happy song

sing me a happy song
to ease my regrets
sing me a verse or two
so that i can forget

sing it for my weary thoughts
the tears i cried and my tired feet
sing it for the words i sound
and for the chords that i play wrong

sing me a happy song
to ease my regrets
sing me a verse or two
so that i can forget

sing it for the lost generation
and the teary eyes they leave behind
sing it for the fun we’ve had
and for the price that we’re paying

sing me a happy song
to ease my regret
sing me a verse or two
so that i can forget

sing it for the flowers we wore
and for our years that have withered
sing it for the cry that we were willing to raise
and for the cause that we’ve forgotten

sing us a happy song
and don’t forget all those major chords
give it a simple melody
and make it easy to sing along

and then we’ll sing
sha la la la…
