Eve -ning shad -ows make me blue.  When each wea -ry day is through.
How I long to be with you,  My Hap -pi -ness.
Ev -'ry day I rem -i -nisce,  Dream -ing of your ten -der kiss,
Al -ways think -ing how I miss,  My Hap -pi -ness.
A mil -lion years it seems have gone by since we shared our dreams.
But I'll hold you a -gain,  there'll be no blue mem -o -ries then.
Wheth -er skies are gray or blue,  An -y place on earth will do,
Just as long as I'm with you.  My Hap -pi -ness. ness.
