"Only You Can Make You Happy" as written by Annie Hart, Erika Spring Forster and Heather Anne D'angelo....
Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh

Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh (la la la la la la la la)
Only you can make you happy, oh (la la la la la la la la)

(la la la la la la la la)
(na na na na na na na na)

(na na na na na, oh, oh, oh)

    General CommentPeople tend to blame their sorrows on external sources. It's about accepting the situation and making progress toward being happy. Refusal to wallow.

    General Commentlizclayton's comment is quite accurately and most possibly right regarding the matter of these lyrics from the Brooklyn trio, not to mention the excellency in brevity skills used here . I can only endorse and couldn't have said better . Chances are that this song really ain't about individualism, or at least, certainly not as a way out .

    General CommentThis song I guess is about not relying on other people to make you happy, but being able to explore within yourself to find the worth in your life, because really when you manage to find your own stable happiness you know that it can't be taken from you, since you can only depend on yourself in a stable way (whereas if you find happiness in someone else - like a lover, this can be destroyed when they leave)
