    Rockin' all week with you

    This day is ours
    Won't you be mine? (Oh Happy Days)
    This day is ours
    Oh, please be mine (oh Happy Days)

    Hello sunshine, goodbye rain
    She's wearin' my school ring on a chain
    She's my steady, I'm her man
    I'm gonna love her all I can

    This day is ours
    Won't you be mine? (Oh Happy Days)
    This day is ours
    Oh, please be mine (oh Happy Days)

    Gonna cruise her 'round the town
    Show everybody what I've found
    Rock 'n' roll with all my friends
    Hopin' the music never ends

    This day is ours
    Won't you be mine? (Oh Happy Days)

    Oh, please be mine (oh Happy Days)

    Won't you be mine? (Oh Happy Days)
    This day is ours
    Oh, please be mine (oh Happy Days)

    Goodbye grey sky, hello blue
    'Cause nothing can hold me when I hold you
    It feels so right, can't be wrong
    Rockin' and rollin' all week long

    This day is ours
    Won't you be mine? (Oh Happy Days)
    This day is ours
    Oh, please be mine (oh Happy Days)

    Hello sunshine, goodbye rain
    She's wearin' my school ring on a chain

    (See below post for chart info).
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyIt was the 'Love and Happy Days' episode on the TV series 'Love, American Style' that preceded both 'American Graffiti' (premiered on August 1st, 1973) and the TV series 'Happy Days' (debut January 15th, 1974)...

    Only Henry Winkler (Fonzie), Marion Ross (Mrs. Cunningham), and Tom Bosley (Mr. Cunningham) appeared all 255 episodes.
  • Mark from London, EnglandLike the film which spawned it - American Graffitti - Happy Days is more about when the 50s became the 60s, so Rock Around The Clock is a bit of an anachronism. Remember Harrison Ford's character's quote in the film: "Rock and roll died when Buddy Holly died"...
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkThey should have kept the Bill Haley song. It worked better for the show. It wasn't long after the show changed the opening song that we'd sing the lyrics "Sunday, Monday, change the station" . . . and that's when you had to walk up to the TV and turn a dial.
