  • I can see by your grin
    That you're trembling within
    It's all over town, cheer down
    And the smile on your face
    Is sometimes out of place
    Don't mind, no frowns, cheer down

    If your hair should fall
    If your shares should crash
    You'll get by even without getting a rash

    There's no tears to be shed
    I'm gonna love you instead
    I want you around, cheer down

    When your teeth drop out
    You'll get by even without taking a bite

    If your dog should be dead
    I'm gonna love you instead
    The world loves a clown, cheer down
    I want you around, cheer down Writer/s: George Harrison, Tom Petty
    Publisher: BMG Rights Management

  • Paige from Dumont, NjGeorge got the term "cheer down" from Olivia, his wife. Whenever George would get excited about something she would tell him to "cheer down" :)
