The Muppets – “Life’s A Happy Song” Lyrics

Okay, I’m not even going to pretend this is Disney tour related. However, after listening to this song on repeat for a good 24 hours, I felt compelled to share with the world my take on the lyrics. I’ve only found one other listing of the lyrics online, and it was incomplete.

So, for my fellow lyric-obsessives out there, here you go (corrections welcome):
 

The Muppets – “Life’s a Happy Song” Lyrics

Written by the always awesome Bret McKenzie (to whom I extend my utmost apologies for any mistakes)


Everything is great
Everything is grand
I got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
 

Everything is perfect
It’s falling into place
I can’t seem to wipe this smile off my face
 

Life’s a happy song, when there’s someone by my side to sing along
 

When you’re alone, life can be a little low
It makes you feel like you’re 3 foot tall
When it’s just you – well, times can be tough
When there’s no one there to catch your fall
 

Everything is great
Everything is grand
I got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
 

Everything is perfect
It’s falling into place
I can’t seem to wipe this smile off my face
 

Life smells like a rose
With someone to paint
And someone to pose
 

Life’s like a piece of cake
With someone to pedal
And someone to break
 

Life is full of glee
With someone to saw
And someone to see
 

Life’s a happy song, when there’s someone by my side to sing along
 

I’ve got everything that I need – right in front of me
Nothing’s stopping me
Nothing that I can’t be
With you right here next to me
 

Life’s a piece of cake
With someone to give
And someone to take
 

Life’s a piece of pie
With someone to wash
And someone to dry
 

Life’s an easy road
With someone beside you to share the load
 

Life is full of highs
With someone to stir
And someone to fry
 

Life’s a leg of lamb
With someone there to lend a hand
 

Life’s a bunch of flowers
With someone to while away the hours
 

Life’s a filet of fish, eh!
….yes, it is
 

Life’s a happy song, when there’s someone by your side to sing along
 

I’ve got everything that I need – right in front of me
Nothing’s stopping me
Nothing that I can’t be
With you right here next to me
 

I’ve got everything that I need
…right in front of me
 

[Talking]

Sorry, super excited.
 

Oh, this is the most romantic thing ever,
I’ve always dreamt of seeing Los Angeles.
 

I know, Walter can’t wait either.
You don’t mind that he’s coming, right?
 

Oh, no. No, of course not.
As long as we can spend our anniversary dinner together,
That’s all I ask.
 

Ok, let me check on Walter.
 


Everything is great
Everything is grand
Except Gary’s always off with his friend
 

It’s never me and him
It’s always me and him and him
I wonder when it’s going to end?
 

But I guess that’s ok
‘cause maybe someday
I know just how it’s going to be
You’ll ride up on a steed
And get down on one knee
And say, “Mary, will you marry meeeeee…
…please?”
 

I’ve got everything that I need – right in front of me
Nothing’s stopping me
Nothing that I can’t be
With you right here next to me
 

You’ve got everything that you need – right in front of you
Nothing’s stopping you
Nothing that you can’t do you
That the world can throw at you
 

Life’s a happy song
When there’s someone by your side to sing
 

Life’s a happy song
When there’s someone by your side to sing
 

Life’s a happy song
When there’s someone by your side to sing along

 
PS – Amazon has the entire The Muppets Original Soundtrack for only $4.99. Best $5 I’ve ever spent.
