Perry Desmond-Davies: Listen

The *Happy* Folk Song!

(Perry Desmond-Davies)

You say everything I write is serious and sad

You say that life can't be that rough, “Honey, it ain't that bad!”

So I thought I'd write a tune with your request in mind

It's the happiest, funniest, silliest, sunniest tune that I could find, so...

 

La la la la la la la la

Here's your damn happy song

La la la la la la la la

Here's your damn happy song

La la-la la la la la la

Here's your damn happy song

La la la la la la la la

I hope you like your happy song!

 

Folk music gets a bad rap, it can be misunderstood

Just because it sounds depressing doesn't mean it isn't good

So here it is, per your request, just to prove you wrong:

Not only is it funny, but you can sing along (sing along):

 

La la la la la la la la

Here's your damn happy song

La la la la la la la la

Here's your damn happy song

La la-la la la la la la

Here's your damn happy song

La la la la la la la la

I hope you like your happy song!

 

Now it's true that we folksingers like to tell our tale of woe, woe, woe

But just to prove I'm in your groove, I've done it: here you go:

 

La la la la la la la la

Here's your damn happy song

La la la la la la la la

Here's your damn happy song

Skiddly-dat-do-dad-n-do-dah-day

Here's your damn happy song

La la la la la la la la

I hope you like your happy song!
