Though our troubles may to us seem endless,
I am certain quite
They will soon take flight
If we bravely fight.
Though we're all alone today and friendless
In this sorry plight,
We can surely win by hoping;
Nothing's ever gained by moping.


We must make the best of it
Till our journey's through;
And smile through all the rest of it
Though luck is overdue.
We must make a jest of it
Though our purse is flat.
When all our castles tumble down
And fortune seems to frown,
We must make the best of it
And let it go at that.
