The song is sung by Cee-Lo Green, Brendon Urie (Panic! At The Disco), Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy), Janelle Monae and Travie McCoy (Gym Class Heroes)....
ahhh..ohhh
Well hello is this thing on
Is anybody listening
A brand new day has begun

The first thing that I want do
Make sure that you feel it too
So I'm not the only one

C'mon lift me up (it's a brand new day)
Open up a lil happiness today
So I can be someone new
C'mon and lift me up (to a better way)
Open up a smile on another face
So I can (feel something new)

Open up some happiness
Open up some happiness
Open up some happiness

Oh, excuse me
*Ahem* *Ahem* let me clear my throat
So you can hear clearly every word spoke
Today I woke feeling lovely
Happiness overflowin' knowin' somebody loves me
Just think yesterday I was down and out
Now there's not a single thing for me to frown about
And the same thing can happen to you
Smiling so hard my mouth look like a capital "U"

I want the sun to shine
All the time
Is that too much to ask
Oh, I want to have some fun
I want all my friends to come
Cause it's now or never
Learn the words and sign together

C'mon lift me up (its a brand new day)
Open up a lil happiness today
So I can be someone new
C'mon and lift me up (to a better way)
Open up a smile on another face
So I can (feel something new)

Open up some happiness
Open up some happiness
Open up some happiness

Your heart deserves your trust
A choice made for all of us
The sun will come back tomorrow
There's a message in a bottle
So come on I'll meet you there
There's enough sunshine to share
As long as you know
The bridge between us is a rainbow

C'mon lift me up (its a brand new day)
Open up a lil happiness today
So I can be someone new
C'mon and lift me up (to a better way)
Open up a smile on another face
So I can (feel something new)

Open up some happiness
Open up some happiness
Open up some happiness

    General CommentI heard this song this morning and instantly loved it. It put me in such a good mood. It's pretty straightforeward - The Singers are happy and want to share their happiness to the world so everybody is happy.
    Listening to this song promises happiness.
    ((Panic! At The Disco's myspace says these people are in it -- Brendon (PATD), Patrick (FOB), Travis (GCH), Cee-Lo, Janelle Monae, Butch Waker and Polow Da Don.)) Brendon Urie sings the Chorus, other than that I couldn't tell you, I don't know their voices.

    General CommentI had FOB, Cobra, Panic!, all of them on myspace and I saw a swarm of bulletins when it was released, and once I heard it I was like BLOWN away...

    Yeah here's the description from the song's myspace:

    "Open Happiness is a collaboration written and produced by Butch Walker co-written by Cee-lo Green, remixed by Polow Da Don and performed by Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy), Brendon Urie (Panic at the Disco), Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes), Cee-Lo Green and Janelle Monae that gave these artists the unique chance to come together and create a song to uplift and inspire."

    I just submitted it under FALL OUT BOY because that is arguably the biggest band name of the crew, however, on iTunes, the artist's listed are:

    "Brendon Urie, Cee-Lo Green, Janelle Monae, Patrick Stump & Travis McCoy"

    I really hope any other repliers READ THIS MESSAGE so they can see that is why it's under FOB...

    Although I can't wait for the first

    "THIS ISN'T FALL OUT BOY LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL" comment ^_^

    General CommentI think it'd be better under Butch Walker. only one guy from FOB is in it but Butch produced all the parts of the songs in the different cities. either way it's an.... interesting song.

    General Commenttis a great great song!

    people may better know Cee-Lo from Gnarls Barkley, i am not sure if he is Gnarls or merely a band member, it's all a bit confusing

    my favourite part is when Janelle Monae sings, wow it is pretty amazing sounding and gives the song so much more depth. beautiful :)

    General CommentThis song is actually the coolest song this year!
    It is pretty straightforward and easy to learn to.
    We can all relate to it.
    This song is a response to those emo fanatics who're self righteous and suicidal about life, to make the world a better place if we would all feel happy about ourselves and think happy thoughts.
