Don't go 'round moping, hoping happiness will come That's not the way, it doesn't pay If you want happiness, just help yourself to some Why don't you try to take life the way I do Let the whole world sigh or cry I'll be high in the sky Up on top of a rainbow Sweeping the clouds away I don't care what's down below Let it rain, let it snow I'll be up on a rainbow Sweeping the clouds away I have learnt life's lesson Fighters who always win Are those who can take it Right on the chin and grin And so I shout to ev'ryone Find your place in the sun Up on top of a rainbow Sweeping the clouds away ++++++++++ As recorded by BOB & ALF PEARSON: Rain fall, let the rain fall, rain fall Don't go 'round moping, hoping happiness will come That's not the way, it doesn't pay If you want happiness, just help yourself to some Why don't you try to take life the way I do Let the whole world sigh or cry I'll be high in the sky Up on top of a rainbow Sweepin' the clouds away I don't care what's down below Let it rain, let it snow I'll be up on a rainbow Sweepin' the clouds away I have learnt life's lesson The fighters who always win Are those who can take it Right on the chin and grin And so I shout to ev'ryone Find your place in the sun Up on top of a rainbow Sweepin' the clouds away I'm gonna sweep them away Don't keep on fretting, getting miserable and sore Don't get downcast, just hold on fast Don't waste time hoping there'll be brighter days in store Just look behind some dark cloud and you'll find some Let the whole world sigh or cry I'll be high in the sky Right on top of a rainbow Sweepin' the clouds away Oh no, I don't care what's down below Let it rain, let it snow I'll be up on a rainbow Sweepin' the clouds away I have learnt life's lesson Fighters who always win Are those who can take it Right on the chin and grin, and grin And so I shout to ev'ryone You've got to go and find your place up in the sun Right on the top of a rainbow Sweepin' the clouds, sweepin' the clouds Sweepin' the clouds away (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
