      Ab           F7         Bb7            Eb7
Instead of feelin' bad, be glad you've got somewhere to go
Instead of feelin' sad, be happy you're not all alone
Instead of feelin' low, get high on everything that you love
Instead of wastin' time, feel good 'bout what you're dreamin' of.
      C7                       F            
Instead of tryin' to win something you never understood
Just play the game you know, eventually you'll love her good
      Bb7                      Eb7
It's silly to pretend that you have something you don't own
      Bb7                    Walk up
Just let her be your woman and you'll be her man:

Instead of feelin' broke, buck up and get yourself in the black
Instead of losin' hope, touch up the things that feel out of whack
Instead of bein' old, be young because you know you are
Instead of feelin' cold, let sunshine into your heart.

Instead of acting crazy chasin' things that make you mad
Keep your heart ahead, it'll lead you back to what you have
With every step you're closer to the place you need to be
It's up to you to let her love you sweetly:

Instead of feelin' bad be glad you've got someone to love
Instead of feelin' sad, be happy there's a god above
Instead of feelin' low, remember you're never on your own
Instead of feelin sad, be happy that she's there at home

       Bb7       Eb7         Ab
She's waitin' for you by the phone
       Bb7       Eb7         Ab
So be glad that she is all your own
