"Happy Boy" as written by Trevor Tanner, Nicholas Crown and Jan Kaliki....
Down in the depths
Hidden from sight
My secret identity

And there's a big black dog
Yes a raging canine
Running blind at nothing
Running blind at nothing

Into the valley with a secret sin
Up the stairs with a friend called Jimmy
Walking like ghosts in a sea of tin
Moving it up with a friend called Jimmy

Oh, such a happy boy today
Blew my family clear away
(I'm) going to university
What do you think now?
Such a happy boy today
Listen to the people say,
"Joy of joys, oh happy day"

Look up in the air
There behind a cloud
My dream and desire

And there's a weather man
He's got his cap in his hand
He says he understands
He says he understands

Something happened in the world today
Up the stairs with a friend called Jimmy
I want to live like the folks in the bay
I'm moving it up with a friend called Jimmy

Oh, such a happy boy today
Blew my family clear away
(I'm) going to university
What do you think now?
Such a happy boy today
Listen to the people say,
"Joy of joys, oh happy day"

Something happened in the world today
Up the stairs with a friend called Jimmy
I want to live like the folks in the bay
I'm moving it up with a friend called Jimmy

Oh, such a happy boy today
Blew my family clear away
(I'm) going to university
What do you think now?
Such a happy boy today
Listen to the people say,
"Joy of joys, oh happy day"

Such a happy boy today
Such a happy boy today

    General CommentA shame nobody commented this song, it's really great, I love the Bolshoi. I don't know the story behind this song, anybody cares to share some info on this ?

    General CommentThis song is about a young man breaking free from an oppressive family and going to university where he's free to be himself and rebel. I suspect it may relate to Trevor Tanner's own sense of freedom after leaving home- he was brought up in a strict Christian family, and his upbringing is referred to in many other Bolshoi lyrics.

    General CommentIt's the coming out of a young gay caballero. His parents will be surprised when they learn their son likes the sword, and the gay caballero doesn't care what his parents or the neighbors or anyone else thinks. He just wants to be free to love his sweetheart
