Happy Talk

This song is by Rodgers and Hammerstein and appears on the album South Pacific (1949).

Happy talk, keep talking happy talk
Talk about things you like to do
You got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream
How you gonna have a dream come true?

Talk about the moon, floating in de sky
Looking like a lily on a lake
Talk about a bird, learning how to fly
Making all the music he can make

Happy talk, keep talking happy talk
Talk about things you like to do
You got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream
How you gonna have a dream come true?

Talk about the star, looking like a toy
Peeking through de branches of a tree
Talk about de girl, talk about da boy,
Counting all de ripples on da sea

Happy talk, keep talking happy talk
Talk about things you like to do
You got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream
How you gonna have a dream come true?

Talk about a boy, saying to de girl:
"Golly, baby, I'm a lucky cuss"
Talk about de girl, saying to da boy:
"You an' me is lucky to be us!"

Happy talk, keep talking happy talk
Talk about things you like to do
You got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream
How you gonna have a dream come true?

If you don't talk happy
And you never dream
Then you'll never have a dream come true
