Iím a very ordinary man Trying to work out lifeís happy plan Doing unto others as Iíd like to have them doing unto me When I find a very lonely soul Soon be-kinda-comes my only goal I feel so much better when I tell them my philosophy I want to be happy But I wonít be happy Till I make you happy too. Lifeís really worth living When we are mirth giving Why canít I give some to you When skies are grey and you say you are blue Iíll send the sun smiling through I want to be happy But I wonít be happy Till I make you happy too. (Orchestral interlude) When skies are grey and you say you are blue Iíll send the sun smiling through I want to be happy But I wonít be happy Till I make you happy too. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2004)
