Eddie Kendricks - Happy Lyrics

Happy, make you happy, baby

I just wanna make you happy
Make you happy, baby

Ain't no mountain too cloudy skies
When trouble pressing depression should make you cry
I will show you a better side
Where there's a rainbow shining just for your eyes
Happy, gonna make you happy, baby

Don't be sad and blue, happy's come for you
I will take your frown, turn it up side down
Every, every little care I'll chug away some where
If a tear should fall down your pretty face
It will be from happy
Let me make you happy, baby

For your smile I'll be a clown
I'll go get my laugh bags and my funny shoes
Bring your heart and sit right down
There is nothing I won't do just to make you happy
I just wanna make you happy, baby

I'm so close I feel your sorrow too
When I'm see you cry, my eyes won't stay dry, ooh...
Baby can't you see, I just wanna be
I wanna be your happy
I wanna make you happy, baby

I want, want you in my arms be your blanket keep you safe and warm
I want to be your guiding light
Let me lead you down the path of light

Happy baby, baby...
I won't let them take your smile away

Don't be sad and blue, happy's come for you
I will take your frown, turn it up side down
Every, every little care I'll chug away some where
If a tear should fall down your pretty face
I'm so close I feel your sorrow too
When I'm see you cry, my eyes won't stay dry, ooh...
Baby can't you see, I just wanna be
I wanna be your happy...

  45. hollidayevery

    A few posts on YouTube make the wrong assumption that Eddie only had Keel On Trucking and Boogie Down as hits. WRONG!!! Thosr were probably the biggest cross over hits but this album was called THE HIT MAN for a reason... Eddie was producing HITS... TOP 10 and TOP 20 hits with 1 or 2 per album and many great genre busting radio hits! He was nothing short oc amazing and the most successful Temptation after goibg solo.

    Don't play him down.


    hollidayevery Agree

    Ann Clarke

    He did extremely well in the Caribbean, especially in the jamaica where he was very famous, the Album Vintage 78 was a top seller there in 1979, Eddie knew of this, he did shows there on several occasions, can you imagine the rest of the Caribbean Islands.

  46. Ty the singer88

    Eddie is great!

  47. Wisdom & Beauty

    Eddie makes me happy !

  48. Darnell Webb

    and they said he needed the Temptations not on this hit very happy thank you

  49. Chief 91

    Eddie- Union Springs, Birmingham Paul- Birmingham Melvin- Mobile, Montgomery Dennis- Fairfield

  50. Chief 91

    Otis was the only one that didn't have Alabama roots. David Ruffin's grandparents were from Alabama.

    What a piece! The piano, the trumpet, the rythm section... and Eddie! Once again, how a marvelous thing like this didn't play here in Brazil radio stations. Just Youtube to save us about, and the people like MsTexas73 giving us diamonds.

  77. fred scott

    What a singer and performer. Had a chance to see him perform at the Apollo when I was younger and what a treat it was. Surely missed. R.I.P. Eddie.


    fred scott that's awesome! wish I had the chance.

    Tina Marie

    @Lionel4482 Me too.

  78. 719kai719

  79. Beverly Everett

  80. Deanna Green

    This song makes me feel happy. Eddiw Kendricks had a beautiful voice."Don't be sad & blue happy's come for you"!nI'm in that old school mood.....

    Doreen Jackson

    Everytime i. Hear happy im. happy

  81. MsTexas73

    Eddie Kendricks is originally from Alabama.

    Sandra Gayle

    you can stop writing me with this if soul train had that many whites on it there would be no reason to call it soul train, you people really have no idea why Don even started soul train it was all about black Americans and our freedom fight here, let me tell you something and this is the last time you well here from me. first of all I am a original black panther, not only that I am the Great niece of Louis Armstrong and Mahalia Jackson was my aunt. I am also a black Harpist and I studied with the great Alice Coltrane, So when it comes to being black American you have nothing on me, nor can you are anyone tell me about Don Cornelius or Eddie Kendricks who use to come to our home, I knew Eddie very well. not Just Eddie but Michael Jackson and many of our black American stars, and I will say it again, There was NO whites on soul train when I dance on the train. And you can take it anyway you like.


    Sandra Gayle Ma'am. Again. I don't know where in ANY of MY post your read that I said I ever danced on Soul Train because I have NEVER stated that. NOR am I a white woman. I am ALL black baby. Check my page. I've already explained my avitar. I even posted from my other account WITH A PHOTO OF MYSELF ON IT. And you still don't seem to understand. There is also video of me posted on my channel. You can also check my Facebook as I invited you to do so. That is IF YOU CHOOSE TO KNOW THE TRUTH. HOWEVER, if you don't it's cool. But please do not come on MY channel being disrespectful to me, my posts or any posters on here. You may want to READ POSTS CAREFULLY before assuming things.

    I don't know where you got or get the idea that this is cool. BUT it is not. So please chill all the way out.

    Thanks in advance.

    And as usual. Thanks for stopping through to enjoy the music.

    Chermaine Bigby

    Sandra Gayle I liked how you stated it about our Black African American history sister

    Tina Marie

    Eddie was born in Union Spring, Alabama. Died in Birmingham, AL where he's also laid to rest.

  82. MsTexas73

    Same title....different song.  This is NOT a cover.  Just like there are different songs with the title "Fool's Paradise"...there are different songs titled "Happy".


    I have another title " here we go again"
    1) Minnie ripperton
    2) mint condition
    3) Isley brothers
    4) portrait


    @DoubleEdged7 Minnie Riperton's song is titled "Here We Go" so same as Portrait but not the Isleys or Mint Condition.


    Haven't heard from you in six months . I hope the reasons were not too serious. If you have a Facebook page I would like to discuss music tv shows cars anything

  83. pmary novak

    This is what inspired Pharrell! To cover it. Anybody knows eddie Kendrick is originally from chicago?

    veronica mosley

    He Said Birmingham On A Talk Show With David Ruffin.


    pmary novak Eddie (and also Paul Williams) was originally from Birmingham, Alabama.

  84. Mikki Jaye

    The original Happy.  Pharrell's okay.

  85. d.sadiq davis

    The brotha, made a big difference in my life with that song...

  86. ronrico629

    A lot of us Motown & Temptation fans are so thankful, for having Eddie, and the rest of the group in our lives. But, what many of don't think about, is the powerful 7 brilliant team of songwriters, behind the songs (like this one) that moved so many of us. Frank Wilson, was one of the writers who wrote or co-wrote many of Eddie's biggest hits.


    Yep!!! Pastor Frank Wilson (as I knew and loved him) was an amazing writer and producer. Thanks for giving him his props. He is missed.

    Nurse McFarlane

    The writing by Mr. Wilson and the singing by Mr. Kendrick lives on. They are dynamic.

  87. Edward Dawkins

    Real music !!!! Eddie !!!!

  88. Alton Gamble

    Are You sure it wasn't an eight-track rather than a cassette?

  89. MsTexas73

    Hi there! So nice that you posted. I am a member of the group Soul Train Fans...we LOVE meeting the former dancers. If you are on Facebook, please let me know. I am friends with several of the dancers from your era.

  90. Sandra Gayle

    I am one of the soul train dancers and I was there when Eddie was on soul train, this put me right back, much love Eddie and Don


    Hi. Thanks for posting. I bet that was an amazing taping!

  91. Jimmy Sutton

    Just the most awesome voice of all time in the whole wide world!

    Elisa George

    Must Agree! Vocals still unmatched today! And it's fixing to be 2020!!😊

    Elisa George

    Hey! And as old as this song is.Hearing it again. I'm kinda hearing Curtis Mayfeild sound in it.

  92. Ann Davis

    like all great men they dont get their credit untill theyre gone

  93. galfromolskool muzik

    Many thanks for this song. This the anthem back in the day for me & my sisters, the one who introduced us to it and loved best has passed. Hearing this brings her memories back in full dancing flava. Keep the classic alive & kicking. Good for you.
