BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS (Words by Edward Heyman and Harry Parr Davies / Music by Sandor Harmati) Art Mooney & His Orchestra – 1948
(verse) The beggar man and his mighty king are only diff’rent in name, For they are treated just the same by fate. Today a smile and tomorrow tears, We’re never sure what’s in store, So learn your lesson before too late, so
(refrain) Be like I, hold your head up high, Till you find a bluebird of happiness. You will find greater peace of mind Knowing there’s a bluebird of happiness. And when he sings to you, Though you’re deep in blue, You will see a ray of light creep through, And so remember this, life is no abyss, Somewhere there’s a bluebird of happiness.
Life is sweet, tender and complete When you find the bluebird of happiness. You will find perfect peace of mind When you find the bluebird of happiness. Two hearts that beat as one, ‘Neath a new found sun, We are in a world that’s just begun, And you must sing his song, as you go along, When you find the bluebird of happiness.
