Sing Happy

(Kander-Ebb)


Sing me a happy song
About robins in spring
Sing me a happy song
With a happy ending
Some cheerful rondelet
About catching the ring
Sing happy

Sing me a sonnet
About rolling in gold
Some peppy melody
About rainbows blending
Nothing with phrases
"You're out in the cold"
Sing happy

Tell me tomorrow's
Gonna be peaches and cream
Assure me clouds are lined
With a silver lining
Say how you realize
An impossible dream
Sing me a happy song

Play me a madrigal
About trips to the moon
Or some old ballad
All about two eyes shining
It can't be loud enough
For a moment too soon
Sing happy

Now, no need reminding me
How it all fell apart
I need no lyrics
Singing of stormy weather
There's quite enough around me
That's breaking my heart
Please keep it happy!

I'm only on the market
For love and laughter
I'll let you serenade me
Until dawn comes along
Just make it a happy
Keep it a happy song
