D Gm
Bloody hell bloody hell the world is awful

Everything everything is looking dreary

There’s too many puddles on the ground and far too much pollution in the air.

Everything I used to love has turned to shit

All the world’s gone bankrupt now and it

Doesn’t look like things will soon improve

I’m noticably older than I was

What do you do when you’ve lost the motivation to get dressed?

Pretend that you are happy

D
And smile when you’re feeling blue

Am7 D
If you pretend you’re happy

G
You’ll start to believe it’s true

Than fill the world with woe

So just pretend you’re happy

G
And nobody will know.

[Verse]
D Gm
Bloody hell bloody hell the world is scary

D Gm
Cos there’s nothing but corruption and destruction and reality TV

Cm Gm
One at a time I’m losing touch with my

Former friends and lately it seems I

Never ring the contacts in my phone

For which I will probably be alone

Well what do you do when you’ve lost all the ambitions you once had

What do you do when the slightest inconvenience makes you sad?

Pretend that you are happy

If your friends think you’re happy

They’ll still want you around.

You’ll realise it’s important

To be glad with what you’ve got

So just pretend you’re happy

G
And keep quiet if you’re not!

Pretend that you are happy

D
And smile when you’re feeling blue

Am7 D
If you pretend you’re happy

G
You’ll start to believe it’s true

It’s better to fake a smile

Than fill the world with woe…

So just pretend you’re happy

G
And nobody will know.
