  • I sat round all day
    I used to get stoned
    I liked to get wasted
    But these days I don't
    'Cause I'm happy with you
    I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah

    I walked around angry
    I used to feel bad
    But nowadays my days
    Don't have to be sad
    'Cause I'm happy, with you
    I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah

    Like, hear the high clear robin sing
    Walk a bluebell carpet
    Watch the children playing games
    Catch a moon and then drop it
    Hear the gentle mantle roll
    On a frosty morning
    See the mighty ocean break
    Like a sailor's warning

    I used to drink too much
    Forgot to come home
    I lied to my doctor
    But these days I don't
    'Cause I'm happy with you
    I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah

    Throw a pocketful of coins in the Trevi fountain
    See an ice cold running stream
    Rushing down the mountain
    Hear a new born baby lamb
    Calling for its mother
    Watching reunited friends
    Loving one another

    I sat round all day
    I liked to get stoned
    I used to get wasted
    But these days I don't
    'Cause I'm happy with you
    I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah

    Happy with you
    I'm happy with you
