The Staple Singers – Heavy Makes You Happy lyrics

Ahh, whoa - great gosh a mighty...

Say it, yall

Tell me, tell me, tell me, come on

Well, well

I've been trying to find what's heavy that's been messing up my mind
I think I found the answer, cause it was right there all the time

Heavy makes you happy, I just got to say
Put on your heavy, if I can't feel this way

Come on, come on

Do it, do it, do it, do it

By talking to my people, you know that it occurred to me
It's more than just a feeling - it's a philosophy

Heavy makes you happy, drying up your drink
Oh, spread a little heavy and it makes somebody sing

Come on, yall

Right on, right on, right on

A little bit softer, now

Oh, do it easy, now

Lay it on down
