Keep on the Sunny Side sung by the Whites

There's a dark and a troubled side of life
There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

Life is a Cabaret!....mood music Monday

"Come taste the wine, Come hear the band.
Come blow a horn, Start celebrating;
Right this way, Your table's waiting.

What good's permitting Some prophet of doom
To wipe every smile away.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
So Come to the Cabaret!"

A wonderful upbeat song, sung by the fabulous Liza Minnelli

"You've gotta have....Heart!All you really need is heart!
When the odds are sayin' you'll never win, that's when the grin should start!

Nuthin's half as bad as it may appear, wait'll next year and hope."
