Verse:
When you find that your mind keeps you wor -ried and blue,
You can al -ways let your feet Keep your dis -po -si -tion sweet.
Want to see what makes me feel the way I do?
Will you kind -ly cast an eye On two good rea -sons why?
 
Chorus:
Hap -py feet! I've got those hap -py feet.
Give them a low -down beat and they be -gin danc -ing.
I've got those ten lit -tle tap -ping toes, and when they hear a tune,
I can't con -trol my danc -ing heels to save my soul.
Wear -y blues can't get in -to my shoes
Be -cause my shoes re -fuse to ev -er grow wear -y.
I keep cheer -ful on an ear -ful of mu -sic sweet, 'cause
I've got hap -hap -hap -py feet.
