"Happy In The Meantime" as written by Kevin R Baldes, Jeremy A Popoff, Alan Jay Popoff, Allen A Shellenberger and Danny Walker....
It's just another reason why
It all comes down to you and I
Well, have another drink
Waste some time with me
We're happy in the meantime

I've gotta make up for losing time
'Cause I've been spinnin' my wheels all night
And I can't wait, can't hardly wait to see you
Things seem better off now
I think I'm better off now

It's just another reason why
It all comes down to you and I
Well, have another drink
Waste some time with me
We're happy in the meantime

I guess the rain's gonna follow me
'Cause it's been dropping in Minor D
And I can't wait, can't hardly wait to see if
Things are better off now
I think I'm better off now

It's just another reason why
It all comes down to you and I
Well, have another drink
Waste some time with me
We're happy in the meantime
Happy in the meantime

Let's save a little rain
And wash away the pain
I'll try and keep it clean
I'll show you what I mean
I don't want to keep you holdin' on
'Cause in the morning, I'll be gone
So long

Let's have another drink
Waste some time with me
We're happy in the meantime

It's just another reason why
It all comes down to you and I
Let's have another drink
Waste some time with me
We're happy in the meantime
We're happy in the meantime
Happy in the meantime

    General CommentI think this song is sweet, in an alcoholic and depressing kind of way?

    General CommentThis is perfect for all those freshman college students who have to face the inevitable--leaving their sweethearts...Reminds them to be happy in the meantime, because if its truly meant to be, then it will happen...:)

    General Commentd'ah...i hear ya. and the lyric about the rain is 'dropping in minor d' -- anyone know what a minor d chord sounds like? couple friends of mine were wondering if it was a sad-sounding chord...of course, we have no clue what we're talking about...

    General CommentGreat song... I think its like what slowildkat said and its just about someone tellin their sweetie to just be happy while they're together and dont think about whats gonna happen when they have to be apart.

    General Commentfor those of u who wonder, minor d is D F and A. it is bright, but kinda sad. Very fitting to the song, it almost sounds like the song might be in minor d, but i cannot be sure

    General CommentThis is a great song, i heard it off Mr. Deeds the movie in the end credits (not that i often sit around watching credits) but yeh... I think slowildkat has nailed the meaning!
