It's Fine Today

default By more Douglas Malloch

Sure, this world is full of trouble
     I ain't said it ain't.
Lord, I've had enough and double
     Reason for complaint;
Rain and storm have come to fret me,
     Skies are often gray;
Thorns and brambles have beset me
     On the road — but say,
     Ain't it fine today?

What's the use of always weepin',
     Making trouble last?
What's the use of always keepin'
     Thinkin' of the past?
Each must have his tribulation —
     Water with his wine;
Life, it ain't no celebration,
     Trouble? — I've had mine —
     But today is fine!

It's today that I am livin',
     Not a month ago.
Havin'; losin'; takin'; givin';
     As time wills it so.
Yesterday a cloud of sorrow
     Fell across the way,
It may rain again tomorrow,
     It may rain — but say,
     Ain't it fine today?
