"Happy Day" as written by and David Byrne....
In...my...sensations
I believe that I...was
Born with the things that I know
I want...to talk...
Like ev'ry
Before I decide what to do

And I fell all over and I
Couldn't stand up
I can't be critical
I can't won't stop
Such a happy day
For me
Bring a happy day
To me
Send a happy day
To me
And a happy day
Came to me come to me here it come...

I'm...only...looking
Feel like my heart
Has a will of it's own
I feel...feel nice inside
Right here
And now it's...summer again

The story that I told
The story I made up
I was foolin' around but I
Can't won't stop
Such a happy day
For me
Bring a happy day
To me
Send a happy day
To me
And a happy day
Come to me, come to me, here it come...

This...boy...is in motion
Some density
Moved right beside me
I want
My sentence
Right here
But now I'm far away

A sign was given but
Many years have passed
Cost a little bit to love you but I
Won't can't stop
Such a happy day
For me
Bring a happy day
To me
Send a happy day
To me
And a happy day
Came to me come to me here it come...

It's alright

    General CommentI think this may be one of David Byrne's few love songs that are actually about him falling in love, rather than him just pondering or criticizing love.

    General CommentThis song is simply about what it's like to be very happy, to have a happy summer day.
