Cheer up, Bri­an. You know what they say.
Some things in life are bad,
They can re­al­ly make you mad.
Oth­er things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chew­ing on life’s gris­tle,
Don’t grum­ble, give a whis­tle!
And this’ll help things turn out for the best . . .
And . . .

[the mu­sic fades in­to the song]

. . . al­ways look on the bright side of life!
[whis­tle]

Al­ways look on the bright side of life . . .
If life seems jol­ly rot­ten,
There’s some­thing you’ve for­got­ten!
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing,

When you’re feel­ing in the dumps,
Don’t be sil­ly chumps,
Just purse your lips and whis­tle⁠—​that’s the thing!
And . . . al­ways look on the bright side of life . . .

[whis­tle]
Come on!

[oth­er start to join in]
Al­ways look on the bright side of life . . .
[whis­tle]

For life is quite ab­surd,
And death’s the fi­nal word.
You must al­ways face the cur­tain with a bow!
For­get about your sin⁠—​give the au­di­ence a grin,
En­joy it⁠—​it’s the last chance any­how!

So al­ways look on the bright side of death!
Just be­fore you draw your ter­mi­nal breath.
Life’s a piece of shit,
When you look at it.

Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true,
You’ll see it’s all a show,
Keep ’em laugh­ing as you go.
Just re­mem­ber that the last laugh is on you!

And al­ways look on the bright side of life . . .
[whis­tle]
Al­ways look on the bright side of life
