8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I've said goodbye to "Mister Sorrow,"
How do you do "Mister Joy,"
No need to worry 'bout tomorrow,
Look at me,  And you'll see,
A soul as happy as can be;  Because I'm:
Looking at the world thru rose colored glasses,
Ev'ry thing is rosy now,
Looking at the world and ev'ry thing that passes,
Seems of rosy hue some how,
Why do I, feel so spry,  Don't wink your eye,
Needn't guess,  I'll confess,  Certain someone just said yes,
In a bungalow all covered with roses,
I will settle down I vow.
That's why I'm looking at the world thru rose colored glasses
And ev'rything is rosy now.
Listen to Nick Lucas perform "Rose Colored Glasses" (mp3)
