Outtake from:              Two Little Girls In Blue  1921 (S)


We must try to make the best of it
When trouble comes along,
Never sigh, though everything seems wrong.
Though we feel
Our lot is terrible,
It is rel-
Ly not unbearable;
What is more,
Let's keep on smiling; for-


Somehow I feel there's bound to be
A happy ending;
So no matter what may happen,
Let's look trouble in the eye.
Although at present fate seems
Fearful and unbending,
Something tells me that to ev'ry sorrow
Soon we'll say good-bye.
So let's be cheerful, while we may;
Never tearful, ever gay.
Just forget that now the skies are gray.
Let's smile and keep on waiting for
The happy ending,
For it is on the way;
And some fine day,
It will come to stay.
