The Bright Side of Life

from by Michael Holland

lyrics

Hoopin’ and a holler
Crying about a dollar
Has shown me
The bright side of life

Work a job
It don’t pay
Borrow ‘til another day
Has shown me
The bright side of life

Has shown me
Has shown me
Has shown me
The bright side of life

Up at dawn
Late to bed
Tryin’ to keep
My children fed
Has shown me
The bright side of life

Hoopin’ and a holler
Worryin’ about tomorrow
Has shown me
The bright side of life

Has shown me
Has shown me
Has shown me
The bright side of life

Ask the preacher
He don’t know
“Look it up in the Bible”
He told me.

Spent the weekend
fooling around
Smoking up and having fun
It told me.

Time is passing
Hear the toll
Wind up old and cynical
Or as happy as a clam.
