From "South Pacific" - music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II Copyright 1997

 

happy
oh keep talking happy talk
talking about the things you like to do

you gotta have a dream
cause if you don't have a dream
how you gonna have a dream come true

talk about the moon
floating in the sky
looking like a lilly on a lake 

talk about a bird 
learning how to fly
making all the music he can make

happy
oh keep talking happy talk
talking about the things you like to do

talk about a star
looking like a toy
peeking through the branches of a tree

talk about a girl 
talk about a boy
counting all the ripples on the sea

happy
oh keep talking happy talk
talking about the things you like to do

talk about a boy
saying to the girl
gully baby i'm a lucky cuz

talk about a girl   
saying to that boy 
you and me are as lucky to be us

happy
oh keep talking happy talk
talking about the things you like to do

happy
keep talking happy talk
