If happiness is a thing money can buy,
Only the rich will have a cause to smile.
If happiness were sold for a price,
Maybe all I'ld have is sorrow and frown.
If happiness were a seed sown on one man's land,
Of course, many would have been starved to death by now
But happiness is a gift bestowed on me from above,
Like the rain, sunshine and the breath I breathe.
Happiness is a miracle that begins with a giggle, a smile, or a laughter
It ignites my soul, lightens my heart and brightens my face.
Happiness is a seed I have found aplenty in me,
It has grown wider than the oaks and higher than the palms.
This happy tree has more fruit than I alone can eat
Little wonder I share joy, love, and smiles with every passersby.
Happiness has taken hold of me.
And I am happiness personified.
