"Sing a song"

"Sing a song

Most all our worldly troubles
Are only drifting bubbles
Most all our cares and sorrows
Are gone with our tomorrows
So don’t you let them fret you
Or some day they will get you
When skies are grey stop work and play
And laugh your cares away

Just smile and swing along
The while you sing a song
Your troubles fade away
When you are gay
If all your cares appear
As dark as night
You’ll find it won’t be long
With just a song, they’ll be all right
And when you’re feeling blue
And so unhappy too
When all your skies are grey
And shadows fall
Things are not what they seem
You’ll find them just a dream
If you will sing a song
Swing along too

Just turn your tears to laughter
And joy will follow after
If May days you remember
You’ll soon forget December
Instead of asking pity
Just say you’re sitting pretty
Then you will see that life will be
A wondrous melody

Just smile and swing along
The while you sing a song etc."

Music and Lyrics by Charles Chaplin, Abe Lyman and Gus Arnheim, 1925.
