Birds in Music: The Bluebird of Happiness

The beggar man and the mighty king
Are only different in name
For they are treated just the same by Fate.
Today a smile and tomorrow a tear
We’re never sure what’s in store
So learn your lesson before it is too late.
The poet with his pen
The peasant with his plow
It makes no difference who you are
It’s all the same somehow.
The king upon his throne
The jester at his feet
The artist, the actress
The man on the street.
It’s a life of smiles
And a life of tears
It’s a life of hope
And a life of fears.
A blinding torrent of rain
And a brilliant burst of sun,
A biting, tearing pain
And bubbling, sparkling fun.
And no matter what you have
Don’t envy those you meet,
It’s all the same, it’s in the game
The bitter and the sweet.
And if things don’t look so cheerful
Just show a little fight,
For every bit of darkness
There’s a little bit of light.
For every bit of hatred
There’s a little bit of love.
For every cloudy morning
There’s a midnight moon above.
So don’t you forget
You must search
Till you find the bluebird.
You will find peace
And contentment forever
