Lyrics LOOK FOR THE SILVER LINING
WHENEVER A CLOUD
APPEARS IN THE BLUE.
REMEMBER SOMEWHERE
THE SUN IS SHINING
AND SO
THE RIGHT THING
TO DO
IS MAKE IT SHINE
FOR YOU.
A HEART,
FULL OF JOY
AND GLADNESS
WILL ALWAYS BANISH
SADNESS AND STRIFE,
SO ALWAYS
LOOK FOR THE SILVER LINING
AND TRY TO FIND
THE SUNNY SIDE
OF LIFE.

male verse:
PLEASE
DON'T BE OFFENDED
IF I PREACH TO YOU
A WHILE,
TEARS ARE OUT OF PLACE
IN EYES
THAT WERE MEANT
TO SMILE.
THERE'S A WAY
TO MAKE
YOUR VERY BIGGEST TROUBLES
SMALL,
HERE'S THE HAPPY SECRET
OF IT ALL.

female verse:
AS I WASH MY DISHES,
I'LL BE FOLLOWING
YOUR PLAN,
TILL I SEE
THE BRIGHTNESS
IN EV'RY POT
AND PAN.
I AM SURE
YOUR POINT OF VIEW
WILL EASE
THE DAILY GRIND,
SO I'LL KEEP REPEATING
IN MY MIND.

Lyrics AND WHEN I TOLD THEM
HOW BEAUTIFUL YOU ARE
THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE ME.
THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE ME!
YOUR LIPS,
YOUR EYES,
YOUR CHEEKS,
YOUR HAIR
ARE IN A CLASS
BEYOND COMPARE.
YOU'RE THE LOVELIEST GIRL
THAT ONE COULD SEE!
AND WHEN I TELL THEM,
AND I CERTN'LY
AM GOIN' TO TELL THEM,
THAT I'M THE MAN
WHOSE WIFE
ONE DAY YOU'LL BE.
THEY'LL NEVER BELIEVE ME.
THEY'LL NEVER BELIEVE ME
THAT FROM THIS GREAT BIG WORLD
YOU'VE CHOSEN ME!
