Ev'rybody's Happy When The Sun Shines.
Words and Music by W. R. Williams

What's the use of sighing,
What's the use of crying?
Don't you know that
all the clouds will soon roll by?
What they hand you, take it,
life is what you make it,
Try to think that
ev'ry day'll be Sunday by and by.
Even though some things go wrong,
Life to me is one grand song,
I'd like to live for ever and a day.
For you know Ev'rybody's
happy when the sun shines,
Happy the whole day long.
Though we get a little weary sometimes,
Let's "jolly" each other along.
Ev'rybody wears a smile of welcome,
Happy with grand good times.
Ev'ryone's in clover hearts are bubbling over,
Ev'rybody's happy when the sun shines.
Fate is always downing,
Ev'ry one who's frowning,
Why not be the sunshine
in your own homestead?
Then they're glad to greet you,
others glad to meet you,
Don't forget that when we die
we are a long time dead.
Only cranks complain and pout,
Wear a smile that won't wash out,
For life's a mighty sweet thing after all.
