Well, Zippity Do Da Day!
It's an absolutely beautiful day
The sun is shining ever so brightly
What more is there to say?
It's just like winning the lotto
Feeling great about my health
What more could I really ask for
Don't need a bunch of wealth
This may seem a bit over the top
These phrases dripping with honey
But hey that's how I'm feeling right now
Can't change that for paper money
I really wish I could transfer some
Maybe scrape off a layer or two
Gladly share it with my P-Soup friends
'Cause you guys are all true blue
You support me when I'm feeling down
Though that doesn't happen often
You send me bouquets tied up in rhyme
Surely couldn't help but soften
Why am I blessed with this happy stuff
While others are feeling despair?
It really doesn't seem quite right to me
It really doesn't seem very fair
Don't know where it all originates
So I'll sing Zippity Do Da Day!
Enjoy this gift that's been given to me
On this absolutely beautiful day!
