Verse:
Why did I sigh, why did I cry, why did I feel so blue?
No -bod -y cared, no -bod -y shared, wor -ries that I went through.
On -ly gray skies greet -ed my eyes ev -'ry morn when I'd wake,
Is -n't it strange what a big change one lit -tle word will make.
 
Chorus:
That's why I'm Hap -py, my ba -by just said "yes",
Oh boy I'm Hap -py to -day.
I said I'm hap -py, I'm go -ing "bugs", I guess,
That's why I'm act -ing this way.
Her lips have told me, What I've been long -ing for,
There's noth -ing more I can say,
Ex -cept I'm Hap -py, my ba -by just said "yes",
That's why I'm Hap -py to day.
