Lyrics to The Dick Van Dyke Show theme song

Had the pleasure today of hearing DVD sing the theme song to his eponymous 1960s TV show, this during his appearance on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me," the NPR quiz show. Delightful!

So you think that you’ve got trouble, well, trouble’s a bubble,
So tell ol’ Mr. Trouble to get lost.
Why not hold your head up high and stop cryin’, start tryin’
And don’t forget to keep your fingers crossed.

When you find the joy of livin’ is lovin’ and givin’
You’ll be there when the winning dice are tossed.
A smile is just a frown that’s turned upside down
So smile and that frown’ll defrost.
And don’t forget to keep your fingers crossed.
