I couldn't get it all, Gio, but here's the first 3:16. That ought to help.

Everywhere I go, everywhere I find
too many gentle people with sadness on their minds.
I've traveled far and I've traveled wide.
I've traveled low and I've traveled high --
brings a feeling to me deep inside.
I choose a sad song.
Sing for Happiness - 'cause She will never die.
Won't you pray for [three syllables, can't understand them]
'cause they don't tell no lies.
I hope that Heaven never leaves us alone.
Pray for your brother's soul every night.
Sing for Happiness; everything's gonna be all right.

Hello, Gio. It's been eight days since you asked for the lyrics. I feared you weren't coming back.

I tried, but I can't understand much of the second verse. However, I think if you worked up an introduction, did the first verse, then improvised on it, then repeated it, you would have a workable musical number.

Hi,

I make it something like the below. Don't know if every single word is correct, but if I did made the wrong choice here and there, they'll at least sound similar.


Sing For Happiness - Grin

Everywhere I go, everywhere I find
too many gentle people with sadness on their minds.
I travelled far and I travelled wide.
I travelled high and I travelled low
brings a feeling to me deep inside.
I choose a sad song.

Sing for Happiness - 'cause she will never die.
Won't you play for natural friends
'cause they don't tell no lies.
I hope that Heaven never leaves us alone.
Pray for your brother's soul every night.
Sing for Happiness; everything's gonna be all right.

It's so hard loving everyone
And sometimes the light's so hard to see
You've got the power to save the sad
Hold my hand, stand in front of me
My soul is plain and I just wanna heal
Feel my hands, they're like tenderness
A heart for free, this you all must feel
Watch my eyes they don't possess

Sing for Happiness - 'cause she will never die.
Won't you play for natural friends
'cause they don't tell no lies.
I hope that Heaven never leaves us alone.
Pray for your brother's soul every night.
Won't you sing for Happiness; everything's gonna be all right.


And then some repetitions that don't seem to offer anything new. You can probably figure that part out, if you want to know exactly.

Bye
