"LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE"

Verse 1
My dad had a car, it never gave him trouble,
It was the best old car in the town.
Then one day we traveled to a city far away;
When we got there, our car broke down.

Verse 2
So we locked up the car, and we went to look for help,
And on the way we met a friend of dad's.
[Spoken:] Hi! I haven't seen you in a long time!
He fixed the car for free, and we met his family;
Everything worked out for good in the end.

Chorus
I like to look on the bright side,
Try to look on the bright side,
Never hurt my eyes for looking on the bright side.
I like to look on the bright side, and when everything goes wrong,
I still get along by looking on the bright side.

Bridge
When things don't go right, don't fuss and whine;
Some good's gonna come, just give it time!
Hey, diddle, diddle, play that fiddle!

Verse 3
Maybe you're feeling down and you're wearing a frown,
'Cause your best friend can't come out and play.
Now, remember then, at least you have a friend,
And you can see him again another day.

Verse 4
Perhaps you're sick in bed with a cold in your head,
And you can't do all the things you want to do.
But you have lots of time now to write a line
To your friend who cares so much about you.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge 2
Let's see that smile, wipe away your frown.
Look on the bright side, don't look down.
Here we go!

Repeat Chorus

I still get along by looking on the bright side.
