When all the sky's are grey and It's a rainy day
Think of the birdies in spring
When your up to your neck in hot water
Be like the kettle and sing
Tell that umberella man he's just an also ran
Think of a kid on a swing
When your up to your neck in hot water
Be like the kettle and sing
You'll find that life's always got a funny side
So come over on the sunny side
And wear a great big smile
It makes your life worth while
You'll have the world on a string
When your up to your neck in hot water
Be like the kettle and sing
............
When your trouble's are boiling over
Consult this recipe
Everybody will be in clover, happy as can be
When all the sky's are grey and It's a rainy day
Think of the birdies in spring
When your up to your neck in hot water
Be like the kettle and sing
Tell that umberella man he's just an also ran
Think of a kid on a swing
When your up to your neck in hot water
Be like the kettle and sing
You'll find that life's always got a funny side
So come over on the sunny side
And wear a great big smile
It makes your life worth while
You'll have the world on a string
When your up to your neck in hot water
Be like the kettle and sing
