“Don’t Worry, Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin

Bobby McFerrin is a man that reminded the world through song that everybody has problems and that worrying can make it worse. His hit song became the first a capella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a position it held for two weeks. All of the sounds that you hear in the song, even the drums and the sounds besides the lyrics, were recorded with Bobby McFerrin’s voice. The song has been widely commercialized and gives all of us an important message, “Don’t worry, be happy.”

Here is a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy……Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
The land lord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy
Look at me I am happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Here I give you my phone number
When you worry call me
I make you happy
