This Beautiful World

This Beautiful World

When cantankerous killjoys
Got me feeling down
There’s puppy dogs and rainbows
To eradicate my frown

So many wonderful things
In this beautiful world
Just soak up the sunshine
And listen for the birds

There were so many times
Life kicked me in the teeth
While nattering bullies
Laughed about my grief

So many wonderful people
In this beautiful world
So don’t get distracted
By discouraging words

When senseless disaster
Annihilates my dreams
I dust myself off
And find another scheme

So many wonderful things
In this beautiful world
Just soak up the sunshine
And listen for the birds

When life gets pernicious
And leaves your dreams in shards
Think of grandmas knitting sweaters
And friendly crossing guards

So many wonderful people
In this beautiful world
So don’t get distracted
By discouraging words
