A giggle a day helps to keep the doctor away,
That's my armchair philosophy for you today.

Never mind the apple, although that won't hurt you either,
But in this frantic, stressful world we need to make our life easier.

We work our fingers to the bone; we forever watch the clock,
We've got bills to pay, cars to fix and pantries we must stock.

There's never enough time to do all we have on our lists,
We never have enough cash, it keeps slipping through our fists.

But if we take it all in stride and accept life for what it is,
We can handle all the stress and happily take care of biz.

Let's just take a step back and throw the angst away,
And remember that a giggle a day helps keep the doctor away.
