After everyone has a smokey cookout at Chip’s house,
And the grown-ups make music on their guitars for singing and dancing,
And the children take off their shoes and run around the backyard catching lightening bugs in the dark —
Then, it is a very good time to be Happy.
And that ‘then’ is a very good time and
A very good feeling to remember
