Her smile makes me see

A world full of hope

A life full of glee

A life without tragedy


The past is long ago

For this dear old fello

But how can one grow

While living in misery


Happiness is hard for some

And not available for this old dope

How can one hum

A melody about calamity


There is a way

One must live every day

Fight the monsters of yesterday

And live for a better day
