Verse:
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?
 
Chorus:
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.
