If You're Happy

by Super Simple Songs


If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands.
If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands.
If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands, clap your hands.
If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands.

If you're angry, angry, angry, stomp your feet.
If you're angry, angry, angry, stomp your feet.
If you're angry, angry, angry, stomp your feet, stomp your feet.
If you're angry, angry, angry, stomp your feet.

If you're scared, scared, scared, say, "Oh no!"
If you're scared, scared, scared, say, "Oh no!"
If you're scared, scared, scared, say, "Oh no!" Say, "Oh no!"
If you're scared, scared, scared, say, "Oh no!"

If you're sleepy, sleepy, sleepy, take a nap.
If you're sleepy, sleepy, sleepy, take a nap.
If you're sleepy, sleepy, sleepy, take a nap, take a nap.
If you're sleepy, sleepy, sleepy, take a nap.

If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands.
If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands.
If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands, clap your hands.
If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands.
