Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm a very ordinary man
Trying to work out life's happy plan
Doing unto others as I'd like to have them doing unto me
Verse 2
When I find a very lonely soul
Soon be-kinda-comes my only goal
I feel so much better when I tell them my philosophy
Verse 3
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy too.
Verse 4
Life's really worth living
When we are mirth giving
Why can't I give some to you
Verse 5
When skies are gray and you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through
Verse 6
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy too.
Verse 7
When skies are gray and you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through
Verse 8
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy too.
