A Cockeyed Optimist Lyrics
Song: A Cockeyed Optimist
When the skies are brighter canary yellow
I forget ev'ry cloud I've ever seen,
So they called me a cockeyed optimist
Immature and incurably green.
I have heard people rant and rave and bellow
That we're done and we might as well be dead,
But I'm only a cockeyed optimist
And I can't get it into my head.
I hear the human race
Is fallin' on its face
And hasn't very far to go,
But ev'ry whippoorwill
Is sellin' me a bill,
And tellin' me it just ain't so.
I could say life is just a bowl of Jello
And appear more intelligent and smart,
But I'm stuck like a dope
With a thing called hope,
And I can't get it out of my heart!
Not this heart...

A Cockeyed Optimist
Some Enchanted Evening
There Is Nothin' like A Dame
I'm Gonna Wash that Man right outa My Hair
A Wonderful Guy
Younger than Springtime
You've Got to be Carefully Taught
This Nearly Was Mine
Finale: Dites-moi (reprise)
Loneliness of Evening
My Girl Back Home
