8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in the key of Eb.
When you find that your mind keeps you worried and blue,
You can always let your feet, Keep your disposition sweet.
Want to see what makes me feel the way I do?
Will you kindly cast an eye, On two good reasons why?
Happy feet! I've got those happy feet.
Give them a lowdown beat and they begin dancing.
I've got those ten little tapping toes, and when they hear a tune,
I can't control my dancing heels to save my soul.
Weary blues can't get into my shoes,
Because my shoes refuse to ever grow weary.
I keep cheerful on an earful of music sweet,
'Cause I've got hap-hap-happy feet.
