The Happy Song
Otis Redding Lyrics


When I sing this song y'all, lord
Singing it for my baby
She's the only one, can bring me joy
That's why, I sing these happy songs, they go

Dum, dum, baby, dee-dum-dum
Dum, dum, baby, dee-dum-dum
Dum, dum, baby, dee-dum-dum, come on now
Happy song, happy song, now
On a cold rainy windy night, huh
She shut all my doors, she cut out the light
She cut off the light
She holds me and squeeze me tight
She tells me "big O, everything's all right"

Then I go dum, dum, baby, dee-dum-dum, play it again
Dum, dum, baby, dee-dum-dum, do it again
Dum, dum, baby, dee-dum-dum, come on now
Those happy songs happy, happy songs

Come on

Bring my breakfast to the table
When I go to work she know I'm able
Do my job, I come back in
You oughta see my baby's face, she just grin, grin grin, I go

Dum, dum, baby, dee-dum-dum, play it again
Dum, dum, baby, dee-dum, sing them happy songs
Lovely, lovely songs
Sweet soul songs
Those good old happy songs
It gives ya such a feeling
A lovely lovely feeling
It makes you want to shout
In fact it knocks you out
Said, happy happy songs
Those good old lovely songs
Those sweet nursery rhyme songs
Those good old lovely songs
Those sweet soul music songs
Those good old, good old songs
Happy, happy songs
