Jack Hylton, bandleader and crooner Pat O'Malley in a depression-busting 1931 arrangement of the jolly Henderson-DeSylva-Brown tune:
LIFE IS JUST A BOWL OF CHERRIES
Life is just a bowl of cherries.
Don't be so serious; life's too mysterious.
You work, you save, you worry so,
But you can't take your dough when you go, go, go.
So keep repeating it's the berries,
The strongest oak must fall,
The sweet things in life, to you were just loaned
So how can you lose what you've never owned?
Life is just a bowl of cherries,
So live and laugh at it all.
