Happy days are here again!
The skies above are clear again,
Let us sing a song of cheer again,
Happy days are here again!

Altogether shout it now,
There's no one who can doubt it now,
Let us tell the world about it now,
Happy days are here again!

Your cares and troubles are gone
There'll be no more from now on!

Happy days are here again!
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again!

So long sad times, go long bad times,
We are rid of you at last;
Howdy gay times, cloudy gray times
You are now a thing of the past.

Happy days are here again!
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again!

Happy days are here again!
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again!
