Sempre olhe o lado bom da vida

Dez entre dez blogueiros enrolados com seus afazeres pessoais, profissionais e derivados, ocupam espaço com letras de músicas. Hoje é um desses dias – e felizmente a semana está quase no fim. A canção que você vai ver a seguir encerra um dos melhores filmes que já tive a oportunidade de assistir.

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life, do filme “A Vida de Brian”, é um tremendo deboche em relação a situação desconfortável do personagem central. Abandonado e prestes a ser crucificado, Brian e outros hereges ainda vêem motivos para se alegrar. A letra e música é do Eric Idle – o Pyton que, anos depois, virou assistente da vilã megera do primeiro Gasparzinho. Siga a bolinha branca e cante – sem esquecer de assobiar no refrão!

(Cheer up, Brian! You know what they say!)
Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.

When you’re chewing on life’s grissle,
Don’t grumble, give a whistle.
And this’ll help things turn out for the best,

And…
Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life

If life seems jolly rotten,
There’s something you’ve forgotten,
And that’s to laugh, and smile, and dance, and sing.

When you’re feeling in the dumps,
Don’t be silly chumps,
Just purse your lips and whistle, that’s the thing.

And…
Always look on the bright side of life
(Come on!)
Always look on the bright side of life

For life is quite absurd,
And death’s the final word.
You must always face the curtain wih a bow.

Forget about your sin,
Give the audience a grin.
Enjoy it, it’s your last chance anyhow,

So…
Always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your termnal breath.

Life’s a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life’s a laugh, and death’s a joke, it’s true.

You’ll see it’s all a show,
Keep ‘em laughing as you go,
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And…
Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the right side of life
(Come on, Brian… cheer up.)

Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)

Always look on the bright side of life
(I mean, what have you got to lose?
You know. You come from nothing,
you’re going back to nothing,
what have you lost?
Nothing!)

Always look on the bright side of life
(Nothing will come from nothing,
you know what they say.
Cheer up, you old bugger.
Come on, give us a grin.)

Always look on the bright side of life
(There you are. See? It’s the end of the film.
Incidently this record’s available in the foyer.)

Always look on the bright side of life
(Some of us have got to live as well you know.
Who do you think pays for all this rubbish?)

Always look on the bright side of life
(They’ll never make their money back, you know.
I told him, I said to him, Bernie,
I said, they’ll never make their money back.)

Always look on the bright side of life!
