When life seems too befuddlin'
Take time to do some spuddlin'
Go splashin' while it's puddlin'
Go barefoot in the rain.

When things are poor to middlin'
And both your thumbs are twiddlin'
Stand on your head while fiddlin'
For smi-l-in' out loud!!

When all about are snigglin'
Get all your toes a'wigglin'
Then soon you will be gigglin'
Your doldrum's sure to wane.

When things get willy-nilly
Do something brash and silly
Eat ice-cream with your chili
For smi-l-in' out loud!

When day's are feelin' maudlin
Watch baby ducklings waddlin'
There's always one that's dawdlin'
That's no time for disdain

When life is too befuddlin'
Make time to go out spuddlin'
That's splashin' while it's puddlin'
For smi-l-in' out loud!!!

I have a smile, from ear to ear  
you have my vote Nan  

Yes, I am here, but I am dead, not alive,
my body goes on, my spirit has died
and I though alive, feel dead inside.

You sure make it difficult to keep up the persona of a dark, brooding poet.  Damn feet are tapping and my face is in this really wierd configuration... kinda like this:
