Connie Francis

Connie Francis (born Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero, December 12, 1938) is an American pop singer of Italian heritage and the top-charting female vocalist of the 1950s and 1960s. Although her chart success waned in the second half of the 1960s, Francis remained a top concert draw. Despite several severe interruptions in her career, Francis is still active as a recording and performing artist (as of November 2011). more »

Oh why should any heart be filled with sadness?
We should be gay!
Oh my, the world should be all filled with gladness
In every way!
A song can make most anybody happy,
So let us sing;
My song is full of life and good and snappy,
It's got the swing!

Join the chorus,
Now's the time to start,
Sing the chorus
With a happy heart.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
Do your little part,
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la!

Oh how can anybody keep from dancing
When songs they play?
And how can anybody keep from prancing,
We should be gay!
I claim the way to loosen up your feelings
Is sing and shout!
I'm thrilled all melodies are so appealing,
I dance about!

Join the chorus,
Now's the time to start,
Sing the chorus
With a happy heart.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
With a happy heart,
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la!
