                 C5 
When the sky 
                                         Cm9add    B5+ 
Is a bright canary yellow                I forget 
                                          Bbm9 
Every cloud I've ever seen 
              Ab                           Gm 
So they call me a cockeyed         optimist 
Fm 
Immature and incurably green I have heard 
                 C5 
People rant  
                                                          Cm9add    B5+ 
And rave and bellow that we're done                 and we might 
                                              Bbm9  
As well be dead but I'm only  
              Ab                                      Gm 
A cockeyed optimist And I can't get     it into my head 
Fm 
I hear the human race is fallin' on it face 
                 C5 
And hasn't  
                                                          Cm9add    B5+ 
Very far to go but ev'ry whippoorwill                is sellin' me a bill 
                                              Bbm9  
And tellin' me it just ain't so 
              Ab                           Gm 
I could say life is just a bowl       of Jello 
Fm 
And appear more intelligent and smart 
                     C5 
But I'm stuck  
                                                          Cm9add    B5+ 
Like a dope with a thing called hope                 and I can't 
                                                     Bbm9  
No, I won't get it out of my heart 
Ab 
Not this heart
