“I was delighted to hear these lyrics. I never knew these until now. It is also fun to see the star of the show singing them. One version is on FB the other version I posted here. Take these to heart and enjoy them! May they put a smile on your lips and a song in your heart.
Recently, Dick Van Dyke celebrated his 90th birthday. On May 6, 2011 a gentleman named Evan Cutler asked Dick what the words were to the theme song of the Dick Van Dyke Show. Dick sang them on video. I don’t have a link to that but I did find Dick singing it as an ad for MeTV. (There are some other versions on youtube. Here is that link for your enjoyment:
I transcribed Dick singing the diddly. Here it is.
‘So you think that you’ve got trouble
well, troubles a bubble so tell ole mister trouble to get lost.
Why not hold your head up high and stop crying, start trying
and don’t forget to keep your fingers crossed.
When you find the joy of living is loving and giving
you’ll be there when the winning dice are tossed.
A smile is just a frown that is turned upside down
so smile and that frown will defrost.
And don’t forget to keep your fingers crossed.”
Lyrics by Morey Amsterdam
Enjoy your day, and if you find yourself humming the song, remember the words and take them to heart. Celebrate and smile!” Rex Sikes
Make the day marvelous!
