(Berry/Buck/Mills/Stipe)



Shiny happy people laughing
Meet me in the crowd
People, people
Throw your love around
Love me, love me
Take it into town
Happy, happy
Put it in the ground
Where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

(chorus)
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands
Take it, take it
There's no time to cry
Happy, happy
Put it in your heart
Where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

(repeat chorus)

Hey, here we go!

(repeat chorus 4x)

    Shiny happy people, meet me in the crowd
    you're just one of many.

    People, people, throw your love around
    although love is supposed to be shared with only one or a few, i say throw it around as if it were not precious.

    Love me, love me, take it into town. Share your precious love with me or share with complete strangers.

    Happy, happy, put it in the ground. Where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine. Bury your happiness in the dirt. Money is more important.

    Everyone around, love them, love them, put it in your hands. Give your love away to strangers.

    Take it, take it, there's no time to cry. Tough it out and just keep pouring out your unappreciated love.

    Happy, happy, put it in your heart. Cheer up.

    Where tomorrow shines, gold and silver shine. Your love will be forgotten, replaced by money.
