One day we were busking
down in the central tunnel
People were laughing and dancing by
and the coins were goin' jingle jangle
A smiling face came up to me
said “Thank you, for making my day
I really love to walk to work this way”

And she said
“You are giving me a chance to smile
No matter what will come my way
A little sparkle for my day
Is what you’re gonna give me for a while
And what we need is a little less stress
And what you’ve got is 30 seconds of happiness”

So we played a jig and we sang up big
And we even sang some old favourites for a while
Then along came a man with frown
An upside down smile
He said “Why don’t you do us all a favour
And go out and get a real job
And earn your pay?”
And we said “We really love to work this way
And what you need is a little less stress
And what we’ve got is 30 seconds of happiness”

The city loves to agitate, to speculate, to
perpetrate
We feel we have to insulate ourselves
We live our life in our briefcase
“Don’t invade my personal space”
We drive home at a reckless pace, oh yeah

And what we need is a little less stress
And what we’ve got is 30 seconds of happiness
We are giving you a chance to smile
No matter what will come your way
A little sparkle for your day
Is what we want to give you for a while

You don’t have to pay it’s for free
No paperwork, no GST
You can even have our personal money back guarantee
30 seconds of happiness
you can get your problems off your chest
if you have no money have no fear
you don’t even have to buy us a beer
We got candy for your ear, oh yeah…
