Buy Me Happiness

Anybody got some happiness?

Anybody got some joy?

Can I buy it in a cup,

will you sell it to me?

All I see is sadness,

All I see are tears,

but all I want is happiness,

I hear it might be on sale,

I'll give you a run for your money.

I'll give you a barter right here.

Fifty percent of poverty,

Ninety off despair,

[break]

I can't buy you happiness,

I can't buy you joy,

I'll eat a plate of it daily,

I'll smile when I want to cry,

Fifty percent of ignorance,

Ninety off laziness,

I can't sell you happiness,

For happiness isn't real.
