THE HAPPY SONG
The Box Tops


Verse:
Listen here, band up there, on the stand,
Sing a joyful song so we can all sing too
Hum a merry tune to us that fits our mood
Simple little feelings we'll derive from you'
Sing us a happy little song that we can dance to

Sing us a song, a song of love and happiness
A flowing, going ride and, oh, please do your best
Light and fast, you know, but still, with tenderness'
Sing us a happy little song, now, and we can do the rest
We could light the night if we just let feelings flow'
Just let ourselves go'
Don't you know?

(instrumental)

We could light the night if we just let feelings flow'
Just let ourselves go'
Don't you know?

(repeat verse)
