NOTE: THIS TRACK IS FREE

There is this occasional online song contest called,, 'Song Fu',
(check out www.quickstopentertainment.com/category/masters-of-song-fu/ for more details).

This is the first song I entered for Song Fu 3.

Basically you are given a topic, then a week to write a song on that topic.
The topic for this challenge was simply, "Write a happy song".

Virtually ALL instruments on this are by the amazing Borba Spinotti.
I'm sure you'll agree his work is amazing

lyrics

Turn on your smile, show your laughter as a light
Cos you know the mood within really makes you feel like
Shining out a beacon to the broken, calls them all into your sight
And you can do what makes you feel happy

Take time to turn to the things that terminate
All the thoughts of negativity that leave you in a state
Of overwhelming deep depression, turn your back and walk away
And you can do what makes you feel happy

(And You can) do it if you’re rich
And you can do it if you’re poor
Do it time and time again until you’re feeling sore
And even though you do it constantly
You wanna do it more
When you do what makes you feel happy

(And You can) do it at the aerodrome
Or up against a door
Do it at the Megamall or on your parent’s floor
And even though you do it constantly
You wanna do it more
When you do what makes you feel happy

(so when the)
Urges within you start messing with your brain
And you know if you don’t do it then you might just go insane
Take the risk and damn the consequence there’s no need to explain
Why you’re doing what makes you feel happy

(and you can)
Do it at the Mickey Dee’s
Or do it in the park
Depending who you do it with,
It’s better after dark
And if you do it on some wet cement
You’re bound to leave your mark
While you’re doing what makes you feel happy.

(and you can)
Do it in the underpass
Or in the rising tide
If it’s not the first of may
Then you don’t need to go outside
But if you want, and if you can,
And if you do, you can’t deny
That you are doing what makes you feel happy
(That. You. Are.) doing what makes you feel happy
(That. You. Are.) doing what makes you feel happy




.... now then....
Those *fade out words*…

(NOTE, this is EXACTLY what is recorded, nothing is left out or edited!)

Do it in a bed and you can do it in a bath
Do it for the love of it or do it for a laugh
You can do it in a train or you can do in the trees
Do it when a mile high or down upon your knees
Do it with the TV on or do it on the grass
If you’re feeling real adventurous then do it in the.
