Randy Newman – Laugh And Be Happy lyrics
I know what's going on here
Ain't no mystery
Y'all have lost faith
In yourselves
It's as clear as it can be

You can whine all you want to
Drown in your misery
Or you can listen to me
Listen to me

Laugh and be happy
It's a simple thing to do
Believe in your dreams
And your dreams
Will come true for you

There'll be a red sun
Shining in a sky so blue
Blackbirds singing in the trees

There's a real silver lining
Up there for me and you
Listen to me
Listen to me

Now the country
That we're living in
Happy Immigrants:
You mean the good ol' usa?
That's right!
It's never been
About keeping you out
It's about inviting you in
And letting you play

Laugh and be happy

Don't you ever wear a frown
Get right back on your feet
Whenever they knock you down

You've got to laugh and be happy
Smile right in their face
'Cause pretty soon
You're gonna take their place

They'll come whack whack
Whackin' like old
Man trouble
Whacking on your front door
They try to send you
Packin' on the double
But you ain't going away no more

Laugh and be happy
Don't you ever wear a frown
Don't let the bastards
Grind you down

Laugh and be happy
Now listen to what I say
Everything's going to go your way
You'll be on top of the world
