People have misunderstandings
Of what life is all about
They put values in the wrong things
And in happiness they lose out

Cause being happy is a feeling
It’s just all a frame of mind
And every moment you feel sad and blue
You could be having a real good time

Chorus:
Why don’t you jump for joy and be happy
Why don’t you jump for joy and be glad
If you just try it, you’ll feel better
And have the best time you ever had

Why don’t you jump for joy and be happy
Why don’t you jump for joy and be glad
If you just try it, I’m sure you’ll like it

And have the best time you ever had

Do it, do it, do it.

There is no sense in worrying
Cause that won’t solve a thing
Chances are whatever’s worrying you
Is not as bad as it seems

Being down won’t last forever
Cause nothing really stays the same
You will have a bright tomorrow
There’s always sunshine after rain

Chorus:
Why don’t you jump for joy and be happy
Why don’t you jump for joy and be glad
If you just try it, I know you’ll like it

And have the best time you ever had

Why don’t you jump for joy and be happy
Why don’t you jump for joy and be glad
If you just try it, I know you’ll like it

And have the best time you ever had

Come on, come on …
