Pharrell Williams – Happy lyrics
[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

    I tend to think of a dog getting a belly rub. The person rubbing the dog is happy because that's what he/she wants to do. The dog feels like a room without a roof because he's getting said belly rub (and is therefore happy.) No need to analyze happiness - be happy for no reason at all - do things that you want to do because it makes you happy.

    I think it the song's hidden meaning is I am happy but you need to know why your happy and you have to be happy for a good reason to be more happy and to have more happiness. It also means that you should be happy if you want to not control it. You should go wild if you feel like it and explode the roof of with noise and happiness.
