Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

 

Patsy: (spoken) Oh, cheer up sire, you know what they say.

Arthur: (spoken) What do they say, Patsy?

 

Patsy: (sings) Some things in life are bad

They can really make you mad

Other things just make you swear and curse.

When you're chewing on life's gristle

Don't grumble, give a whistle

And this'll help things turn out for the best...

 

And...

 

always look on the bright side of life (whistle)

Always look on the right side of life.

 

(spoken) You give it a try

 

Arthur tries to whistle but can't

 

Patsy: (sings) If life seems jolly rotten

There's something you've forgotten

And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.

When you're feeling in the dumps

Don't be silly chumps

Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

 

And...

 

Patsy and Knights:

Always look on the bright side of life (whistle)

Always look on the right side of life. (whistle)

 

Patsy:

For life is quite absurd

And death's the final word

You must always face the curtain with a bow.

Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin

Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

 

Arthur: Always look on the bright side of death (whistle)

Just before you draw your terminal breath  (whistle)

Life's a piece of shit

When you look at it

Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.

 

Patsy: You'll see it's all a show

Keep 'em laughing as you go

 

Arthur:

Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

 

Patsy, Knights and the Knights of Ni: Always look on the bright side of life (whistle)

Always look on the right side of life. (whistle)

 

(Tap dancing and musical interlude)

 

Always look on the bright side of life

 

(Tap dancing)

 

Always look on the bright side of life.

 

(Tap dancing)

 

Patsy and Knights:  Always look on the bright side of life (whistle)

Always look on the right side of liiiiiife.

 

Patsy and Arthur: Life is quite absurd

And death's the final word

You must always face the curtain with a bow.

   

An old crone has just entered with a shrubbery on a cart.

 

Arthur: (spoken) Excuse me, it that a shrubbery?

 

Crone: (spoken) Oh yes, I’m throwing it out. The cat won’t leave it alone.

 

Arthur: (spoken) Well what a stroke of luck, I’ll take it off your hands.

 

Arthur and Patsy: Always look on the bright side of life

Always look on the briiiiiiight…

Side of life

Side of life

Side of liiiiiiife.
