When things go wrong don’t frown or growl or sigh.
Life’s worth while, if you smile.
Your way you’ll surely win if you will grin
With Moxie ready you’ll go steady

Moxie, oh Moxie, me for you
I don’t know what I could do without you
As a drink you’re a hummer in winter or summer,
There’s something so pleasant about you.
Oh, you stand the test for you are the best.
I’ll send all the rest down the line
Let others keeps trying, you’re so satisfying.
There’s nothing like Moxie for mine.

For Moxie has a flavor all it’s own,
Good and pure, safe and sure.
Let ev’ry one proclaim it’s name and fame
In praises ringing while they’re singing
