Looking On The Bright Side

(Howard Flynn)

Ray Noble & his New Mayfair Dance Orchestra


I'm looking on the bright side
Though I'm walking in the shade
Sticking out my chest, hoping for the best
Looking on the bright side of life

I'm waiting for the right tide
And if luck comes to my aid
Giving me a break, I shall be awake
Looking on the bright side of life

Today I'm in the shadow
Tomorrow maybe
The clouds will lift
And let the sun shift over to me

I'm looking on the bright side
Though today's all care and strife
I can wear a grin, sticking out my chin
Looking on the bright side of life
