Positive Pad

Positive Pad

I’m sitting on a positive pad

Don’t want to dwell on things that are sad

I’m keepin’ my sight on things high

‘Cause how can I leap up if I don’t even try?

I’m sitting on a positive pad

You can be, too: just smile and be glad!

Chorus

‘Cause it’s a beautiful day

So what if the sky is gray!

I’m leaping along

With this cheery, little song:

La, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la!

La, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la!

I’m sitting on a positive pad

Don’t want to dwell on things that are bad

I won’t let the mud keep me down

‘Cause how can I leap up if I’m stuck in the ground?

I’m sitting on a positive pad

Don’t want to let the bugs make me mad

“Wham!” It’s gone now. Did you hear it go “Crunch”?

So now the pesky fly is now a treat for lunch!
