Lyrics:

And I know, and I know,
And I know that ev'rybody,
And I know that ev'rybody be happy,
As happy as you and me.
'Cause I know, I know.

Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say
Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say, and

Ev'rybody's gonna be happy,
Which means you and me, my love
Ev'rybody's gonna be happy,
Which means you and me, my love

And I know, and I know,
And when I see ya walking down the street
Well it makes me happy to see you walkin'
It makes my life complete
'Cause I know, I know.

Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say
Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say, and

Ev'rybody's gonna be happy,
Which means you and me, my love
Ev'rybody's gonna be happy,
Which means you and me, my love

And I know, and I know,
And I know that you and me,
And I know that you and me be happy,
As happy as we can be.
'Cause I know, I know.

Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say
Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say, and

Ev'rybody's gonna be happy,
Which means you and me, my love
Ev'rybody's gonna be happy,
Which means you and me, my love

Ev'rybody's gonna be happy,
Which means you and me, my love
Ev'rybody's gonna be happy,
Which means you and me, my love

And I know, and I know,
And I know, and I know,
And I know...
