Ya know, Steve, I wish we could just always have
Fun, and never, never, ever have to be sad.
And just always smile and laugh, and sing, and
Play. And just always be having so, so, so, so, so
Much fun. And, never cry, never be sad, never
Have to frown, never have anybody mad at us.
Just always having fun; always laughing, and
Laughing loud, and getting other people to laugh,
Too. And have so much fun and never, never,
Never be sad for any reason. And if anyone would
Ever try to make us sad (or mad), we wouldn't be.
Because we would just be too glad.
And then we would make everyone else glad
Because our "Gladdys" would be so big, everyone
Else would have to be glad, too. And, Steve, I
Never, ever wanna cry, and I know you don't
Either. And I hope that we will never, never have
To cry. And if we just laugh a real lot, and laugh
Loud 'n' hard and long, we will never, ever have
To cry. And if anyone tries to make us cry, we
Will make them laugh instead; we will make
Them glad and we will keep them from feeling
Bad, and we will never be sad, 'cause it's so
Fun to be happy, and I always wanna be happy
With you Steve, and I never want it to be a
Cloudy day. I always want the sun to shine.
And even if one day the sun doesn't shine,
We'll pretend the sun is shining. And we'll be
So happy, and we'll just laugh and laugh
Anyway. And pretty soon, all the dark clouds
Will go away. Because we can't have those dark
Clouds, no! We will always be happy, and
Having fun instead. And if it should ever start
To rain little drops of rain, we will pretend it isn't
Raining. We will go inside and pretend there's
No rain, and sure enough, our gladness will
Make all the rain go away.
("They told me I was gonna get a balloon.")
And, Steve, you and I are so happy; and, and,
Steve, we will just take our happiness with us
Everywhere. We could go into bad
Neighborhoods where very sad and very bad
People live. But we'd make them happy, and
They would be sad or bad anymore. And we
Would walk the streets of the worst places in
The world, and make everyone so happy. Why,
Why, we could go to New York, and make all the
People in New York so happy. Why, we could
Even go to Tokyo. Why, Steve, we could go to
All the big cities, all over the world, making
People happy wherever we go. And make 'em
Laugh and make 'em sing.
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-. Make them sing.
So many little, come on everybody sing along
With me now; just everybody go, do-do do
Dodo do do, do-do-do; whatever you feel like
Singing; just go do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do do
Do do do, etc...
