They can really make you mad

When you're chewing

on life's gristle,don't grumble

And this'll help things turn out

for the best   and

   Am               D      
If life seems jolly rotten,
        G                   Em    
there's something you've forgotten
    Am                   D   
And that's to laugh and smile
              G   
and dance and sing
            Am             D     
When you're feeling in the dumps,
     G         E     
Don't be silly chumps
     Am                         
Just purse your lips and whistle
           D7           
that's the thing     and

G      Em           Am   
Always look on the bright
D7      G    Em  Am  D7       
side of life           come on
G      Em          Am   
Always look on the light
D7      G    Em  Am  D7
side of life           

    Am              D    
For life is quite absurd,
    G                 Em  
And death's the final word
         Am              D      
You must always face the curtain
       G  
with a bow
   Am             D  
Forget about your sin
         G           E  
give the audience a grin
Am      
Enjoy it
                         D7     
it's your last chance anyhow  so

G      Em           Am   
Always look on the bright
D7      G     Em  Am  D7
side of death           
G      Em        Am 
Just before you draw
     D7        G     Em  Am  D7
your terminal breath           

  Am              D   
Life's a piece of shit
G                Em
when you look at it
Am                 D             
Life's a laugh and death's a joke
      G  
it's true
       Am             D   
You'll see it's all a show
         G               E 
keep 'em laughing as you go
     Am                          
Just remember that the last laugh
      D7       
is on you   and
