  • Lyrics: Twas a day when she was happy, she lifted her head to the sky One wish was made to the goddess she prayed For love with a gentle young guy She found her way to the foothills and walked in a field of flowers and followed the bees and listened to trees And sang with the river for hours Twas a day when she was happy Twas a day when she was happy, the air carried harmony sweet She searched for the sound, A sweet young man she found Who was lovestruck when their eyes did meet They made glorious music together frolicked and danced in the sun and then Cupid’s dart pierced her right in the heart she realized that he was the one Twas a day when she was happy Twas a day when she was happy, he fashioned two rings from a vine And on bended knee he asked her to be His sweet loving friend for all time In a sacred space deep in the forest Face to face, eyes filled with mist “I swear to love you and to always be true” Their promise was sealed as they kissed Twas a day when she was happy Their blessings were many and sadnesses few Life can surprise and bring goodness to you As long as the sun rises Gently each morn It gives one less reason to be forlorn Twas a day when she was happy, singing of peace o’er the land Her voice mesmerized, they both closed their eyes And stood joined as one hand in hand Their song cast a magical spell Each human soul filled with love And by her sweet words they became mockingbird And sang in the air high above Twas a day when she was happy Twas a day when she was happy, inseparable all through their lives Her lover and friend who was true to the end Gave no warning of sudden demise She summoned the goddess for one more request And thanked her for life and love’s gleam With the last breath he drew She asked “May I go too?” Then they floated away in a dream Twas a day when she was happy
