Happy Time

Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
When a melody does find a rhyme
Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
Lord, home to stay
I'm comin' home to stay
Home to stay

Ah, lord, it's just the same old story
Something about love for glory
Nickel and a dime a dozen fame
Ah, it's such a shame
Ah, the way they use your name
Ah, you know it's such a shame

When it's only mine to sing a song
Hoping that you'd cross along my way
Before I have to move along
Ah, now move along
Ah, but I'll be back again
Ooh back again

Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
When a melody does find a rhyme
Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
Oh, Lord, home to stay
I'm comin' home to stay
Home to stay

Sleep late now mama
Let the mornin' sun warm your bed
While I'm away
While I'm away
