Verse:
I've said good - bye to "Mis - ter Sor - row,"
How do you do "Mis - ter Joy,"
No need to wor - ry 'bout to - mor - row,
Look at me,  And you'll see,
A soul as hap - py as can be;  Be - cause I'm:
 
Chorus:
Look - ing at the world thru rose col - ored glass - es,
Ev - 'ry thing is ros - y now,
Look - ing at the world and ev - 'ry thing that pass - es,
Seems of ros - y hue some how,
Why do I, feel so spry,  Don't wink your eye,
Need - n't guess,  I'll con - fess,  Cer - tain some - one just said yes,
In a bung - a - low all cov - ered with ros - es,
I will set - tle down I vow.
That's why I'm look - ing at the world thru rose col - ored glass - es
And ev - 'ry -thing is ros - y now.
