Happiness has a welcoming smile
And never fails to do it in style.
Her hair is short and brown and soft
And she cleans her teeth every once in a while.
She has a younger brother called Fear
Who is always crying terrified tears
And has a second cousin called Excitement,
Who can never control herself!
Mother Joy is a very cheery lassie,
She can light up the room when she gets excited.
Father Anger is a grumpy old lad
Who is always shouting and never nice!
So I chase happiness because I like to smile
And I only get upset everyone once in a while!
