If I see one more smiling face in a magazine
If I see one more pretty girl on my TV screen
Everybody's pretending, future's burning real bright
All good children go to heaven, God's still on our side
He's gonna make it up to you, He's gonna make it up to you
Baby in this life

So much pain in the faces that we wear behind the smiles
We keep too much inside, way too much inside
Baby stand up and be the one to testify

Is Everybody Happy? NO!
Is Everybody Happy? NO!
Is Everybody Happy? I don't think so

If I hear one more lover promise me everything
If I hear one more lonesome ol' cowboy start to sing
Everybody's elected to carry the party song
You can't be too protected baby, you can't be too strong
Never let'em get to you, never let'em get to you
Baby in this life
We live in a quiet kind of desperation here
We lock it up inside, lock it up inside
Baby get on up and be the one to testify
Tell me how you feel

Is Everybody Happy? NO!
Is Everybody Happy? NO!
Is Everybody Happy? I don't think so

Is Everybody Happy? NO!
