Life is very rough and tumble,
For a humble deserves
One can betray ones troubles never
Whatever occurs.
Though I never really grumble,
Life's a jumble indeed
And in my efforts to succeed
I've had to formulate a creed.
I believe in doing what I can
In crying when I must
In laughing when I choose
Hey ho, if love were all
I should be lonely.
I believe the more you love a man,
The more you give your trust,
The more you're bound to lose.
Although when shadows fall
I think if only
Somebody splendid really needed me
Someone affectionate and dear
Cares would be ended if I knew that he
Wanted to have me near.
But I believe that since my life began
The most I've had is just a talent to amuse.
Hey ho, if love were all.
Frequently I put a bit by, save for a rainy day
Nobody here can say to what indeed
The years are leading
Though fate often treats me meanly
I serenely persue
A little mirage in the blue
Determination helps me through
But I believe that since my life began
The most I've had is just a talent to amuse.
Hey ho, if love were all.
