Look for the Silver Lining Lyrics - Judy Garland

Review The Song (2)



As sung by Judy Garland

As I wash my dishes, I'll be following a plan,
Till I see the brightness in ev'ry pot and pan.
I am sure this point of view will ease the daily grind,
So I'll keep repeating in my mind.

Look for the silver lining
When e'er a cloud appears in the blue.
Remember somewhere, the sun is shining
And so the right thing 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.

So always look for the silver lining
And try to find the sunny side of life.

Introduced by Marilyn Miller and Irving Fisher in the musical, Sally, 1920
and performed by Marilyn Miller in the film Sally, 1930:


Boy:
Please don't be offended if I preach to you a 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.

Refrain:
Look for the silver lining
When e'er a cloud appears in the blue.
Remember somewhere, the sun is shining
And so the right thing 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.

Girl:
As I wash my dishes, I'll be following 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.

Refrain:
Look for the silver lining
When e'er a cloud appears in the blue.
Remember somewhere, the sun is shining
And so the right thing 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.

Great Memories | Reviewer: Ruth | 12/5/10

I am now 72 years old and I first heard this song in a movie with the same title.....starring June Haver, Ray Bolger and Gordon McRae........I was about 9 or 10 years old and my Uncle had taken me and my Mother to see it.....my Uncle said I never moved off the edge of my chair. Just to-night my husband and I watched a movie from 1942 titled Random Harvest and for some reason it reminded me of Look for the silver lining.........I began to sing it in my head and then out loud and lo and behold I remembered almost all the words to it, but came in here to fill in the blanks..........what wonderful memories. Now I wish I could hear it, but for some reason my computer is not letting me play it. I've turned off my Pop-Up blocker but still to no avail.




The Sunny Side of Life | Reviewer: Cheryl McCall | 9/25/08

The first time I heard this song was when they used it before the beginning of the old movies on TNN. They had a guy singing just the stanza and changed the last line of it to: 'So always look for the silver lining, and try to find the sunny side of life.'
What a great song this is. I wish you'd add the tune to this web site so I could sing along with it.
