Beneath the weight of the world I can be found
Among the chaos and the wheel, scattered all around.
On the wild windy wave I'm tossed, cast away and lost,
Now I understand what those sad songs say.
Make up your mind to be happy,
Life is a merry-go-round.
If you miss out this time,
Don't let it fret your mind,
Love will come round in the end.
Make up your mind to be happy,
Life is a merry-go-round.
If an' you miss out this time,
Don't let it fret your mind,
Love will come round in the end.
Between the devil and the deep blue we find ourselves
Often Out of the frying pan and into, left on the shelf.
Borne willy nilly here and there when our hearts are full of care,
Oh my, now we understand what those sad songs say,
Sad, sad songs they say.
Make up your mind to be happy,
Life is a merry-go-round.
If an' you miss out this time,
Don't let it fret your mind,
Love will come round in the end.
Makin' up your mind to be happy
You've gotta make up your mind
Makin' up your mind
Makin' up your mind
Makin' up your mind
Makin' up your mind ...
Make up your mind to be happy
