Lyrics

I wasted too much precious time
walkin’ around with a worried mind.
If I lose these expectations
everything will work out fine.
I think I’ll call it a holiday
and take whatever comes my way.
Today I’m gonna be happy as I want to be.

I’m gonna dance this dance till I learn the steps.
Sing the words that I don’t know yet.
Play the game like the rules were made for me.
Today I’m gonna be happy as I want to be.

If lettin’ go is a big mistake
that’s the chance I’ll have to take.
To feel a big smile on my face
might be good for goodness sake.
I may win, I may lose
But, if it’s really mine to choose,
well, today I’m gonna be happy as I want to be.

I’m gonna dance this dance till I learn the steps.
Sing the words that I don’t know yet.
Play the game like the rules were made for me.
Today I’m gonna be happy as I want to be.

Why should I sit and cry if it’s up to me…

I’m gonna dance this dance till I learn the steps.
Sing the words that I don’t know yet.
Play the game like the rules were made for me.
Today I’m gonna be happy as I want to be.
