Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty - How Lucky We Are Lyrics

(Song from Seussical the musical - How Lucky We Are Lyrics)

When the news is all bad,
When you're sour and blue,
When you start to get mad
You should do what I do-

Tell yourself
How lucky we are...

When your life's going wrong
When the fates are unkind
When you're limping along
And get kicked from behind
Tell yourself how lucky we are...

Why decry a cloudy sky
An empty purse
A crazy universe?
My philosophy is simply
Things could be worse!

So be happy you're here.
Think of life as a thrill
And if worse comes to worse
Thank your lucky star
You've gotten this far...

We're here in this beautiful theatre

And you're in the first row!
How lucky to be in the theatre!
More lucky than you know!
You could have the luck of our hero
Whose luck has been running low

How lucky we are!
How lucky, how lucky we are!
