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 gristle
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 right side of life

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with 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
A-just before you draw your terminal 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

C'mon 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 right side of life....

Nothing will come from nothing, you know what they say?
Cheer up you old bugger, c'mon give us a grin!
There you are, see, it's the end of the film
Incidentally, this record is available in the foyer
Some of us have to got live as well, you know
Who do you think pays for all this rubbish
They're not gonna make their money back, you know
I told them, I said to them, Bernie, I said they'll never make their money back

Ha.  I just came across this on PSD and remembered when I heard this last.  It was played at my close friend's funeral a few years back.  Shane always had a dodgy sense of humour but he would have been sideways if he'd seen the look on the Vicar's face when the old boy realised that the lyrics blaring out on the Church PA were a little irreverent to say the least.  Perhaps he should have checked it out before allowing it in the service.  Never mind.

 
Priceless! Absolutely priceless! If we could all leave the earth is such irreverent style. {#Notworthy}

Assuming that Cheney and alumni like Ashcroft and Rumsfeld are in the dock as well, why not "Send In The Clowns" instead?

 
Love this Tune!   
CHENEY!!!  oh those were the days, that sick old fuck creating money-robbing xenophobic battles while the US economy was a horror show and his "Boss" was dopey Bush, oh my yes those were the days, if I ever have Dick's name come to mind it's wondering if the dirty rat is dead yet... now instead of Monty Python for laughs its Colbert and the actual quotes of tRump each day, yuck
Totally needed this today. 
PSD button - THANK YOU!  Been ages since I heard this.  Brought a smile to my face.
I recently saw "Spamalot" in Las Vegas. Great show! I happened to be sitting in the secret seat in the theater and was called up on stage at the finale. I got to sing this song with the cast!!! My 15 minutes of fame! By the way, if you're planning to see this show in Vegas ask for seat D101 when reserving.
Brings a smile to my face!
Great song.

Read this account of how a couple of Britons kidnapped in South America used this song during the captivity. (click here)
That has to be one of the weirdest things I've ever read. I really admire them for even thinking of yelling "Hello, Columbia!". Now, that's style.

That is so utterly appropriate for Monty Python... it's as if they wrote it!
Silly, goofy and absolutely brilliant!

This tune needs to be viewed in the context from the scene in The Life of Brian. Bloody brilliant.
Needs to be followed up with "Brave Sir Robin" from Spamalot! Brilliant! :good-vibes:
What have you lost? Nothing!

Always brings a grin...

Bill, You should include Eric Idle's new song, "Phuck the FCC" as well. That one is even funnier.
I'd love to hear that. I'll look for it.

Wonderful! Now, please make RP even more spectacular than it already is and play some Spinal Tap (and enable 11 as a rating option).
You only get one 11 rating. After that, the amps explode.

"Life of Brian" was re-released at my theatre last month . Fantastic stuff and this song stuck with me, I was even bobbing my head along. :roflol:

This is eric idle singing at the end of "Life of Brian" to cheer up Graham Chapman, as Brian, after he had been crucified.
Prine - Sinatra - Python We're not in Kansas anymore.

Should be Eric Idle, right? By the way, this is a very nice for dancing a Slow Foxtrot.

PERFECTOMUNDO .... That's EXACTLY what I needed this morning .... oh thank you Bill Now you should follow this by some Megadeath ... :D (kidding)
I actually went to an IRON MAIDEN concert in the 80's where they played this song over the speakers after the final encore and the lights turned on.... I always think of that...
"you come from nuffin, you leave wif nuffin, wot you lose? Nuffin!"
From the sublime (Frank Sinatra - That's Life) to the ridiculous - this. Both fantastic. Great segue.
HOOOORAAAY! Man, I needed this today. Perfecto.

WMMR radio in Philadelphia used to play this every Friday at the end of John deBella's morning show...with the word "shit" very artfully chopped out. It seemed like the official beginning of the weekened.
He's back on classic rock station 102.9 WMGK and playing it again. Imagine that.
The best song.....ever.....

It\'s amazing ... this song always pops up just when I need it. KPIG, German radio, RP, you name it -- they\'re there. It\'s like they knew!
Whee! :bounce:

this is one of those songs where the visuals really help. guys singing this song while being crucified is just so wrong its hilarious.
And Bill, perhaps you'll reconsider my Rutles uploads?

:clap: Thank you ! My co-worker is wondering why I just suddenly burst out laughing. I never expected to hear the Pythons on RP. :notworthy:

A definte CLASSIC :bounce: Even for us french folks in Québec. Thank you RP
Just what I needed! Excuse me while I whistle along....
