Thank you Allen C for posting Pack Up Your Sorrows to my request.This is not the tune I'm looking for,but it certainly has some touching word and I will copy and add to my collection.The song I'm looking for was written before 1930 and these are the only words that I remember.Thanks again Allen Louie Roy

"Save Your Sorrows for Tomorrow" was recorded by Tiny Tim on his album Live! At The Royal Albert Hall.

... by Frankie Laine, on the 6-CD boxed set I Believe

... and by Glen Gray & His Casa Loma Orchestra, on Live From The Meadowbrook Ballroom.

That's all the info I was able to find on the Internet.

"Save Your Sorrow For Tomorrow" w. B. G. De Sylva

Wondering if that is what you're looking for. It was written in 1925. Music was by Al Sherman.

I have listened to several sound samples. This seems to be the complete chorus. There is also a verse that I haven't found on any recordings.

Save your sorrow for tomorrow. Smile a while today.
Work is play for anyone that hums.
Smile today. Tomorrow never comes.
If you cheer up, skies will clear up. Clouds will pass away.
Save your sorrow for tomorrow. Smile a while today.

I think the opening verse and chorus are pretty close to what DeSylva & Sherman wrote in 1925, but the rest (I think) was added specifically for Giselle MacKenzie around 1960, and is full of topical references. I don't know who wrote them.


SAVE YOUR SORROW (FOR TOMORROW)
As sung by Gisele MacKenzie on "In Person at the Empire Room" (1960)

VERSE: People often say worry doesn't pay.
Never put off anything you can do today.
Wise as that may be, I must disagree,
For when you have tears to shed, take a tip from me:

CHORUS: Save your sorrow for tomorrow; smile awhile today.
Work is play to anyone that hums.
Live for today; tomorrow never comes.
If you cheer up, skies will clear up; clouds will pass away.
So save your sorrow for tomorrow; smile awhile today.

(SPOKEN: Don't go 'way; second chorus:)

Just tell yourself things couldn't be sweeter.
Tell yourself that there's no Nikita.
Suppose the world should come to an end.
Think of all the fun you've had, my friend.
You hear a siren and your nerves start squirmin'.
That ain't an air raid; it's just Ethel Merman.
The point is, if you worry, my advice is:
You're only startin'; think of the Waldorf prices.
Then think of all the countless hankies
Soaked with tears for the New York Yankees.
The drinkin' chums they threw out of doors
The day they started wreckin' good ol' Toots Shor's,
Instead of taxes easin', they'll get tighter.
Hope that made your night a little bit brighter.
But you will admit that I have tried, Clyde.
Anyone care to join me in a gang suicide?
Come on, let's cheer up.
Skies won't clear up.
They'll turn a lovely gray.
I feel gloomy,
And Dinah Shore can sue me.
So can Chevrolet.
Now, when gloom is king, that's the time to sing.
A thousand years from now it won't mean a darn thing,
So smile a great big smile today.
Have a ball; hooray!
Think of all you'll pay.
Smile your teeth away.
I feel I'm turnin' blue.
