Eh-eh, eh-eh ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh aha-aha
Eh-eh, eh-eh ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh aha-aha

I love that lavender blond
The way she moves the way she walks
I touch myself can't get enough
And in the silence of the night
Through all the tears and all the lies
I touch myself and it's alright

Just give in, don't give up, baby
Open up your heart and your mind to me
Just know when that glass is empty
That the world is gonna bend, yeah

Happy in the club with a bottle of red wine
Stars in our eyes 'cause we're having a good time, eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
Be your best friend, yeah, I'll love you forever
Up in the clouds we'll be higher than ever, eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die and it's alright

Eh-eh, eh-eh, ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh, aha-aha
Eh-eh, eh-eh, ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh, aha-aha

I am as vain as I allow
I do my hair, I gloss my eyes
I touch myself all through the night
And when something falls out of place
I take my time, I put it back
I touch myself 'til I'm on track

Just give in, don't give up, baby
Open up your heart and your mind to me
Just know when that glass is empty
That the world is gonna bend, yeah

Happy in the club with a bottle of red wine
Stars in our eyes 'cause we're having a good time, eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
Be your best friend, yeah, I'll love you forever
Up in the clouds we'll be higher than ever, eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die and it's alright

So happy I could die and it's alright
So happy I could die and it's alright

Eh-eh, eh-eh, ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh, aha-aha
Eh-eh, eh-eh, ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh, aha-aha

Happy in the club with a bottle of red wine
Stars in our eyes 'cause we're having a good time, eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
Be your best friend, yeah, I'll love you forever
Up in the clouds we'll be higher than ever, eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die and it's alright

Happy in the club with a bottle of red wine
Stars in our eyes 'cause we're having a good time, eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
Be your best friend, yeah I'll love you forever




Up in the clouds we'll be higher than ever, eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die and it's alright
