Jly friends, when its raining, Cut cut the complaining; We've been up against the same thing before. Cheer: up and remember, Betwixt now and December There'll be warm weather and sun shine galore. Be blithesome and breezy And don't feel uneasy In the mouth when it rains; A just compensation Brings equalization; And losses are squared by the .gains.
