A lot of you may remember the old Dick Van Dyke show on CBS. Those who watched it, loved it. It was one of the greats. You can still view entire episodes on YouTube and other places on the internet.
I found the lyrics, the other day, written by the comic genius, Morey Amsterdam. It struck me as I read them that many churches today could use these words as their theme. I can just see Joel Osteen or Ed Young Jr. walking out on stage and tripping. What a laugh that would bring to their congregations.
What do you think?
THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW THEME SONG
(Music by Earle Hagen / Lyrics by Morey Amsterdam)
So you think that you've got troubles?
Well, trouble's a bubble,
So tell old Mr. Trouble to "Get lost!"
Why not hold your head up high and,
Stop cryin', start tryin',
And don't forget to keep your fingers crossed.
When you find the joy of livin'
Is lovin' and givin'
You'll be there when the winning dice are tossed.
A smile is just a frown that's turned upside down,
So smile, and that frown will defrost.
And don't forget to keep your fingers crossed!
