Look for the Silver Lining (from Sally, 1920)

Vocal Range



Please don’t be offended if I preach to you a while,
Tears are out of place in eyes that were meant to smile.
There’s a way to make your very biggest troubles small,
Here’s the happy secret of it all:

Look for the silver lining
Whene’er a cloud appears in the blue.
Remember somewhere the sun is shining,
And so the right thing to do is make it shine for you.
A heart full of joy and gladness
Will always banish sadness and strife.
So always look for the silver lining
And try to find the sunny side of life.

As I wash my dishes, I’ll be following your plan,
Till I see the brightness in every pot and pan.
I am sure your point of view will ease the daily grind,
So I’ll keep repeating in my mind:

Look for the silver lining...
