From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/19/18:

My eleven month old was sitting in her high chair, twisting and moving all over the place. My wife said to me, “Straighten her up.”

My wife didn't find it as amusing as I did.

Pretend

Written by Lew Douglas, Cliff Parman, and Frank Levere, 1952 

Recorded by Nat King Cole (17 Mar 1919 – 15 Feb 1965)


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, she'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?
 
  <instrumental interlude>
 
  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?
