Look a little on the sunnyside
Even when they say you're on the slide
And for a while, they'll say your records never make it
But in a while they're gonna be showering you with praises

They'll give you mediocre reviews
And put you in the underground for a while
But look a little on the funny, sunnyside of life
Look a little on the sunnyside

You sing 'em the blues
And then they ask for a happy tune
And when you start to smile
They'll say gimme dat rhythm and blues

And when you give 'em dat rhythm and blues
They'll simply smile and say
"We didn't want to hear you play
We didn't like you anyway"

It's very hard to please the people every single time
But look a little on the sunnyside

Look a little on the sunnyside
Even when you feel you want to hide
You've gotta laugh, don't let your critics ever upset you
'Cos for a while, the cynics will all be out to get you

You gotta be shrewd, you gotta be strong
You gotta convince yourself that you are not wrong
Whistle a tune and think of a catchy, happy, little song
And look a little on the sunnyside

It's very hard to please the people every single time
But look a little on the sunnyside

They're gonna put you down for a while
You gotta learn to grit your teeth and smile
Look a little on the funny, sunnyside of life
Look a little on the sunnyside
