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.
