Gonna sing this song y'all
Singin' it for my baby
She's the only one can bring me joy
That's why I sing these happy songs
They go dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Come on now happy song, happy song now

On a cold, rainy, windy night
She shut all the doors
She cut off the lights
She holds me and squeezes me tight
She tells me Big O everything's all right
And I go dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Play it again dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Come on now those happy songs, happy, happy songs

Come on now
Bring my breakfast to the table
When I go to work she knows I'm able
Do my job, I come back in
You oughta see my baby's face

She just grins, grins, grins
I go dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Play it again dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Sing them happy songs
Lovely, lovely songs
Sweet soul songs
Those good old happy songs
Give you such a feeling
A lovely, lovely, feeling
Makes you wanna shout
It knocks you, knocks you out
Happy, happy songs
Those good old lovely songs
Those sweet soul music songs
