If you say all the good times are gone
If you say this rain will keep rainin' on
I'll walk along with my head held high
I'll find a song and I'll sing it to the sky

I may be wrong but I'll live 'til I die
That's the way it's gonna be
Wait and see

Even though you say hard times knock at my door
Though you say I'll never smile any more
I just imagine that I'm ten feet tall
Then if I try I can climb the highest wall

It doesn't matter if I slip down and fall
That's the way it's gonna be
Wait and see

Even though you say I've reached the end of my row
Though you say my times are all running low
It's been so long since I tried to frown
That 'Old Man Trouble' will never get me down

It's all that easy when you know where you're bound
That's the way it's gonna be
Wait and see, just you wait and see

Even though you say all the good times are gone
Though you say this rain will keep rainin' on
I'll walk along with my head held high
I'll find a song and I'll sing it to the sky

I may be wrong but I'll live 'til I die
That's the way it's gonna be
Wait and see, just you wait and see
