Some Of These Days

Representative Text

1 Some of these days all the skies will be brighter--
Some of these days all the burdens be lighter;
Hearts will be happier, souls will be whiter--
Some of these days, some of these days!

Chorus:
Some of these days, some of these days,
Skies will be brighter some of these days,;
Some of these days all the burdens be lighter,
Some of these days, some of these days!

2 Some of these days, in the deserts up springing,
Fountains shall flash, while the joy bells are ringing,
And all the world, with the birds, shall go singing,
Some of these days, some of these days. [Chorus]

3 Some of these days! Let us bear with our sorrow;
Faith in the future--its light we may borrow;
There will be joy in the golden tomorrow,
Some of these days, some of these days! [Chorus]
