Don't hurry through life with a frown on your face,
And never a moment to spare,
For your smile is always worth while
In this world full of trouble and dispair.
Don't feel that misfortune has singled you out
And made you her special prey.
For you may be sure there's no home so secure
That trouble won't enter some way.
Yet if you have sunshine and love in your home,
If pleasure and plenty abound
Don't hoard up your store, as you'll enjoy that much more
If you scatter if freely around
