Calm down and have some lemonade! Basically.

lyrics

If you dwell on winter's gloom Am C D Am
Agony, woe and parking tickets Am - E -
You will miss the sweet perfume Am C D Am
That attends October's thickets Am - E -

Give me no dark disclaimer! E - Am -

Many a foolish road begins in sorrow, ends in sorrow Am D Am - - - E -
Yet passes a landscape painted in joy Am D Am D
Think on this and do not borrow Am - E -
Trouble against tomorrow E - Am -

If this is bound to end in tears
If no good thing can follow from it
But is the only path to you
I would still embark upon it

Gladly I'll sign that waiver!

Many a foolish road begins in sorrow, ends in sorrow
Yet passes a landscape painted in joy
Think on this and do not borrow
Trouble against tomorrow

What benefit may be derived
Fatalistically feeling wary?
If one more day you have survived
Take my hand and let's be merry!

A grasshopper needs a fiddle!

Many a foolish road begins in sorrow, ends in sorrow
Yet passes a landscape painted in joy
Think on this and do not borrow
Trouble against tomorrow
Trouble against tomorrow
