LA-DI-DA-DI-DA (Noel Gay (m) Desmond Carter (l) 1932) as recorded by Henry Hall & The BBC Dance Orchestra (vocal - Les Allen & Les Bermon) November 1932 London If you start the day without a smile, You food is indigestible and life looks vile, And you have spots dancing before your eyes, There is still one hope for you, Though everything's detestable the whole day through; I'll tell you what's certain to clear the skies! Try a little deep breathing, You'll find it will help you along. Take a deep breath, hold it, Then burst into song! If you crawl out of bed And you feel you're nearly dead, And you don't care a hoot if you are, Try this, "La-di-da-di-da-di-da-di-da!". If you've corns on your feet And you can't get a seat In a bus or a train or a car, Try this, "La-di-da-di-da-di-da-di-da!". Try to rejoice, Don't be depressed! Lift up your voice, Throw out your chest! If you get rather stout And your hair's falling out And you feel twice as old as you are, Try this, "La-di-da-di-da-di-da-di-da!". If you can't sleep a wink And you can't get a drink And you think you'll be sick and you are, Try this, "La-di-da-di-da-di-da-di-da!". If you're tired of your life And your work and your wife And your clothes and your kids and your car, Try this, "La-di-da-di-da-di-da-di-da!". Rise on your toes, Turn to the south, In through the nose, Out through the mouth! If you find that the cat Has selected your hat As the place to become a mama, Try this, "La-di-da-di-da-di-da-di-da!". (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2013)
