Happy people don't cheat
Happy people don't lie
They don't judge, or hold a grudge, don't criticize
Happy people don't hate
Happy people don't steal
Cause all the hurt sure ain't worth all the guilt they feel

If you wanna know the secret
Can't buy it, gotta make it
You ain't ever gonna be it
By takin' someone else's away
Never take it for granted
You don't have to understand it
Here's to whatever what puts a smile on your face
Whatever makes you happy, people

Happy people don't fail
Happy people just learn
Don't think they're above the push and shove
Just wait their turn
They always got a hand, or a dollar to spare
Know the golden rule or what you're goin' through
Even if they never been there

If you wanna know the secret
Can't buy it, gotta make it
You ain't ever gonna be it
By takin' someone else's away
Never take it for granted
You don't have to understand it
Here's to whatever what puts a smile on your face
Whatever makes you happy, people

These days ain't always easy to find
They're the ones that you want standing by your side
No time for greed, if they need some, give 'em a slice
And we'll all be happy people

Well, life is short
And love is rare
And we all deserve to be happy while we're here

Song facts

"We need to hear 'Happy People' right now because it talks about if you are miserable you can change it by doing things that make you happy. I think these songs are going to stretch through generations and even bring generations together. We ended up with a group of stellarly written Nashville country songs." - Kimberly Schlapman
