Get Happy

Get Happy
 (music: Harold Arlen words:Ted Koehler - 1930)

Pack up your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

The sun is shinin', c'mon get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
We're goin' to the Promised Land

 We're headin' 'cross the river
 Gonna wash our sins in the tide
 It's all so peaceful
 On the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

The sun is shinin', c'mon get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
We're goin' to the Promised Land

 We're headin' 'cross the river
 Wash our sins away in the tide
 It's all so peaceful
 On the other side

We're headin' 'cross the river
 Wash our sins away in the tide
 It's all so peaceful
 On the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase your cares away!!
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day
