Happy - Pharrell Williams




Experience: I don't need sunshine. I don't need a roof. Nothing can bring me down. Because I'm happy...

Music Video: 24 hours of happiness would be a drag if you had to watch it all, but not if you had to live it. Pharrell Williams has person after person dance to the song as he films a day of happiness. The only pity is, happiness is easier to stage than it is to truly find.

Meaning of Happy: You start off thinking that Happy is about your dream girl, and that's where the songs plays in Despicable Me 2. But when you take a closer look at the lyrics and watch a few minutes - or even hours - of Pharrell Williams' eternal music video, you realize that he's after something much more basic, and much deeper. Everyone wants to be happy. That's what life is really about. How do you get it? How do you know when you've got it? And finally, how do you hold on? In Despicable Me 2, Gru doesn't stay on his high for very long. And even Pharrell Williams could only give us 24 hours worth.

Ask Yourself: What do you do to make others happy?


LYRICS:

It might seem crazy what I'm about to say
Sunshine she's here, you can take a break
I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don't care baby by the way


Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do


Here come bad news talking this and that
Yeah, give me all you got, don't hold back
Yeah, well I should probably warn you I'll be just fine
Yeah, no offense to you don't waste your time
Here's why


Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do


Happy, bring me down
Can't nothing, bring me down
Love is too happy to bring me down
Can't nothing, bring me down
I said bring me down
Can't nothing, bring me down
Love is too happy to bring me down
Can't nothing, bring me down
I said


Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do


Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do


Happy, bring me down
Can't nothing, bring me down
Love is too happy to bring me down
Can't nothing, bring me down
I said


Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do


Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do
