When I'm feeling down, with no friends around
And the kind of thoughts that I detest
Do I get sad and start to feel all bad?
No! I choose happiness

When things don't turn out right
And people start to argue and fight
Do I just not try and start to cry?
No! I choose happiness

Happiness, (hap, hap, happiness) Oh, happiness
When life goes and puts me to the test,
I choose happiness
Oh Happiness, (hap, hap, happiness) Oh, happiness
Whenever I want to be my best
I choose happiness

I won't let myself get those Face Book blues
With nothing to post but bad news
I'll get myself together with a group of my friends and
Shake it, shake it, shake it till the sadness ends – brrrrrrrrrrrrr!

When grown ups are getting on my case
About me messing up my space
Do I shout out loud?
No, I'll make them proud
When I choose happiness

Ha Ha Happiness, Ha Ha Happiness,
Ha Ha Happiness, Ha Ha Happiness
Ha Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, (laugh)
I choose happiness! Yeah!
