"Be Happy" as written by Mary J. Blige, Curtis Mayfield, Gilbert Alexander Askey, Arlene Delvalle, Jean Claude Olivier and Sean J. Combs....
How can I love somebody else
If I can't love myself enough to know
When it's time,
Time to let go
Sing

All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet
All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet

I ask for the sign
From the sweet Lord above
I know the answer is in front of me
But when you think you're in love
You only see what you wanna see
And all I see is me for you and you for me

Oh I cannot hide the way I feel inside (No I don't know why)
I don't know why but every day I wanna cry (Every day I wanna cry)
If I give you one more try to these rules, will you abide?
And if I mean anything to you, would it make everything all right?

All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet
All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet

All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet
All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet

I just wanna be so, so, happy
But the answer lies in me
I do believe
That we can be happy
I said I wanna be happy, yeah

Life is too short
To be tryin' to play some games
Now take some time and think about
If it's really worth losing me
Why must it be this way
Why do you have to play with my mind
All the time
Help me sing it (All I really want is for me to be happy)
Oh, just help me sing it (All I really want is for me to be happy)
Yeah (All I really want is for me to be happy)
Oh you know I wanna be happy, yeah yeah (All I really want is for me to be happy)

All I really want is to be happy (I don't wanna have to worry about nothin' no more)
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet
All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet (Said I wanna be, said I wanna be, said I wanna be)

All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet (I said I wanna be happy)
All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet (To find a love that's mine, oh it'll be so fine)

All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet
All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet

All I really want is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet
