Happy-Go-Lucky Day

            I'm happy-go-lucky;
            The reason's not clear.
            It could be the weather
            Or time of the year.

            It might be the things
            That have happened today
            Like getting to work
            Without a delay.

            Or it could be the things
            That didn't go wrong
            Like getting my Starbucks
            And not waiting for long.

            The reason for this
            Might quite simply be
            That I woke up and prayed
            And God filled me with glee.

            So I pass on the joy
            And some tips for you:
            Give God the glory
            In whatever you do.

            Smile at strangers
            As you walk by
            And don't even care
            If they all wonder why.

            Breath some fresh air,
            Work with delight,
            Laugh at mistakes,
            Sing loudly at night!

            Run up the stairs,
            Skip in the rain.
            Smile in the mirror,
            Try to keep sane.

            You'll be happy-go-lucky.
            The reason won't be clear.
            It could be the weather
            Or time of the year.

            But no matter the reason
            Whatever it be
            Pray to God in the morning
            And He'll fill you with glee!
