As recorded by JAN PREECE: The beggar man and the mighty king Are only different in name For they are treated just the same by fate Today a smile and tomorrow a tear We're never sure what's in store So learn your lesson before it is too late So be like I, hold your head up high Till you find a bluebird of happiness You will find greater peace of mind Knowing there's a bluebird of happiness And when he sings to you, though you're deep in blue You will see a ray of light creep through And so remember this, life is no abyss Somewhere there's a bluebird of happiness (SPOKEN: The poet with his pen The peasant with his plough It makes no difference who you are It's all the same somehow The king upon his throne The jester at his feet The shop girl, the actress The man on the street It's a life of smiles And a life of tears It's a life of hopes And a life of fears A blinding torrent of rain And a brilliant burst of sun A biting, tearing pain And bubbling, sparkling fun And no matter what you have Don't envy those you meet It's all the same It's in the game The bitter and the sweet And if things don't look so cheerful Just show a little fight For every bit of darkness There is a little bit of light For every bit of hatred There's a little bit of love For every cloudy morning There's a midnight moon above) So don't you forget You must search till you find the bluebird You will find peace and contentment forever If you will be like I, hold your head up high Till you see a ray of light and cheer And so remember this, life is no abyss Somewhere there's a bluebird of happiness ******************** As recorded by JO STAFFORD & GORDON MacRAE: JS: So be like I, hold your head up high Till you find a bluebird of happiness GM: You will find greater peace of mind Knowing there's a bluebird of happiness JS: And when he sings to you, though you're deep in blue GM: You will see a ray of light creep through JS: And so remember this, life is no abyss Somewhere there's a bluebird of happiness GM: For life is sweet, tender and complete BOTH: Since we found the bluebird of happiness JS: And when it's night, everything seems bright GM: Since we found the bluebird of happiness BOTH: Two hearts that beat as one 'neath a new found sun JS: We are in a world that's just begun BOTH: And when our youth is gone, love will linger on Since we found the bluebird of happiness (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2017)
