Happy Girl Lyrics

by Martina McBride

I used to live in a darkened room
Had a face of stone and a heart of gloom
Lost my hope, I was so far gone
Cryin' all my tears with the curtains drawn

I didn't know until my soul broke free
I've got these angels watching over me, yeah

Oh watch me go, I'm a happy girl
Everybody knows
That the sweetest thing that you'll ever see
In the whole wide world is a happy girl

I used to hide in a party crowd
Bottled up inside, feeling so left out
Standing in a corner wearing concrete shoes
With my frozen smile and my lighted fuse

Now every time I start to feel like that
I roll out my heart, I like a welcome mat

Oh, watch me go, I'm a happy girl
Everybody knows
That the sweetest thing that you'll ever see
In the whole wide world is a happy girl

Laugh when I feel like it, cry when I feel like it
That's just how my life is that's how it goes

Oh, watch me go, I'm a happy girl
And I've come to know
That the world won't change just 'cause I complain
Let the axis twirl, I'm a happy girl

Oh watch me go, I'm a happy girl
Everybody knows
That the sweetest thing that you'll ever see
In the whole wide world is a happy girl

Oh yeah, oh yeah
I'm a happy girl
