The song is "Happytown (All Right with Me)", written by Dave Carter, and recorded by Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer on "Tanglewood Tree," Signature CD 1257, 2000.

I found a longish quote embedded in a review at

..."Guru child on glory mountain, waitin' patient, turtle-wise
Twenty years of bliss and countin', trips and riddles in his eyes
He says the primal quest ain't nothin' but a second guess
Sometimes you just do your best and compromise....

Shootin' fools and starry gazers, wizard hip and button-down
I walk the Occam razor way through priests and circus clowns
Am I a missioner of faith or grace or vision or
Another grinning prisoner of Happytown....

So strap me in, I'm going clear - burning circles around the sun
The fisher king is here, but he is not the only one
Percival and Valentino ridin' winged palominos
Willie in his El Camino, on the run...."

Just heard a song on the radio the other day and have been trying to find the lyrics - I think it's called "Happytown" and it may be off an album titled "Tanglewood Tree" by Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. All I know is the chorus goes "but it's all right, it's all right with me.... if it's all right with you". Great tune - can't get it out of my head!! Help??
