Count Your Blessings Re-Revisited

Here’s another tune for you using the idiom “Count your blessings.” Read the lyrics below:

Count Your Blessings and Smile

by George Formby

Though plans may often go wrong, let ’em hear your voice.
You’ll find that rhythm and song make the world rejoice.
Make life go with a swing, laugh at trouble and sing.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, count your blessings and smile!

While you’re playing your part, keep a song in your heart.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, count your blessings and smile!
Sing low, sing high, isn’t it grand beating the band?
Who wants to die? Oh what a happy land, hi!
Show them what you can do, make a hullabaloo.
Ho-ho-ho-ho-ha-ha-ha-ha, count your blessings and smile.

You got to get together, swing it around!
Get together, swing it around!
Make life go with a swing and a smile,
Laugh at trouble and sing all the while.
Count your blessings and smile!

While you’re playing your own little part
You’ve gotta keep a song in your heart,
Da-di-da-doh-di-da-da-dah, count your blessings and smile!

Sing low, sing high, isn’t it grand beating the band?
Who wants to die? Oh what a happy happy land, hi!
Show them what you can do, make a hullabaloo.
Ho-ho-ho-ho-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Da-di-da-doh-di-da-da-dah!

Count your blessings! (one,  two,  three)
Count your blessings! (four,  five,  six)
Count your blessings and smile!

Make life go with a swing and a smile,
Laugh at trouble and sing all the while.
Count your blessings and smile!

While you’re playing your own little part,
Keep a song in your heart.
Count your blessings and smile!
Sing low, sing high,
Who wants to die?
Show them what you can do,
Make a hullabaloo.
Count your blessings and smile!

Ho-ho-ho-ho-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Count your blessings and smile!
Smile! Come on! Smile!
