Pretend (1953)
(wm) Lew Douglas, Cliff Parman, and Frank Lavere (P) Nat King Cole
Pretend you’re happy when you’re blue; it isn’t very hard to do.
And you’ll find happiness without an end whenever you pretend.
Remember, anyone can dream;
And nothing’s bad as it may seem.
The little things you haven’t got could be a lot if you pretend.

You’ll find a love you can share, one you can call all your own.
Just close your eyes, s/he’ll be there. You’ll never be alone.
And if you sing this melody, you’ll be pretending just like me.
The world is mine, it can be yours, my friend,
So why don’t you pretend?
