Be Happy!

Children’s Songbook (1989, 2017), p. 265

1. Be happy like the little bird On boughs beneath the blue;

Be happy, happy all day long, And others will be too! Be happy all day long! Each day you’ll find it true That he whose heart has joy and song Gives joy to others too.

2. Be happy like the little brook While running meadows through;

Be happy, happy all day long, And others will be too! Be happy all day long! Each day you’ll find it true That he whose heart has joy and song Gives joy to others too.
