"I Could Be Happy" as written by and John Mcelhone David James Mckinven....
I would like to climb
High in a tree
I could be happy
I could be happy
Or go to Skye
On my holiday
I could be happy
I could be happy
Maybe swim a mile
Down the Nile
I could be happy
I could be happy

All of these things I do
All of these things I do
To get away from you

Get away
Runaway
Far away
How do I
Get away
Runaway
Far away
How do I escape from you

I would like to climb
High in a tree
I could be happy
I could be happy
Or go to Skye
On my holiday
I could be happy
I could be happy
Maybe swim a mile
Down the Nile
I could be happy
I could be happy

All of these things I do
All of these things I do
To get away from you

Get away
Runaway
Far away
How do I
Get away
Runaway
Far away
How do I escape from you

I would like to climb
High in a tree
I could be happy
I could be happy
Or go to Skye
On my holiday
I could be happy
I could be happy
Maybe swim a mile
Down the Nile
I could be happy
I could be happy

Get away
Runaway
Far away
How do I
Get away
Runaway
Far away
How do I escape from you

Get away
Runaway
Far away
How do I
Get away
Runaway
Far away
How do I escape from you

    General CommentCannot believe no one has commented on this song. It's so simple. She is unhappy and longs to go to a bliss place away from the bearer of her pain.

    General CommentWhat a great sound this little band had. Had that Japanese punkyness about it. Lovely!

    General CommentNot as simple as it looks! I think she is expressing ambivalence and confusion.
    There is contradiction in the words. At first she talks about the desire to do various
    things that would get her away. Then later She says that she does them.

    The song's video is very revealing. There is someone dressed in a lion costume that very propablly represents the 'man' she is trying to escape. A cuddly lion that she kisses at the end of the video.
