Joy lives in the brightest places
where the unicorns and rainbows hide,
sometimes she bursts out singing wonderful songs,
she just can't keep them inside.
Playing with her friends or jumping up and down,
eating a bowl full of cake.
These are the things that make Joy happy,
she'll jump and smile and shake.
Everyone likes her, they all gather close.
Her face is a pretty lily, her skin is softer than down.
She's the brightest emotion in town.
Everyone likes her, they all come her way,
there are many ways to get her to arrive,
unicorns, friends and cake,
they're sure to make joy stay.
