The Everything-Is-Rosy Rag
(Words & Music by Keith Brown)

You got to rise and shine now, every morning,
Sing the Everything-Is-Rosy Rag,
I’m tired of all your bitchin’ and moanin’
Sayin’ life is such a drag,
Now there’s a world around you,
Every day begins anew,
So put the stops to feeling blue,
And seize the day, it’s up to you.

There’s always times you feel a little lazy,
Just a laid-back, no count fool,
And it isn’t hard to get a little crazy
With the weight you’ve got to pull,
Now it’s all crystal clear,
The things you did not understand
When you signed on to be a man,
So carry on the best you can.

CHORUS 1:

So kick up your boot straps, to yourself you must be true,
And do those things you know that only you can do,
Turn on your life light, come on back into the fold,
One thing you need, my friend, to come back in from the cold
Would be a little less bummin’, a little more hummin’
The Everything-Is-Rosy Rag,
I said a little less bummin’, and a little more hummin’
The Everything-Is-Rosy Rag.

(Instrumental Bridge)

CHORUS 2:

So turn on your love light, open up and you will see,
The world you knew when you were young and wild and free,
Just step on up, my friend, it’s time for your debut,
And all things ever need is the proper point of view.

You got to rise and shine now every morning,
Sing the Everything-Is-Rosy Rag,
I’m tired of all your bitchin’ and moanin’
Saying life is such a drag,
You need to find a way, my friend to improve upon your mood,
The time is now, it’s up to you, it’s time to change your attitude,

You need a little less bummin’ and a little more hummin’
The Everything-Is-Rosy Rag
I said a little less bummin’ and a little more hummin’
The Everything-Is-Rosy Rag,

You need a little less bummin’ and a little more hummin’,
I said a little less bummin’ and a little more hummin’
The Everything-Is-Rosy Rag.
