Fitzgerald, Ella - Get Happy Lyrics




Pack up your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

The sun is shinin', c'mon get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
We're goin' to the Promised Land

We're headin' 'cross the river
Gonna wash our sins in the tide
It's all so peaceful
On the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

The sun is shinin', c'mon get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
We're goin' to the Promised Land

We're headin' 'cross the river
Wash our sins away in the tide
It's all so peaceful
On the other side

We're headin' 'cross the river
Wash our sins away in the tide
It's all so peaceful
On the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase your cares away!!
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

  19. John Diamond

    Spectacular. And how about that killer big band backing her up, led by Billy May?!

  20. Maggie Koch

    What an amazing version of a classic feel-good jazz standard. No one can top Ella Fitzgerald for sheer power, joy, and melody.

    How come music has degenerated so much? Look at the jazz age, continue to Miles Davis, Coltrane etc. and then look at music now.

  43. Eleanor Rigby.

    how can one get happy about the judgment day? just saying.

    Psi Lo

    Well... I think because... Oh yeah! Perspective. That'll set a body straight. 🐝🍯 and a dash of understanding and acceptance perhaps, but really, Perspective is the jist of what is needed to get happy about the Days of the Judgement.

    James Walton

    If you've lived right in God's eye you should be happy for judgment day, because if you live a million years you'll still be dead alot longer than you'll ever be alive, your eternal reward.

  44. Übermensch
