Happy

From The Elvis Costello Wiki

Well, I never kept a dollar past sunset
It always burned a hole in my pants
Never made a school mama happy
Never blew a second chance, oh no!

I need a love to keep me happy
I need a love to keep me happy
Baby, baby keep me happy
Baby, baby keep me happy

Always took candy from strangers
Didn't wanna get me no trade
Never want to be like papa
Working for the boss ev'ry night and day

I need a love to keep me happy
I need a love to keep me happy
Baby, baby keep me happy
Baby, baby keep me happy

Never got a flash out of cocktails
When I get some flesh off the bone
Never got a lift out of lear jets
When I can fly way back home

Happy, baby won't you keep me...
Happy, baby won't you keep me...
Happy...
