Everyone really knows me
As always being loopy and light
Though sometimes I can be serious
Silly usually wins the fight
It's really just quite recently
Good time Charlie is king
I used to get extremely emotional
At the slightest little thing
Which one would I rather be?
A small wee bit of both
The romantic side is warming
But I like my happy side most
Perhaps it's just a cover up
So my feelings don't get hurt
Joking and making fun of things
As life throws out its dirt
How many people can really say
They're happy in their skin?
I hereby make it known to all
I'm the happiest I've ever been
