Don’t Worry, Be Happy

This song came on my media player – it used to make me smile but now it makes me frown – even feel a bit betrayed.

It is great advice and the song clips along at a good cadence – I have often played it when I was fretting over something pretty insignificant and it always made me feel better.  I would tell others this little phrase when they would tell me they were down or worried.

However, the singer who sang this song committed suicide – how can I take the advice of someone who tells me not to worry, be happy when he killed himself over his worries? Talk about the epitome of not taking your own advice.  It was quite a blow when I heard about his death from a coworker months ago.  I had to look it up because I couldn’t fathom how it could be true.  Now the song is a bitter reminder and I need to take it off my media player.  😦

Here is a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy……

Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
The land lord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy
Lood at me I am happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Here I give you my phone number
When you worry call me
I make you happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style
Ain’t got not girl to make you smile
But don’t worry be happy
Cause when you worry
Your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don’t worry, be happy (now)…..

There is this little song I wrote
I hope you learn it note for note
Like good little children
Don’t worry, be happy
Listen to what I say
In your life expect some trouble
But when you worry
You make it double
Don’t worry, be happy……
Don’t worry don’t do it, be happy
Put a smile on your face
Don’t bring everybody down like this
Don’t worry, it will soon past
Whatever it is
Don’t worry, be happy
