Jimmy Durante - Make Someone Happy Lyrics

It's so important to make someone happy
Make just one someone happy
Make just one heart to heart you, you sing to

One smile that cheers you
One face that lights when it nears you
One girl you're - you're everything to

Fame, if you win it
Comes and goes in a minutes
Where's the real stuff in life, to cling to?

Love is the answer
Someone to love is the answer
Once you've found her
Build your world around her

Make someone happy
Make just one someone happy
And you will be happy too

Jimmy Durante Make Someone Happy Comments
  1. incog99 SKD

    Indeed. Make one happy and then all of a sudden there is another one! It's contagious!

  2. Mick Power

    Makes you swell with happiness

  3. Max Garcia

    It's so important to
    Make someone happy,
    Make just one someone happy;
    Make just one heart the heart you sing to.
    One smile that cheers you,
    One face that lights when it nears you,
    One girl you're ev'rything to.
    Fame if you win it,
    Comes and goes in a minute.
    Where's the real stuff in life to cling to?
    Love is the answer,
    Someone to love is the answer.
    Once you've found her, build your world around her.
    Make someone happy,
    Make just one someone happy,
    And you will be happy, too.

    Henrique Francisco

    Thanks man

    Interesting fact - Jimmy was born in 1893...

    As his commentary on the Bible as a whole, St. Augustine is tasked with showing the continuity between the Old and New Testaments, so long as you contrast that with Gibbons' radical thesis that Christianity is ultimately what undermined the Roman Empire on account of many local priests acquiring authority from an imperial head.

    Bruce Mincks

    Milton is the ultimate humanist in English as he was educated in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and Italian languages while also essential to us for the history which passes through London and Paris, not only for the legacy of his works of literature.

  6. Bruce Mincks


    Bruce Mincks

    Lucifer is the "light bearer" or morning star, the most beautiful angel;
    Satan is the accuser in the sense he takes you from subject to object;
    Mephistopheles is the intellect seeking, not finding God in his City.

  7. Bruce Mincks


    Not an easy search, mind you. Let's take another look at that Cain and Abel tale in terms of the Mancheist dualism St. Augustus found in Milan after he left Monica in Tunis. If that correspondence between lust and love also corresponds with the divine and animal, than the human is common, not merely rational. Now that "City on a hill" is something else, which pertains to historical process rather than physical process (as better described in his Confessions) in a more comprehensive universe than our natural one.

    This song reflects I love sounds like in a song and what I have found in my dear wife Fame and Fortune are temporal but life his love. Making her happy is where I find content. I prayed for a Christian wife to be sent to to me of the Lord's choice and he sent me much more then I deserved. Hoping that all that hear this find that kind of love

  51. William Hunter

    Jimmy was a great one. Love this song.

  52. Mark Blackburn

    Two favorite versions of MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY
    Earlier this evening Siriusly Sinatra satellite radio played my all-time favorite version of MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY. Tony Bennett and the late jazz piano giant Bill Evans . . . alone together in a studio “at about 3 in the morning” Tony said later. The lovely song is from a long-forgotten Broadway show DO RE ME with music and lyrics by Frank's friends, Jule Styne, Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Favorite line?

    “Fame, if you win it, comes and goes in a minute; where's the real stuff in life to cling to?

    My all-time favorite 'good advice' song, culminating as it does with the thought that, before we try to change the world, we can begin at home with love.

    "Make just ONE someone happy. Then you will be happy too!"


    My other all time favorite version? This one by Jimmy Durante -- featured in the soundtrack of the movie SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE. (And as we say at the movies, 'But this is where I came in').


    David Smith

    I love Tony Bennett, but this is Jimmy's song...no flies on Tony

    David Smith

    Great comments...the "Fame, if you win it..." quote is the truth...you nailed it friend

  53. Hans-Jürgen Berghausen

    Joey The decepticon

    goji penguin oh yeah I forgot this was in the film

  62. James Davis

    Isn't it funny how some pop songs sound wiser as you get older? So many people tell you to fulfill YOURSELF, to follow YOUR passion, to seek happiness. But the real secret is to make someone else happy -- then their happiness flows back to you.


    Too bad that everyone does not follow that basic idea.
