    Lyrics

    When the skies are brighter canary yellow
    I forget ev'ry cloud I've ever seen,
    So they called 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
