Got Happiness In My Genes

Written by: Jack Ellison

Don't know who I inherited them from Got happiness in my genes Not complaining, it's the way to fly Happy as I've ever been Try very hard with most poems I write To share these feelings of joy Some may think, “he can't be that happy He's being a little bit coy” Sure can't remember ever lying before Perhaps back in nineteen-thirty-nine Cajoling my mom into staying up late But she was quite used to my line As a kid, ya just gotta keep on trying To see what treasures you can gain My own kids kept trying over and over I was on to their little games To get back to happiness in my genes More apparent than ever before Don't know who I inherited them from But happy that's for dang sure! © Jack Ellison 2013
