Perhaps one way of Honoring Roger and KNOWING who this GREAT Person JUST MIGHT Really be is to Understand His ”Signature Line”.

”Always Look On The Brighter Side Of Life” A song written by Eric Idle for Monty Pythons … ”Life Of Brian”

UTube has a number of Videos on it that I could link you all to.

HOWEVER! ....Listening to, and Watching a Video is NOT the same as Understanding what the WORDS really mean.

To me …the WORDS that follow ARE Roger Clark.


“Cheer up, Brian. You know what they say.
Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle,
Don’t grumble, ....give a wistle!
And this’ll help things turn out for the best…
And….........always look on the bright side of life!

Always look on the bright side of life…
If life seems jolly rotten,
There’s something you’ve forgotten!
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing,

When you’re feeling in the dumps,
Don’t be silly chumps,
Just purse your lips and whistle—that’s the thing!
And… always look on the bright side of life…

Come on!

Always look on the bright side of life…

For life is quite absurd,
And death’s the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow!
Forget about your sin—give the audience a grin,
Enjoy it—it’s the last chance anyhow!

So always look on the bright side of death!
Just before you draw your terminal breath.
Life’s a piece of shit,
When you look at it.

Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true,
You’ll see it’s all a show,
Keep ‘em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you!

And always look on the bright side of life (whistle)

Always look on the bright side of life (whistle)”


Those are the WORDS. They are also OUR Dear Friend ROGER CLARK!!

Thank You for being who you are Roger. I’m PROUD to know you as a Friend and “MY BUDDY”.

Warmest Regards: Rick
