Otis Redding – Happy Song lyrics

When I sing this song
[I'm] Singing it for my baby
She s the only one that can bring me joy
That's why, I sing these happy songs
They go

Dum dum baby de dum dum
Dum dum baby de dum dum
Dum dum baby de dum dum
[Come on now]
Happy song
Happy song [now]

On a cold rainy windy nicht
She'd shut off the door
She cuts off the light
She holds me and squeeze me tight
She tells me Big O, everythings gonna be all right

Dum dum baby de dum dum
Dum dum baby de dum dum
Dum dum baby de dum dum
[Come on now]
Those Happy songs
Happy, happy song [now]

Come on...
Bring my breakfast to the table
When I go to work
She knows I'm able
Do my chore
I come back in
You wanna see my babys face
[Laughing] Grin, grin grin grin

Dum dum baby de dum dum
Dum dum baby de dum dum
Dum dum baby de dum dum
Sing these happy songs
Lovely lovely song
Sweet soul song [now]
It gives you such a feeling
A lovely lovely feeling
It makes you wanna shout
In fact it knocks you out

Those happy happy songs
Those good old lovely songs
Those sweet soul music songs
Those good old happy songs
