When things get bad and I have worries on my mind,
When I feel sad and life just doesn't seem too kind!
I say, 'so what,' it shouldn't matter much to me
'Don't give a jot, things must get better, you will see.'
Well, I am broke and find it hard to pay my way.
I make a joke, and this is what I mean to say,
'So life's a bitch and everything seems to go wrong.
I am not rich, but something's sure to come along.'
When my heart breaks, when it's been battered and abused,
My body aches, but I shan't let them see I'm bruised.
I'll force a grin and I'll pretend I'm having fun,
But cry within and never let them think they've won.
And soon enough, sunshine and laughter I shall feel.
And once again the happiness will be for real.
