If I should suddenly start to sing
Or stand on my head or anything
Don`t think that I've lost my senses
It`s just that my happiness finally commences

The long long ages of dull despair
Are turning into thin air
And it seems that suddenly I've
Become the happiest girl alive

Things are looking up
I've been looking the landscape over
And it`s covered with four leaf clover
Oh things are looking up
Since love looked up at me

Bitter was my cup
But no more will I be the mourner
For I've certainly turned the corner
Oh things are looking up
Since love looked up at me

See the sunbeams
Every one beams
Just because of you
Love`s in session
And my depression
Is unmistakably through

Things are looking up
It`s a great little world we live in
Oh I`m happy as a pup
Since love looked up at me

See the sunbeams
Every one beams
Just because of you
Love`s in session
And my depression
Is unmistakably through

Things are looking up
It`s a great little world we live in
Oh I`m happy as a pup
Since love looked up at me
