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 4 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
