The turtle moves slowly and is happy with his pace of life
The flamingo walks with elegant grace, she knows she's one of a kind

If you can't stop, at least smile as you go by
If you can't stop, at least smile as you go by
Sometimes, you just gotta know how to feel

The happy crab danced on the beach to a calypso beat
The happy mullet jumps for the pure joy of being alive

If you can't stop, at least smile as you go by
If you can't stop, at least smile as you go by
Sometimes, you just gotta know how to feel

The gator grinned as he dreamed of his next meal
Every good fisherman has a pelican watching over him

If you can't stop, at least smile as you go by
If you can't stop, at least smile as you go by
Sometimes, you just gotta know how to feel
