lyrics

I live in peacetime, I've money enough
The shop I work in sells really nice stuff
I love cooking while listening to songs
Nobody hurts me, nothing goes wrong
I love to eat and walk and think and drink and breathe and talk
I love to dance and sing and paint and draw and everything

When I'm lonely, my friends cheer me up
they make me happy, run over my cup
The only sadness that seems to stay
Is I can't take their sadness away

Oh I could try but I confess
I don't know how to do it best

oh no, oh yes
I want to spread my happiness
oh no, oh yes
I want to spread my happiness

the friends I live with are the best I've ever had
it's not fair that I'm happy when they're sad
I know the records that take my cares away
would just annoy you 'cos I play them every day

Oh how I'd jump and scream and shout
if that could help to share it out, but

oh no, oh yes
I want to spread my happiness
oh no, oh yes
I want to spread my happiness

I don't know what to make you for your tea
I'm still in search for the perfect recipe
I feel so happy, I feel so blessed
But I can't share my happiness

I wish that I could make you feel
The way you always make me feel, but

oh no, oh yes
I want to spread my happiness
oh no, oh yes
I want to spread my happiness
oh no, oh yes
I want to spread my happiness
oh no, oh yes
I want to spread my happiness
