Monty Python Always Look on the Bright Side of Life Lyrics

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 light side of life
(Whistle)

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...

Always look on the bright side of life
(Whistle)
(Come on!)
Always look on the right side of life
(Whistle)

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

So always look on the bright side of death
(Whistle)
A-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
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughin as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

And...
Always look on the bright side of life
(Whistle)
Always look on the right side of life
(C'mon Brian, cheer up)
Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life

(Worse things happen at sea you know)

(I mean - what have you got to lose?
You know, you come from nothing
- you're going back to nothing
What have you lost? Nothing)

Always look on the right side (I mean) of life

(What have you got to lose?
You know, you come from nothing
- you're going back to nothing
What have you lost?)

Always (nothing!) look on the right side of life

(Nothing will come from nothing, ya know what they say
Cheer up ya old bugga c'mon give us a grin!
There ya go, see!)

Always look on the right side of life...
(Cheer up ya old bugger)
(C'mon give us a grin!)
(There ya go, see!)
