Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect
And whistle a happy tune so no one will suspect I'm afraid.
While shivering in my shoes, I try to tell each toe
To whistle a happy tune and no one ever knows I'm afraid.
The result of this deception is very strange to tell,
For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well.
I whistle a happy tune, and every single time,
The happiness in the tune convinces me that I'm not afraid.
Make believe you're brave, that's the trick to take you far,
You may as brave as you make believe you are
(whistle)
You may as brave as you make believe you are.
 
The result of this deception is very strange to tell,
For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well.
I whistle a happy tune, and every single time,
The happiness in the tune convinces me that I'm not afraid.
Make believe you're brave, that's the trick to take you far,
You may as brave as you make believe you are
(whistle)
You may as brave as you make believe you are.
