    and
    DK the title, but the song that goes:

    "If ya wanna be happy for the rest of your life,
    Never make a pretty woman your wife.
    So from my personal point of view
    Get an ugly girl to marry you."



    LOVE that song.

    Thanks, Brusch. I thought that was the title, but I wasn't sure, and I didn't know who sang it.

    Julie, "Break My Stride" by Matthew Wilder always makes me feel good, too!

    Some of my "happy" songs are poignant, some are fully of passion, and a few are just plain wierd. But my favourite, all time favourite - the song that reduces me to a ludicrous puddle of happiness has got to be...
    "IN THE BELLY OF THE WHALE", BY VEGGIE TALES LYRICS!!

    Imagine, if you will, Archibald Asparagus - a monocled asparagus - playing Jonah (y'know, as in "Jonah and the Whale" of the Bible ), stranded in the cavernous belly of said animal, singing this forlorn tale of woe in a voice which no earthly aspargus ought to have!

    Here are the full lyrics, but really - they pale in comparison to the performance...

    Up to my ears
    In bitter tears.
    Can't believe I've sunk this low
    As I walk the plankton
    Inner sanctum.
    Got outta Dodge,
    Sailed on a bon-less
    Bon voyage.
    You said North,
    I headed South.
    Tossed overboard.
    Good Lord, that's a really large mouth...

    I'm sleeping with fishes here,
    In the belly of the whale.
    I'm highly nutritious here,
    In the belly of the whale.
    Bad food, lousy atmosphere.
    I don't wanna bellyache.
    How long is this gonna take?

    Woke up this morning kinda blue,
    Thinking through that age-old question:
    How to exit a whale's digestion?
    It might behoove me to be heaved.
    Head out like a human comet.
    Hmmm... I wonder what rhymes with comet.

    I'm sleeping with fishes here,
    In the belly of the whale.
    I'm highly nutritious here,
    In the belly of the whale.
    I'm ready to reappear.
    I don't wanna bellyache.
    Lord, how long's this gonna take?

    End times, they come rolling around.
    Enzymes, they come breaking us down to the core.
    The good Lord grants we all get a second chance.

    I'm one of the dishes here,
    In the belly of the whale.
    They say I'm delicious here,
    In the belly of the whale.
    Lord, please make him chuck it all.
    It's a gut call
    In the belly of the whale.

    I'm in the belly of the whale.
    In the belly of the whale.
    I'm in the belly.
    In the belly of the whale.
    I'm in the belly of the whale.
    In the belly of the whale.
    I'm in the belly...

    In the belly of the whale
    In an underwater jail
    It's a tight squeeze.
    It's a-gettin' to me,
    But it's roomier
    Than the tail.
    Hey, sailor,
    Got my flow free
    Like a salmon to the sea
    From the L.A. Symphony.
    I'm a paddleboat
    Paddlin' in their wake,
    A fake free-styler,
    But my unemployment pays.
    I'm avoiding cliches
    Like "whale of a tale" say
    Or "you can't keep
    A good man down,"
    'Cause you can
    And I've been there, man.
    But I've been expectorated.
    I'm elated!
    I'm free like Willie!
    Happy Day!
    Oops,
    That's a bit of a cliche.

    In the belly...
