I know that my surroundings aren't the very best
But my soul's on fire and won't let me rest
I'm doing things I really shouldn't do I guess I'm just pursuing happiness
I'm living much too fast a pace with two to care
I'm just looking for a dream that I can share
I'm sinking fast but no one hears my SOS I'm just pursuing happiness

Almost everyone I know has someone to worry
Someone to cheer them when they're low
So if I walk by you in too big a hurry it's because I got no place to go
Wherever people gather that's where I'll be found
In hope that someone's hand will reach and slow me down
Behind me I can feel that demon loneliness I'm just pursuing happiness
[ el.banjo ]
Almost everyone I know...
I'm just persuing happiness I'm just pursuing happiness
