"Push Those Blues Away" as written by and Mick Jones....
"I don't know why I got those type of blues tonight, but uh
Something told me tonight to uh
Get it like I was gettin' it when I first started
You may think I'm puttin' you on, but uh, please believe me, I feel okay
And when I get that feeling like that I go be that
And play a tune that goes something like this"

One, two, three, four

Paint strain drives you insane, too much pressure in you're brain
Chain retain try to maintain the life you lead, keep it humane
Explain the game try to sustain a little hope, who needs to complain?
If your life's mundane, who's to blame? Nothing in this life is ever certain

You gotta push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

Hope you dope, there's no need to mope, everyone here is trying to cope
On a soapy slope we grab and grope, living inside a kaleidoscope
The Pope don't stope, needs a microscope, driving him out on the daily tightrope
You think you've got the answer, but it ain't no, nothing in life is ever certain

You gotta push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

Who knows what's in store, what on earth we looking for?
I force myself to push away my blues

You gotta push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

Try to hold yourself true find a way through, you can review the thankless few
Making life hard by turning the screw, who knows what's the best to do?
Slip the grip of the voodoo, what is due will come to you
Nothing in life is ever certain

You gotta push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and (you got to) push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

You gotta push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

It's not too late to start the hate, the people gotta learn to relate
It could be great if we tried to go straight, no more lies to aggravate
Some can't wait to grab the bait, knowing the vibes that it creates
While we wait it out in a right state, nothing in life is ever certain

You gotta push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

You gotta push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Pushing it away!

You gotta push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness

Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Come on and push those blues away
Replace them with happiness
Oh, happy days
