Happy House

 

Lyrics

This is a happy house

This is a happening house


There’s a workshop in the basement

And it’s working for us all

And the bar is always open

To those who slip and fall

If Audrey Hepburn comes for breakfast

Then Amy Winehouse stays all night

While Jimi Hendrix watches over us

As we put the world to rights


This is a happy house

This is a happening house

All the walls scream ecstasy

It oozes creativity

It’s banished negativity

Everyone is happy here

And you’re all welcome here


Everything’s been broken

Including countless hearts

But it’s the glue we’ve got to fix it

That sets us all apart

Everything we own

Has been crafted with great care

And if you need a helping hand

You will always find us there 


This is a happy house

This is a happening house

A bedrock in reality

An escape from life’s insanity

A living personality

Everyone is happy here

And you’re all welcome here


And though we haven’t got a pot to piss in

We’ve got all that we need

It’s positive energy, dreams and schemes

On which we feast and feed

When the lost souls are all gathering

You’ll find them in our dust

Amid the scars we proudly wear

Our best years in front of us


This is a happy house

This is a happening house

And though the paint is peeling

Beneath a creaking ceiling

It’s mixed with love and feeling

And everyone is happy here

And you’re all welcome here


This is a happy house

This is a happening house

If you treat it with humility

It will grant some small stability

It will nurture each ability

And everyone is happy here

And you’re all welcome here
