I wanna be happy I don't wanna be sad
I wanna be a good boy I don't wanna be bad
I wanna be happy
Yeah I wanna be happy so bad

I wanna be happy - Yeah I really do
But everybody's saying I'm no good for you
They know that I'm a cretin and I know it's true
But I don't care

I wanna see you at Kenmore Square - Yeah
And on the Bowery too
And in Toranto on Queen Street
Or on Belmont Avenue

Cause I don't wanna be alone and sad no more
And I've been through this before
Can't you understand this much is true
I wanna be happy with you
It's what I wanna do
I wanna be happy with you

Riding the surf in Doheny baby
Walking on Mission Street too
Cruisin' down El Cajon Boulevard
And at First Avenue
