Written by Bobby McFerrin

Here's a little song I wrote.
You might want to sing it note-for-note:
Don't worry! Be happy!
In every life we have some trouble,
But when you worry, you make it double.
Don't worry! Be happy! Don't worry! Be happy!
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo; don't worry!
Woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo; be happy!
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo; don't worry!
Don't worry! Be happy!
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo; don't worry!
Woo-oo-woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo; be happy!
Woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo, don't worry! Be happy!
Ain't got no place to lay your head,
Somebody came and took your bed.
Don't worry! Be happy!
The landlord say your rent is late.
He may have to litigate.
Be happy! Look at me, I'm happy!
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo; don't worry!
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo; be happy! Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo.
Here, I'll give you my phone number.
When you're worried, call me. I'll make you happy.
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo; don't worry!
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo; be happy! Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo.
Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style.
Ain't got no gal to make you smile.
Don't worry! Be happy!
'Cause when you're worried, your face will frown,
And that will bring everybody down.
So don't worry! Be happy! Don't worry! Be happy! Now.

Now there, is this song I wrote.
I hope you learned it note-for-note,
Like good little children. Don't worry! Be happy!
A-listen to a-what I say in your life, expect some trouble
When you worry! You make it double.
Don't worry! Be happy!
