  • You're a very pretty girl
    And all that's good
    A lot of guys would love you
    If they could
    When you add up all the hugs
    And every little kiss
    Get down to the bottom line
    And try to answer this

    I wanna know are you happy
    Tell me, tell me
    Do you know how it feels
    To have someone to
    Love you for real

    Oh, you're a hip young man
    Trying to make it in the world
    Messing up the minds of
    A lot of little girls

    Brother, you got
    To face one fact
    The heartache you give out
    You're gonna get it all back

    So are you happy
    Tell me, tell me
    Do you know how it feels
    Oh, are you really happy, for real

    This is one thing
    You gotta learn
    You never get love until
    You give it in return

    Are you happy
    Hey, tell me, tell me, baby
    Do you know how it feels
    I wanna know do you have
    Somebody to love you for real

    Hey, did you hear what I say
    Are you really happy
    Tell me, tell me, tell me
    Do you know how it feels...
