If your luck is out of whack,

Novor turn a coward back,
Keop on hoping.
Though tho world bo dark today,
Though your skies bo damp and gray,
And you loso in every play,
Keep on hoping.
If your wlfo is glum and cross,
Keep i'U hoping,
If sho trios to bo tho boss,
Koop on hoping
In tho coming by and by,
A nice gown may catch hor oyo,
And sho'll bo as nice as pio,
Keop on hoping.
If your sweetheart is unkind,
Keep on hoping.
If she can't mako up her mind,
Keep on hoping.
Praise some other maiden's charms,
Fill hor breast with lovo's alarms,
And sho'll flop into your arms
Keep on hoping
If your wifey's mother comes,
Keep on hoping,
Though your ears have aching drum.,
Keep on hoping.
There will come a joyous day
When she'll take herself away
Maybe up to heaven to stay
Keep ou hoping.
At your troubles never shy,
Keep on hoping;
You'll be a winner by and by,
Keep on hoping,
For the darkest hour, thy say
Is before the dawn of day,
And your clouds will hike away.
