I could say life is just a bowl of Jello...

Don't you love it when you find yourself whistling a happy tune you'd forgotten you knew? That happened to me this morning with "A cockeyed optimist" from South Pacific.



When the skies are a bright canary yellow
I forget ev'ry cloud I've ever seen,
So they call me a cockeyed optimist
Immature and incurably green.

I have heard people rant and rave and bellow
That we're done and we might as well be dead,
But I'm only a cockeyed optimist
And I can't get it into my head.

I hear the human race
Is fallin' on its face
And hasn't very far to go,
But ev'ry whippoorwill
Is sellin' me a bill,
And tellin' me it just ain't so.

I could say life is just a bowl of Jello
And appear more intelligent and smart,
But I'm stuck like a dope
With a thing called hope,
And I can't get it out of my heart!
Not this heart...
