Song lyrics
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...
(Whistle)

Always look on the light side
of life...
(Whistle)

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...
(Whistle)

Come on.

Always look on the right side
of life...
(Whistle)

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...
(Whistle)

a-Just before you draw your terminal breath...
(Whistle)

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 its all a show, keep 'em laughin as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

And...
Always look on the bright side
of life...
(Whistle)

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.

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
(I mean) of life...

what have you got to lose?
You know, you come from nothing
- you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost?

Always (Nothing.) look on the right side of life...

Nothing will come from nothing ya know what they say?
Cheer up ya old bugga c'mon give us a grin!
There ya go, see!

Always look on the right side of life...
(Cheer up ya old bugga c'mon give us a grin! At same time)

There ya go, see!

darby omalley I think you will find it is actualy from the life of brian if you type look on the bright side of life into youtube it shows a video from life of brian the part where they are on the crucifixes, plus the meaning of life and life of brian are about two different subjects, why would the meaning of life about sex have a song about death? seriously if you look it up it shows a clip from life of brian and I'm religious and I like this song even the video and yes I have seen the movie and I think it's very funny

No way, there'll never be a song, which is better than this! You know why? Coz it's not just a song, it can change everything in your life.. We see our lives as the worst ever sometimes and that's not what we're supposed to do... The meaning of life is: Whatever happens always look on the bright side of it.. It can cheer u up every moment and remember: The ones who win in life, are the ones who can see the bright side of it

I love this song!! It was actually played at my Aunt's funeral, I know it sounds a little, erm, well, w/e, but she went kind of nuts in the last few weeks of her life because of a disease she had, and she still remembered monty python quotes. She sung the whole Knights of Camelot song on her death bed. So this really suited her. Whenever I watch "Life of Brian" it just makes me want to sing along!

I have no idea why I haven't posted in this discussion, cos in my opinion this is just the bestestest song ever.

It's a nice, funny happy song. I looooooove it. It's got awesome lyrics, the melody is just amazing, it just makes you whistle whether you want to or not, whether you can or not. It's just Monty Python

And oh, it's from an awesome movie, so what more can you ask for eh?
