Sometimes I sing, sometimes I hum
people say – I’ve been in the rum.
I like to laugh, I like to grin
people think I was drinking again.
I tell a story or tell a joke
all I had was a nice cold Coke.
The happiness and joy I like to display
is just because I’m made that way.
I don’t need a drink to give happiness a start
all I need lives right in my heart.
