Please don't be offended if I preach to you while,
Tears are out of place in eyes that were meant to smile,
There's a way to make your very biggest troubles small,
Here's the happy secret of it all.
As i wash my dishes,
I'll be follwing your plan,
Till I see the brightness in ev'ry pot and pan.
I am sure your point of view will ease the daily grind,
So i'll keep repeating in my mind.
Look for the silver lining
Whene'er a cloud appears in the blue
remember somewhere the sun is shining
And so the right thin to do is make it shine for you.
A heart full of joy and gladness
Will always banish sadness and strife
So always look for the silver lining
And try to find the sunny side of life
