Oh gee, haven’t you waited a long time to hear
something like this? Laurel Fishman just improvised her
feelings on tape and I edited them together with some
old 4-track stuff I had from Sy Vy Studios. Then I
transcribed the pitches of Laurel’s voice and doubled
it on guitar. Sing along, now.
Ya know, Steve, I wish we could just always have fun,
and never, never, ever have to be sad. And just always
smile and laugh, and sing, and play. And just always be
having so, so, so, so, so much fun. And, never cry,
never be sad, never have to frown, never have anybody
mad at us. Just always having fun; always laughing, and
laughing loud, and getting other people to laugh, too.
And have so much fun and never, never, never be sad for
any reason. And if anyone would ever try to make us sad
(or mad), we wouldn't be. Because we would just be too
glad. And then we would make everyone else glad because
our "Gladdys" would be so big, everyone else would have
to be glad, too. And, Steve, I never, ever wanna cry,
and I know you don't either. And I hope that we will
never, never have to cry. And if we just laugh a real
lot, and laugh loud 'n' hard and long, we will never,
ever have to cry. And if anyone tries to make us cry,
we will make them laugh instead; we will make them glad
and we will keep them from feeling bad, and we will
never be sad, 'cause it's so fun to be happy, and I
always wanna be happy with you Steve, and I never want
it to be a cloudy day. I always want the sun to shine.
And even if one day the sun doesn't shine, we'll
pretend the sun is shining. And we'll be so happy, and
we'll just laugh and laugh anyway. And pretty soon, all
the dark clouds will go away. Because we can't have
those dark clouds, no! We will always be happy, and
having fun instead. And if it should ever start to rain
little drops of rain, we will pretend it isn't raining.
We will go inside and pretend there's no rain, and sure
enough, our gladness will make all the rain go away.
("They told me I was gonna get a balloon.")
And, Steve, you and I are so happy; and, and, Steve, we
will just take our happiness with us everywhere. We
could go into bad neighborhoods where very sad and very
bad people live. But we'd make them happy, and they
would be sad or bad anymore. And we would walk the
streets of the worst places in the world, and make
everyone so happy. Why, why, we could go to New York,
and make all the people in New York so happy. Why, we
could even go to Tokyo. Why, Steve, we could go to all
the big cities, all over the world, making people happy
wherever we go. And make 'em laugh and make 'em sing.
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-. Make them sing. So many
little, come on everybody sing along with me now; just
everybody go, do-do do dodo do do, do-do-do; whatever
you feel like singing; just go do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
do do do do, etc...
