The Lyrics

When you’re unlucky and feel down in the dumps
Just keep on trucking like you’re Donald J. Trump
KEEP LOOKING UP!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
(A New You)
Don’t try to renege when you have got to think BIG!
KEEP LOOKING UP!


You wanna sleep in on your mommy’s couch
Your butt is draggin’ but the tiger’s crouched
KEEP LOOKING UP!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
(A New You)
Don’t live like a pig - you got to get your own digs
KEEP LOOKING UP!


Keep Looking Up, spruce
Keep Looking Up, spruce
Keep Looking Up, spruce
KEEP LOOKING UP!


What happened to the kid who dreamed so grand?
Who had paper routes and lemonade stands
KEEP LOOKING UP!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
(A New You)
Now don’t be so sour when you don’t feel so empowered
KEEP LOOKING UP!



You maybe feeling like a lazy oaf
But you feed ten birds with a single loaf
KEEP LOOKING UP!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
(A New You)
Don’t feel like a bum just go pick up the crumbs
KEEP LOOKING UP!




Keep Looking Up, spruce
Keep Looking Up, spruce
Keep Looking Up, spruce
KEEP LOOKING UP!



You may feel left out - like you warm the bench
On the next play you’re gonna storm the trench
KEEP LOOKING UP!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
(A New You)
If I was your coach I’d take a different approach
KEEP LOOKING UP!


It’s fourth and down and your just inches away
Will you be punting or try and run a play?
KEEP LOOKING UP!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
(A New You)
I tell you what sport, you need man up and score!
KEEP LOOKING UP!


KEEP LOOKING UP!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
(A New You)
I tell you what sport, you need man up and score!
KEEP LOOKING UP!

Nice. I liked how you even came up with subs for the "ooh"s and "oo-woo-oo"s.

Good one, nice and inspirational. Keep looking up Bruce, I mean Lionel! 5's

:-) As a way of keeping looking up, can I suggest "Keep Going Down" as an alternative parody idea for this OS? (amazingly enough, it doesn't seem to have been done yet)
