with Gordon Jenkins & his Orchestra
Mix some kindness with some fun,
Then add a touch of April sun,
Blend with a soft spoken word and when you're done, You'll have a happiness cocktail,
I'll have a happiness cocktail!
Pour some laughter in your brew,
Plus a stolen kiss or two,
Then an open fire and a dream, and when you're through,
You'll have a happiness cocktail, yes yes yes!
When your wife beats you, just say,
"My dear, you're looking younger every day!",
And get that tired look off your fizz,
You're just as good as any other man is good good good!
If the dreams you dream aren't coming true
And happiness seems overdue,
Give me your hand and I'll tell you what I'll do,
I'll make a happiness cocktail just for you!
