“I Whistle a Happy Tune”

Transcript

Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect And whistle a happy tune so no one will suspect I'm afraid While shivering in my shoes, I strike a careless pose And whistle a happy tune and no one ever knows I'm afraid The result of this deception is very strange to tell, For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well I whistle a happy tune, and every single time, The happiness in the tune convinces me that I'm not afraid Make believe you're brave, and the trick will take you far, You may be as brave as you make believe you are [whistling] You may be as brave as you make believe you are
