  • Lyrics: Happy when I’m down Time is short, I won’t stay long I think of you And I feel stronger Thank you for making it all feel worthwhile We’ll surf the waves And ride them down As we can swim and we know that play is pudding That’s nice because we both have sweet teeth Though it never makes a sound, I’m just happy when I’m down I trust in you Because I trust in me I’ll say goodbye to misery and its twin The one that you don’t believe in And it never makes a sound I’m just happy when I’m down I like blue but I’ll wear brown Because I can I think that it is me that make’s it change Though it never makes a sound I’m just happy when I’m down And it never makes a sound I’m just happy when I’m down Yes I like blue but I’ll wear brown because I can. It’s definitely me that make’s it change So for now I think that’s all I have to say… (Lyrics/Music C.L.Hicken)
