Lyrics

Why am I happy
Why am I gay
Me and my baby
Just moved out today

(Where)
On Happiness Street
Corner Sunshine Square

Now we don’t quarrel
Now we’re so glad
Glad that we’re living
Where love is the fad

(Where)
On Happiness Street
Corner Sunshine Square

They never heard of blues
They never heard of fears
They never heard of woes
They never heard of tears
That’s the reason folks
Are happy there

So won’t you
Pack up your troubles
Take my advice
You and your baby
Can find paradise

(Where)
On Happiness Street
Corner Sunshine Square

(Where)
To Happiness Street
Corner Sunshine Square

(Where)
To Happiness Street
Corner Sunshine Square

They never heard of blues
They never heard of fears
They never heard of woes
They never heard of tears
That’s the reason folks
Are happy there

Oh, so won’t you
Pack up your troubles
Take my advice
You and your baby
Can find paradise

(Where)
On Happiness Street
Happiness Street
Come on, Happiness Street
Corner Sunshine Square
