[Talking:]
Was I like this as a baby?
Was I always like this?
Is that why there's something wrong with me?
I was always like this wasn't I?

[Intro: John Mellencamp - "Jack and Diane"]
Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone sayin'
Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone they walk on

[Verse 1:]
If it isn't rappin how easy I get distracted
The gift is packaged in my lab
Drifting is a different practice
For those that are living backwards
To be moving forward
Thinking that is how you get the passion
Problem is you're forced to stick with sadness
In the madness you feel like a? Gladys
Cause it's always night time
I fight my right mind
When I write rhymes
I'm blinded, cats that like shine
I like wine
So I got to be drunk
If I think I can possibly flunk
With all this class how could I be a punk
In school before I was a pot-head, a junkie
I was the company of rockers and junkies
Went to black schools
Cats rob me and jump me
Now they ass want a spot in my company
And females that hated all plottin to hump me
What you want b?

[Chorus:]
So this is what it means to be happy
I said this is what it means to be happy
What does it mean when you're happy? (I dunno)
It just means that you're happy
Cheer up, crack a smile or whatever
Whenever you feel down or whatever
Feel like you did as a child or whatever
And think to yourself wow or whatever

[Verse 2:]
Mama made macaroni surprise
Craft with hot dogs
On the loneliest nights
Holding me tight
Cause she knows that I might
Go nuts, we were broke
But she tried to keep a hold of the lights
As long as she could
As strong as she was
She turned every wrong into good
We dreamt to saying, "so long to the hood"
And I'll write songs for the hood
124th and Broadway
Across the street from Grant
Fall asleep to damn one train going one way
Mad loud train tracks? every Sunday
No funds make happy days transparent
I hope the music makes me a good damn parent
Now I can look at having such things
Next time is the song that better luck brings

[Chorus:]
So this is what it means to be happy
I said this is what it means to be happy
What does it mean when you're happy? (I dunno)
It just means that you're happy
Cheer up, crack a smile or whatever
Whenever you feel down or whatever
Feel like you did as a child or whatever
And think to yourself wow or whatever

[Verse 3:]
I think people know I use to be a pessimist
Which state am I in will never get my thoughts heaven sent
Far fetched like having a black president
But not really if the truth is what he ever meant
I'm the me from the future
I need what you use ta
To get better my world is nor theirs then the set of the fifth element
Can't sing but this is relevant
Look in the mirror
And making the shape of you
Whatever you can make it through
Get it for the sake of you
You know, I mean for real you know
You know, I mean for real you know

[Chorus:]
So this is what it means to be happy
I said this is what it means to be happy
What does it mean when you're happy? (I dunno)
It just means that you're happy
Cheer up, crack a smile or whatever
Whenever you feel down or whatever
Feel like you did as a child or whatever
And think to yourself wow or whatever

[Outro: John Mellencamp - "Jack and Diane"]
Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone sayin'
Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone they walk on
