What’s It Take To Be Happy? Lyrics – The Blue Stones

Woke up in a Cadillac
And the candy blue paint nearly gave me a heart attack
No I never signed up to be rich and famous
But if it goes my way I’ll make it quick and painless
That’s what the aim is

I got sick at your momma’s house
And I know she’s upset, couldn’t hear what she’s on about
No I never signed up to be Mr. Shameless
And up until this point I kept the record stainless

Oh what’s it take to be happy?
‘Cause I’ll just quit and do that
Yeah what’s it take to be happy?
‘Cause I know I won’t come back

And I don’t get Billie
Yeah I tried so hard but the voice sounds silly
So I decided that I don’t give a fuck about hype
I’m just old, and she’s not my type
Guess that’s alright

And I’m feeling damn good in my denim
Happy hour, I’m buzzing, I’m a weapon
Been a long few years, we’ve been stressing
And all I think about is how
I can’t wait to get out this place
Make a move, make a dollar, leave a trace
I know a girl down in Arizona State
That can make it all worth the wait

Oh what’s it take to be happy?
‘Cause I’ll just quit and do that
Yeah what’s it take to be happy?
‘Cause I know I won’t come back

You’re takin’ it too personal, just laugh and let it be
Quit trying to hold the world atop your shoulders, let them breathe
It’s what I see

Oh what’s it take to be happy?
‘Cause I’ll just quit and do that
Yeah what’s it take to be happy?
‘Cause I know I won’t come back

Woke up in a Cadillac
So I went back to bed, and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that
