The Happiest Girl in the Whole U.S.A.
Shine on me sunshine Walk with me world It's a skippidity do da day I'm the happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A. Good morning morning Hello sunshine Wake up sleepy head Why'd we move that bojangle clock so far away from the bed Just one more minute That's why we moved it One more hug would do Do you love waking up next to me As much as I love waking up next to you You make the coffee I'll make the bed I'll fix your lunch And you fix mine Now tell me the truth Do these old shoes look funny Honey it's almost nine Now you be careful Gotta go, I love you Have a beautiful day, And kiss the happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A. Skippidity do da Thank you oh Lord for making him for me And thank you for letting life turn out the way That I always thought it could be There once was a time when I could not imagine How it would feel to say I'm happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A Now shine on me sunshine Walk with me world It's a skippidity do da day I'm the happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A. Shine on me sunshine Walk with me world It's a skippidity do da day I'm the happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A. Shine on me sunshine Walk with me world It's a skippidity do da day I'm the happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A.
