Everybody oughta sing a happy song
Be thankful to be a livin'
The good things that you get
Are just interest on your givin'.

And walkin' a mile kind words in a smile
To everyone you meet all along
Can multiply with each passin' by
And we all sing a happy song.

Well, it's a sad ol' world that we're a livin'
A man told me yesterday
Well, he said I didn't have any reason to care
'Cause tomorrow I'd be blown away.

Well, I wondered, was he right and
I wear all night until the new day came along
Then the sun shone bright and the world looked bright
So I sang me a happy song.

Everybody oughta sing a happy song
Be thankful to be a livin'
The good things that you get
Are just interest on your givin'.

And walkin' a mile kind words in a smile
To everyone you meet all along
Can multiply with each passin' by
And we all sing a happy song.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, today you need a program
To see who to shootin' who
And I hear folks a sayin'
That tomorrow we'll all be through.

'Cause we got a bum and they got a bum
And all God's children got a bum
I don't know what's wrong
But we'll all get along
If we just sing a happy song.

Everybody oughta sing a happy song
Be thankful to be a livin'
The good things that you get
Are just interest on your givin'.

And walkin' a mile kind words in a smile
To everyone you meet all along
Can multiply with each passin' by
And we all sing a happy song.

Everybody oughta sing a happy song
Be thankful to be a livin'
The good things that you get
Are just interest on your givin'.

And walkin' a mile kind words in a smile
To everyone you meet all along
Can multiply with each passin' by
And we all sing a happy song.

Can multiply with each passin' by
And we all sing a happy song.
