Music & lyrics ©1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

Everyone knows that we’re happy, happy
Everyone, everywhere’s happy, happy
We hope that you know we’re happy, happy
We hope that you, too are happy, happy!

We’re here to entertain, we want you to remain
We’ll do our very best, to keep you at your happiest
We want to see you smile, just for a little while
We want to satisfy you, yes to satisfy

We want you to stay
So please don’t go away (please don’t go away)
And should we get risqué (risqué)
We remind you right away.... that

Everyone knows that we’re happy, happy
Everyone, everywhere’s happy, happy
We hope that you know we’re happy, happy
We hope that you, too are happy, happy!

We’ve got a great show for you we sure hope
You like a great show, because we got one
It features people, hap, happy people
Singing some happy songs, singing happy

We want you to stay
So please don’t go away
And should we get risqué
Would you care anyway?
If we got risqué

What if we got, what if we got, what of we got risqué?
Hope that it’s not, hope that it’s not
Hope that it’s not risqué

Oh Oh No No

Visions, ideas that are not suited
Tend to corrupt after they’ve polluted
We’d better rid ourselves of these unhappy things

Everyone everywhere must be happy
Those are the rules so let’s make it (Snap) snappy
Everyone tell me how you’re feeling right now...

Happy...happy...happy...happy ooo...ooo...ooo.ooo.o.o.o

Everyone knows that we’re happy, happy
Everyone, everywhere’s happy, happy
We hope that you know we’re happy, happy
We hope that you, too are happy, happy!

Sorry we did not mean to get carried away
But we must make sure you’re happy
Happy at all costs, happy regardless
And now it’s time to, time to be happy

Happiest Girl: I was walking down a happy road
When a happy birdie said “Tweet, tweet, tweet”
All: In the happiest way!
Happiest Girl: And now I”m happy
And I have no worries
And all I need are the little birdies
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
Happiest Girl: What would I do if they all went away
I wish they all would come outside to play
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
Happiest Girl: So I took one and put it in a cage
Now I am the happiest girl for my age
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
Happiest Girl: Happy, happy
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
Happiest Girl: Happy, happy
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!

(Bad News Unhappy guy interrupts...)

Everyone knows that you must be happy
That is the rule and so that is that
And if I were you
I would make sure that you were quite
Happy...happy...happy...happy
(we’re so happy we can hardly take it, oooo)
