Always Gay and Free, Boys.

I'm always gay and free, my boys,
Wherever I may go,
A fig for every grief, I say,
And ev'ry petty woe;
I laugh at what the world calls care,
Am always gay and free,
Look always on the brighter side,
That is the style for me.

Chorus.
I'm always gay and free, boys,
Happy as can be, boys,
That the style for me, boys,
Always gay and free-I'm free.

The fleeting years go swiftly by,
And life is but a span,
To treat it's troubles lightly,
Is by far a better plan;
Brave hopes will cheer us on our way.
On land or stormy sea,
Look always on the brighter side,
That is the style for me.-Chorus.

Tho' troubles often bore us,
And the world seems dark and drear,
We've better days before us
If we only persevere;
Behind life s darkest clouds
A silver lining we may see,
Looking always on the brighter side.
That is the 6tyle for me.-Chorus.

Tho' gay and free, as I have said,
You always may depend,
That I will do my best to soothe
The troubles of a friend;
A kindly word works wonders,
I am sure you will agree.
Look always on the brighter side,
That is the style for me.-Chorus.
