Doris Day - I Want To Be Happy Lyrics




[NANETTE:]
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy too.
Life's really worth living
When you are mirth giving
Why can't I give some to you?
When skies are gray
And you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through
I wanna be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy too.
I want to be happy...worth living
When we are mirth giving
Why can't I give some to you?
When skies...blue
I'll send that sun smilin' through.
I want to be happy...happy too.
I won't be happy
(She won't be happy)
I won't be happy
Till the day you're happy too.

When skies are gray
And you say you are blue

[JIMMY:]
I'll send the sun smiling through

[NANETTE:]
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Till I make you happy too.

[JIMMY:]
When skies are gray
And you say you are blue

[NANETTE:]
What're you gonna do?

[JIMMY:]
I'll send the sun smiling through

[BOTH:]
I want to be happy
But I won't be happy

[NANETTE:]
Till I make you happy too.

[JIMMY:]
I can make you happy too.

    But I won't be happy
    Till I make you happy too.
    Life's really worth living

    I wanna be happy
    But I won't be happy
    Till I make you happy too.
    I want to be happy...worth living
    When we are mirth giving

    When skies...blue
    I'll send that sun smilin' through.
    I want to be happy...happy too.

    @quackfctry Oh ... what a wonderful memory ! I started listening to my Mom's Doris records when I was about 10 years old. So I tell her its all her fault that I'm such a dayniac !! Thank you for your wonderful comment !!

  40. quackfctry

    my childhood (in 80s, czech republic) was full of doris day and her songs - my father had an old LP with her songs, everything on the cover was written in russian, i didnt understand a word - written or sung, but I loved it and when I knew some english I spent hours singing all her songs :-)

  41. Dayniac4324

    @TheHaloSparten5 Me too .... right there with you .... love this music ! So happy you enjoyed !!!

  42. Dayniac4324

    @SGR1000 I've loved her since I was 10 !!

  43. Dayniac4324

    @KCIDER1 When Doris was a teenager she was in a train car accident and spent over a year in a cast. Not knowing is she would walk again, she ended her hopes of becoming a dancer and started singing. She listened to Ella Fitzgerald ... she loved her voice. So .. maybe a bit of it rubbed off .. because Doris certainly became an amazing singer !!

  44. KCIDER1

    as beautiful a voice as ella fitzgerald

  45. Larry Salgado

    Hi Toni, Another video of you this week. You are very busy making them I think. I prefer this version of I Want To Be Happy above the one Doris sang on her album from Tea For Two. This song sounds so relaxed, I love it.

    Ah Toni! Another beautiful Doris Day song I hadn't heard yet. And I love that photo of her and Marty. (Just the hopeless romantic in me that believes the love they shared was true...) Love the end photo. Wonderful! Thank you for sharing from your Doris library.
