Eric Idle – Always look on the bright side of life

Some things in life are bad

They can really make you mad

Other things just make you swear and curse.

When you’re chewing on life’s gristle

Don’t grumble, give a whistle

And this’ll help things turn out for the best…

And…always look on the bright side of life…

Always look on the light side of life…

If life seems jolly rotten

There’s something you’ve forgotten

And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing.

When you’re feeling in the dumps

Don’t be silly chumps

Just purse your lips and whistle – that’s the thing.

And…always look on the bright side of life…

Always look on the light side of life…

For life is quite absurd

And death’s the final word

You must always face the curtain with a bow.

Forget about your sin – give the audience a grin

Enjoy it – it’s your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death

Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life’s a piece of shit

When you look at it

Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true.

You’ll see it’s all a show

Keep ’em laughing as you go

Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life…

Always look on the right side of life…

(Come on guys, cheer up!)

Always look on the bright side of life…

Always look on the bright side of life…

(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)

Always look on the bright side of life…

(I mean – what have you got to lose?)

(You know, you come from nothing – you’re going back to nothing.

What have you lost? Nothing!)

Always look on the right side of life…

  1. I freaking LOVE Monty Python! 😀

    • I do too. 😀 They have created some great comedy moments. Eric Idle writes some very funny songs. Check him out on YouTube if you haven’t done it already. 🙂
