Pretend Nat ‘King’ Cole (#2 in 1953)

 Pretend you're happy when you're blue,
It isn't very hard to do.
And you'll find happiness without an end
Whenever you pretend.
Remember, anyone can dream,
And nothing's bad as it may seem.
The little things you haven't got
Could be a lot if you pretend.
You'll find a love you can share,
One you can call all your own.
Just close your eyes, she'll be there,
You'll never be alone.
And if you sing this melody,
You'll be pretending just like me.
The world is mine, it can be yours, my friend,
So why don't you pretend?
