Cheer Down Lyrics
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...

The real story is that “Cheer down” was something George’s wife Olivia would say to him when he’d get overly enthusiastic about something. He’d get going about something and she’d say something like, “OK, cheer down big fella.” George decided to use it as a song title.

You can get in as much trouble for acting too happy and crazy as you can being all down and depressed. Sometimes we even laugh at things we shouldn't. Besides that Ill admit I'm confused about the song

This song is a "Stick it To" Paul McCartney! It's all about Beatle Paul! Listen to the words.. Paul is always smiling, has fake hair and has a dumb smile on his face no matter what. George is telling him to be himself, and don't worry.....because when the world fall in, Gegorge promises he will still be his friend, even though right now they are estraged from each other...

this songs title was a misprint beer down was what it should of been, the travelling willowby's was a group of recording artist's all getting together to party and enjoy each others company. so before they started singing another song someone shouted ok lads beer down lets boogie...

I always thought it meant that some people put on a mask of cheerfulness when they're down that is a bit too exuberant to be believed. Everyone can see it's overcompensation, and it becomes annoying because it's not honest. It is also unnecessary.
Nobody wants to be around a perpetual sad sack, but the overly cheerful optimist can be just as much of a downer. While we appreciate attempts to remain positive and not bring everyone down, it's better to tone it down a notch, find some middle ground, and be real. We'll love you and support you regardless.
