I Whistle A Happy Tune

I Whistle A Happy Tune
music by Richard Rodgers (left)
lyric by Oscar Hammerstein II (right)

Whenever I feel afraid I hold my head erect and whistle a happy tune,
So no one will suspect I'm afraid.
While shivering in my shoes I strike a careless pose and whistle a happy tune,
And no one ever knows I'm afraid.

The result of this deception is very strange to tell,
For when I fool the people I fear I fool myself as well!

I whistle a happy tune, and every single time the happiness in the tune
Convinces me that I'm not afraid!

Make believe you're brave and the trick will take you far;
You may be as brave as you make believe you are.
