"Happy" as written by and Mishka Frith....
Your legs so long, your smile so sweet
And you move gracefully down the street
Right in the time with the beat
Of my heart, yeah

Your eyes of fire
Your voice choir of angels
You're so beautiful
That I don't really know where I'm to start

When I tell you the truth girl
You run away and cry
When I tell you the truth girl
You run away and cry, yeah

But you're happy, happy, happy
You're so happy with your plastic smile
Are you happy, happy, happy
Are you happy with your plastic smile and a lie

I give you my ocean songs and they go on for miles
But all you wanted to do was walk the aisles of some shopping malls
I won't put down my guard in a world so hard I got to move forward, yes
But it seems that all I'm doing is building walls, yeah

When I tell you the truth girl
You run away and cry
When I tell you the truth girl
You run away and cry

Are you happy, happy, happy
Are you happy with your plastic smile, oh baby
Are you happy, happy, happy
Are you happy with your plastic smile and a lie

When I tell you the truth girl
You run away and cry, yeah
When I tell you the truth girl
You run away and cry

Are you happy, happy, happy
Are you happy with your plastic smile
Are you happy, happy, happy
Are you happy with your plastic smile and a lie

    General Commentwow, i am amazed how this has no comments. this song has so much poetically meaning behind it. mishka is a real genius, and a very deep person.
    "but you are so happy with your plastic smile"
    this could mean that she is not happy at all, and just pulls out a fake smile all the time. or literally has a plastic smile (has had a lip job), telling us how superficial or what kind of person she is. "I give you my ocean songs and they go on for miles
    But all you wanted to do was walk the aisles of some shopping malls"

    in general, i think he is basically telling her what he thinks about her, or that they are not good together, making her cry and run away every time. because she is beautiful ("Your legs so long, your smile so sweet, And you move gracefully down the street, Right in the time with the beat, Of my heart, yeah, Your eyes of fire, Your voice choir of angels, You're so beautiful, That I don't really know where I'm to start") but she is not the kind of person that could see the things the ways he sees them, that she could not observe the beauty of some certain things.
