A Cockeyed Optimist

4 -4 5 5 5 5 -4 4 -3 3 3
When the sky is a bright ca-nar-y yel-low

-3 4 -4 -4 -4 -4 4 -3 3 -2
I for-get ev-‘ry cloud I’ve ev-er seen,

2 -2 3 -3 4 -3 -3 5 -2 -2
So they call me a cock-eyed op-ti-mist

-2 -2 3 -5 -5 -5 5 -4 -2
Im-ma-ture and in-cur-a-bly green.

4 -4 5 5 5 5 -4 4 -3 3 3
I have heard peo-ple rant and rave and bel-low.

-3 4 -4 -4 -4 -4 4 -3 3 -2
That we’re done and we might as well be dead,

2 -2 3 -3 4 -3 -3 5 -2 -2
But I’m on-ly a cock-eyed op-ti-mist

-2 -2 3 -5 -5 -5 5 -4 4
And I can’t get it in-to my head.

5 5 -3 -3 -3 -3 -3 -3 2 2 2 2
I hear the hu-man race is fall-ing on it’s face

-3 -3 -3 -3 -3 -4 5 -3
And has-n’t ver-y far to go,

-3 5 -3 -3 -3 -3
But ev-‘ry whip-poor-will

-3 -3 4 4 4 4
Is sell-ing me a bill,

2 -2 -2 -2 -2 -3 -3 -4
And tell-ing me it just ain’t so.

4 -4 5 5 5 5 -4 4 -3 3 3
I would say life is just a bowl of jel-lo

-3 4 -4 -4 -4 -4 4 -3 3 -2
And ap-pear more in-tel-li-gent and smart,

2 -2 3 -3 4 -3
But I’m stuck like a dope,

4 -4 5 5 -5
With a thing called hope,

5 -5 6 -5 6 6 -5 6 6
And I can’t get it out of my heart!

4 -4 4 -3 4
Not this heart!


A Cockeyed Optimist Lyrics


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…
