Lyrics SO BE LIKE I,
HOLD YOUR HEAD
UP HIGH
TILL YOU FIND
A BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS.
YOU WILL FIND
GREATER PEACE
OF MIND
KNOWING
THERE'S A BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS.

AND WHEN HE SINGS
TO YOU
THOUGH YOU'RE DEEP
IN BLUE,
YOU WILL SEE
A RAY OF LIGHT
CREEP THROUGH.

AND SO REMEMBER THIS,
LIFE IS NO ABYSS,
SOMEWHERE
THERE'S A BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS.

LIFE IS SWEET,
TENDER AND COMPLETE
SINCE WE FOUND
THE BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS.
WHEN IT'S NIGHT,
EV'RYTHING
SEEMS BRIGHT
SINCE WE FOUND
THE BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS.

TWO HEARTS THAT BEAT
AS ONE
'NEATH
A NEW FOUND SUN,
WE ARE IN A WORLD
THAT'S JUST BEGUN!

AND WHEN OUR YOUTH
IS GONE,
LOVE WILL LINGER ON
SINCE WE FOUND
THE BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS.

Lyrics DEARIE,
DO YOU REMEMBER
WHEN WE WALTZED
TO THE SOUSA BAND?
MY,
WASN'T THE MUSIC
GRAND?
CHOWDER PARTIES
DOWN BY THE SEASHORE
EV'RY FOURTH O' JULY.
TEST YOUR MEMORY,
MY DEARIE,
DO YOU RECALL
WHEN HENRY FORD
COULDN'T EVEN FIX
THE RUNNING BOARD
UNDER A CHANDLER SIX?
DEARIE,
LIFE WAS CHEERY
IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS
GONE BY.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
IF YOU REMEMBER,
WELL, DEARIE,
YOU'RE MUCH OLDER
THAN I.

DEARIE,
DO YOU REMEMBER
WHEN WE STAYED UP
ALL NIGHT
TO GET PITTSBURGH
ON A CRYSTAL SET?
KEYSTONE MOVIES,
COOGAN AND CHAPLIN,
MADE YOU LAUGH
AND THEN CRY.
TEST YOUR MEMORY,
MY DEARIE,
DO YOU RECALL
WHEN ORVILLE WRIGHT
FLEW AT KITTY HAWK?
WELL, TAKE IT FROM ME,
I WOULD RATHER WALK!
DEARIE,
LIFE WAS CHEERY
IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS
GONE BY.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
IF YOU REMEMBER,
WELL, DEARIE,
YOU'RE MUCH OLDER
THAN I.

DEARIE,
DO YOU REMEMBER
WHEN MOST GENTS
OWNED A PAIR OF SPATS,
WING COLLARS
AND DERBY HATS?
LOVELY LADIES
WINGING THEIR BUSTLES
MADE THOSE GENTLEMEN SIGH.
TEST YOUR MEMORY,
MY DEARIE,
DO YOU REMEMBER
WATCHING JOHN L.
WIN EV'RY FIGHT?
'CUZ NOBODY DUCKED
FROM SULLIVAN'S RIGHT!
DEARIE,
LIFE WAS CHEERY
IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS
GONE BY.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
IF YOU REMEMBER,
WELL, DEARIE,
YOU'RE MUCH OLDER
THAN I.

DEARIE,
DO YOU REMEMBER
WHEN THE MET
LET CARUSO SING?
MY,
DIDN'T THE RAFTERS RING?
DIAMOND JIM WAS THERE
IN THE HORSESHOE
CATCHING EVERYONE'S EYE.
TEST YOUR MEMORY,
MY DEARIE,
DO YOU RECALL
WHEN GILDA GRAY
DID THE SHIMMY-SHAKE?
AND THAT WAS THE START
OF THE FRISCO QUAKE.
DEARIE,
LIFE WAS CHEERY
IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS
GONE BY.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
IF YOU REMEMBER,
WELL, DEARIE,
YOU'RE MUCH OLDER
THAN I.

DEARIE,
DO YOU REMEMBER
HOW THEY LOVED
HARRY LAUDER'S ACT?
MY,
WASN'T THE PALACE PACKED?
JENNY LIND
PRESENTED BY BARNUM
SANG HER SWEET LULLABY.
TEST YOUR MEMORY,
MY DEARIE,
CHICAGO ALL IN FLAMES
SURE CAUSED
A TERRIFIC ROW.
THEY BLAMED IT
ON MISSUS O'LEARY'S COW!
DEARIE,
LIFE WAS CHEERY
IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS
GONE BY.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
IF YOU REMEMBER,
WELL, DEARIE,
YOU'RE MUCH OLDER
THAN I.

DEARIE,
DO YOU REMEMBER
MAN O' WAR
WINNING EVERY RACE?
HE RAN
AT A RECORD PACE.
RIN TIN TIN
IN SERIAL CHAPTERS
ALWAYS RESCUED THE GUY.
TEST YOUR MEMORY,
MY DEARIE,
DO YOU RECALL
WHEN BABE RUTH
PITCHED
FOR THE BOSTON TEAM?
HE SURE
HAD A CURVE THAT WAS LOADED
WITH STEAM.
DEARIE,
LIFE WAS CHEERY
IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS
GONE BY.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
IF YOU REMEMBER,
WELL, DEARIE,
YOU'RE MUCH OLDER
THAN I.

Lyrics BLUE HEAVEN
AND YOU AND I,
AND SAND
KISSING A MOONLIT SKY.
A DESERT BREEZE
WHISPERING A LULLABY,
ONLY STARS ABOVE YOU
TO SEE I LOVE YOU.
OH, GIVE ME
THAT NIGHT DIVINE,
AND LET MY ARMS
IN YOURS ENTWINE.
THE DESERT SONG,
CALLING,
ITS VOICE
ENTHRALLING,
WILL MAKE YOU MINE.

Lyrics THERE'S A SONG
IN THE LAND OF THE LILY
EACH SWEETHEART
HAS HEARD WITH A SIGH.
OVER HIGH GARDEN WALLS
THIS SWEET ECHO FALLS
AS A SOLDIER BOY
WHISPERS GOODBYE.

SMILE THE WHILE
YOU KISS ME SAD ADIEU,
WHEN THE CLOUDS ROLL BY
I'LL COME TO YOU.
THEN THE SKIES
WILL SEEM MORE BLUE,
DOWN IN LOVER'S LANE,
MY DEARIE.

WEDDING BELLS
WILL RING SO MERRILY,
EV'RY TEAR
WILL BE A MEMORY.
SO WAIT AND PRAY
EACH NIGHT FOR ME
TILL WE MEET AGAIN

THOUGH GOODBYE
MEANS THE BIRTH OF A TEARDROP,
HELLO
MEANS THE BIRTH OF A SMILE.
AND THE SMILE WILL ERASE
THE TEAR BLIGHTING TRACE
WHEN WE MEET
IN THE AFTER AWHILE.
