Lyrics

Walk about with your mother. Walk about with your father. Walk about with your lover. Put on your bravest face.
Walk about with your sister. Walk about with your brother. Walk about with another. Wearing your bravest face.
And you’ll be on your way. And you pretend to feel okay.
Move and stray from complications, showing all your sorrows. (If your life is a muddle…)
Move to stay in warm vacation, dreams of nice tomorrows. (Put away all your troubles.)
Move away from those who say, your brave face look is hollow. (You’ll be safe in your bubble.)
Step around, charm and confound, and keep your truth from everyone.
Sing aloud with your mother. Sing aloud with your father. Sing aloud with your lover. Keep on your bravest face.
Sing aloud with your sister. Sing aloud with your brother. Sing aloud with another. Wearing your bravest face.
And you’ll be on your way. And you intend to feel okay.
Harmony is all you’ll need, with dear and fav’rite fun songs. (If your life is a struggle…)
Syncopation with relations, smoothing any great wrongs… (Put away all your troubles.)
Move away from those who say, your brave face song is hollow. (Move your ass on the double!)
Dodge and weave with grace and speed, and keep the party going strong!
Dance around with your mother. (Dance with your ma.) Dance around with your father. (Dance with your pa.)
Dance around with your lover. Put on your bravest smile. (La la la la…)
Dance around like it’s sunny. (Dance in the sun.) Roll around with your honey. (Roll with your hun.)
Laugh aloud (Ha!) with your buddies. Sharing your bravest smile.
And folks will feel your style. And then your life may feel worthwhile.
