lyrics

I wasn’t on the Titanic
I wasn’t there for World War II
They say the world is in a panic
And that’s what I’m supposed to do

So maybe I’ll start baking
And maybe I’ll stop sinning
Maybe I’m not supposed to be happy now
But I’m secretly grinning

Call me Pollyanna
I’ll turn your flour into manna
Gary, Indiana
I’ll take you to the Copacabana

I didn’t see the Chicago Fires
I only just learned about the Spanish Flu
There are some things tragedy requires
But hopelessness is one I just won’t do

So maybe I’ll start baking
And maybe I’ll stop sinning
Maybe I’m not supposed to be happy now
But I’m secretly grinning

Call me Pollyanna
I’ll turn your flour into manna
Gary, Indiana
I’ll take you to the Copacabana

My neighbors never say hello
Or maybe I don’t, I don’t know
You won’t hear us singing out our windows, no

But call me Pollyanna
I’ll turn your flour into manna
Sweet Home Alabama
I’ll turn into the Star Spangled Banner
Call me Pollyanna
I’ll turn your flour into manna
Gary, Indiana
I’ll take you to the Copacabana
