I heard this on an "oldies" show on our local community radio show, today, just as I was driving along and it struck as a great song with which to start my day. So, while it might not sound like folk, I think it could be "folked up" and it's a fun song to share. Hope you enjoy it, too!

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS AND SMILE
From the film "Let George Do It" (1940)
(George Formby / Harry Gifford / Fred E. Cliffe)

George Formby - 1940 (Watch him sing it on youtube)



Though plans may often go wrong, let `em hear your voice
You'll find that rhythm and song make the world rejoice
Make life go with a swing, laugh at trouble and sing
Tra-la-la-la, la-la, la-la, count your blessings and smile

While you're playing your part, keep a song in your heart
Tra-la-la-la, la-la, la-la, count your blessings and smile

Sing low, sing high, isn't it grand, beating the band
Who wants to die, oh what a happy land, hi!
Show them what you can do, make a hullabaloo
Tra-la-la-la, la-la, la-la, count your blessings and smile

You got to get together, swing it around
Now get together, swing it around
Make life go with a swing and a smile
Laugh at trouble and sing all the while
Now count your blessings and smile

While you're playing your own little part
You've gotta keep a song in your heart
Black puddings and tripe and trotters
Count your blessings and smile

Sing low, sing high, isn't it grand, beating the band
Who-who-who who wants to die, oh what a happy, happy land
Show them what you can do, make a hullabaloo
Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo, ha-ha–ha–ha
Count your blessings, one–two–three
Count your blessings, four–five–six
Count your blessings and smile

(Ukelele Solo)

Show then what you can do, make a hullabaloo
Haw-haw-haw-haw, ha-ha-ha-ha
Count your blessings and smile

Oh what fun! Check out this video, using that song, with the Seven Gods of Happiness: In a world where it seems many things are wrong, there are still many things that are good. Join the Seven Happy Gods, the marching ASA Bands of Okinawa , Japanese Tradition drummers and the Walking Treeman as they make Okinawa`s declaration to peace to the world.
