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 now

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, 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 
Don't worry, (ha-ha ha-ha ha-ha) 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 
But 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

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry 
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy 
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy 

Ooo-oo-oo-oo-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 Don't worry, be happy 

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, be happy now

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 Don't worry, be happy 

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry 
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy 
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy 

Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, don't worry 
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't do it, be happy 
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Put a smile on your face
Don't bring everybody down like
This
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry 
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo It will soon pass, whatever it
Is
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy 

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo I'm not worried 
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo I'm happy 
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo
