The sound of applause is delicious It's a thrill to have the world at your feet The praise of the crowd, it's exciting But I've learned that's not what makes a life complete There's one thing you can do for the rest of your days That's worth more than applause The screaming crowd, the bouquets... Make someone happy Make just one someone happy Make just one heart the heart you sing to One smile that cheers you One face that lights when it nears you One man you're ev'rything to Fame if you win it Comes and goes in a minute Where's the real stuff in life to cling to Love is the answer Someone to love is the answer Once you've found him, build your world around him Make someone happy Make just one someone happy And you will be happy, too (Transcribed from the Doris Day recording by Mel Priddle - October 2008)
