  • Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
    I thank the Lord that I've been blessed
    With more than my share of happiness

    To me this old world is a wonderful place
    I'm just about the luckiest human in the whole human race
    I've got no silver and I've got no gold
    But I've got happiness in my soul

    Happiness to me is an ocean tide
    A sunset fading on a mountain side
    A big old heaven full of stars above
    When I'm in the arms of the one I love

    Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
    I thank the Lord that I've been blessed
    With more than my share of happiness

    Happiness is a field of grain
    Turning its face to the falling rain
    I see it in the sunshine, breathe it in the rain
    Happiness, happiness everywhere

    A wise old man told me one time
    Happiness is a frame of mind
    When you go to measuring my success
    Don't count my money count my happiness

    Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
    I thank the Lord I've been blessed
    With more than my share of happiness

    Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
    I thank the Lord I've been blessed
    With more than my share of happiness
    I got more than my share of happiness Writer/s: Derrick Anderson
