When I sing this song y'all
Singin' it for my baby
She's the only one can bring me joy
That's why I sing these happy songs

They go, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Come on now happy song, happy song now

On a cold rainy, windy night
She shut all the doors, she cut off the lights
She holds me and squeezes me tight
She tells me Big O everything's all right

And I go, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Play it again, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Do it again, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Come on now, those happy songs, happy, happy songs
Come on

Bring my breakfast to the table
When I go to work she knows I'm able
Do my job, I come back in
You oughta see my baby's face, she just grins, grins, grins

I go, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Play it again, dum, dum, deedle dee, dum dum
Sing them happy songs, lovely, lovely songs
Sweet soul songs, those good old happy songs

It give you such a feeling, a lovely, lovely feeling
And makes you wanna shout, it backs you, knocks you out
Happy, happy songs, those good old lovely songs
Those sweetened nursery rhyme songs

Those good old lovely songs
Those sweet soul music songs
Those good old, good old songs

CROPPER, STEPHEN LEE / REDDING, OTIS
