OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
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

Allemande and weave
And...Always look on the bright side of life
(Swing, promenade)
Always look on the light side of life


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru four hands around will do
With the corner girl you'll dosado
Swing thru and then boy run right again
Ferris wheel you move right in you know
Pass thru, touch 1/4, boys run right and then
Boys fold, swing and promenade
And always look on the bright side of life


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
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

Allemande and weave
And...always look on the bright side of life
(Swing, promenade)
Always look on the light side of life

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life
 
 

Some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad
Other things can 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
Always look on the bright side of life

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
Always look on the bright side of life

Life is quite absurd, and death's the final word
We 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
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit, when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true
You can see it's all a show, keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you, and...

Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life...

Lyrics by Eric Idle.
Recorded by Bruce Cockburn.
