2003 london cast of anything goes – be like the bluebird lyrics

Loading...

[moon, spoken]
why, it’s like dillinger once told me: “it’s always darkest just before they turn on the lights”

(sung)
there’s an old australian bush song
that melba used to sing
a song that always cheered me when i was blue
even melba said this bush song
was a h-lluva song to sing
so be quiet whilst i render it for you

when your instinct tells you that disaster
is approaching you faster and faster
then be like the bluebird and sing
“tweet tweet, tra-la-la-la-la-la”

when you know you’re headed for the jailer
don’t allow the old face to look paler
but be like the bluebird and sing
“tweet tweet, tra-la-la-la-la-la”

be like the bluebird, who never is blue
for he knows from his upbringing
what singing can do

and though by other birdies in the boughs he
may be told that his efforts are perfectly lousy
he sings on and on ’til his troubles are through
“tweet tweet, tra-la-la-la-la-la”
oh!
