Feuerwerk (Fireworks)
Lyrics by Erik Charell, Jürg Amstein, and
Robert Gilbert

Recorded by Eddie Fisher, 1954

Oh Mein Papa Oh My Pa-pa

Papa wie ein Pfeil
sprang hinauf auf die Seil,
eh la hopp, eh la hopp, eh la hopp.
Er spreizte die Beine
ganz breit auseinand’,
sprang hoch in die Luft
und steht auf die Hand
Eh la hopp, eh la hopp, eh la hopp.

Oh, mein Papa war eine wunderbare Clown.
Oh, mein Papa war eine große Kinstler.
Hoch auf die Seil, wie war er herrlich anzuschau'n!
Oh, mein Papa war eine schöne Mann.

Er lachte: “Haha, haha”
und machte: Haha haha.
Dann sagt’ er: “Haha haha”
und rief: “Eh la hopp, eh la hopp
eh la hopp, eh la hopp
eh la hopp, eh la hopp
eh la hopp, eh la hopp.”

Ei, wie er lacht, sein Mund, sie sein so breit und rot
Und seine Aug' wie Diamanten strahlen.
Oh mein Papa war eine wunderbare Clown.
Oh mein Papa, war eine schöne Mann.

Er ritt auf die Seil
und rief er mir zu
“eh la hopp, eh la hopp, eh la hopp.”
Das konnte er machen
zwölfmal in ohne mieh;
er lachte dazu
und fürchte sich nie.
Eh la hopp, eh la hopp

Oh, my Papa, to me he was so wonderful,
Oh, my Papa, to me he was so good.
No one could be so gentle and so lovable,
Oh, my Papa, he always understood.

Gone are the days when he could take me on his knee
And with a smile he'd change my tears to laughter.

Oh, my Papa, so funny, so adorable,
Always the clown so funny in his way.
Oh, my Papa, to me he was so wonderful,
Deep in my heart I miss him so today.
