Sung by Charles Vivian.

I gayly sing from day to day,
A careless man am I;
As long as I can pay my way.
Misfortune I defy.
And then with spirit ever gay,
I da the best I can,
When trouble comes upon my way.
To bear it like a man.

I gayly sing from day to day.
And do the best I can,
When trouble comes upon my way.
To bear it like a man.

We're told that since the world began.
That's many years ago,
If money did not make the man,
It made the "mare to go."
Of comforts I have quite enough.
Although my wealth is small,
I know that I am better off,
Than folks with none at all.-Chorus.

If fortune on a friend doth shine,
I love him none the less;
I never grieve, I never pine,
For wealth I don't possess.
A happy home, a loving wife.
Of worldly goods a store,
Contended with my lot in life,
A king can be no more.-Chorus,

And one thing too I hold it good,
Wherever I may be,
To do to others as I would
That they should do to me.
This world would ne'er be dark and drear.
If each would try the plan
Ofgiving when they had to spare,
To help their fellow-man.-Chorus.
