[Verse 1:]
It might seem crazy what I'm about to say
Sunshine she's here, you can take a break
I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don't care baby by the way


[Chorus:]
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room
without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth

Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

[Verse 2:]
Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, and don't hold it back, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I'll be just fine, yeah,
No offense to you, don't waste your time
Here's why


[Chorus]
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof

Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

Hey, come on

[Bridge:]
(happy)
Bring me down
Can't nothing bring me down
My level's too high
Bring me down
Can't nothing bring me down
I said (let me tell you now)

Bring me down
Can't nothing bring me down
My level's too high
Bring me down
Can't nothing bring me down
I said

[Chorus 2x]
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

Hey, come on

(happy)
Bring me down… can't nothing…
Bring me down… my level's too high…
Bring me down… can't nothing…
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)

[Chorus 2x]

Come on

    Going through a rough time this song is making me smile. The beat and lyrics brings you in an instant better mood. Yes, I feel like a room without a roof, but there's always a shelter to hide, with people who will help you.
    And you have to make your own happiness someday. Happiness is the base to everything. This song tells it all, awesome Pharrell Williams.

    To be happy or not to be happy? That is the question. To be happy means to smile all the time when you want to and also say good nice comments to people. Other people might be having a bad day but that doesn't mean that you can't change that frown upside down! It's good to help other people turn from sad or mad to happy and glad. Another way to help someone feel good is to laugh with them or to clap your hands (as these words was said in the song) them he/she will join along. So do you know the answer to my question? Because if you don't then my question will remain unanswered.

    When you feel sad, this song is always ready to cheer you up and makes you more happy than you think! This song is good for everyone in the family. I have a question.

    Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. A variety of biological, psychological, religious, and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify It's sources. Various research groups, including positive psychology, endeavor to apply the scientific method to answer questions about what "happiness" is, and how it might be attained. It's of such fundamental importance to the human condition that "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" were deemed to be unalienable rights by the United States Declaration of Independence. Happiness is a fuzzy concept and can mean many different things to many people. Part of the challenge of a science of happiness is to identify different concepts of happiness, and where applicable, split them into their components. Related concepts are well-being, quality of life and flourishing. Some commentators focus on the difference between the hedonistic tradition of seeking pleasant and avoiding unpleasant experiences, and the eudaimonic tradition of living life in a full and deeply satisfying way.

    The lyrics, tempo and beat of this song are "addictive" in a great way. One cannot help but feel the joy and positive energy put into this work. I believe this tune will be one that is played and reme
    mbered for decades to come, destined to be one that becomes an anthem of good times and good feelings. A CLASSIC!
