Yazoo - Happy People Lyrics



Take no notice 'cos I'm just the same
There's a thousand other faces with the very same name.
And we look like each other,
And we all live together,
And we talk about the same things,
And we never try and change things.

[Chorus]
We're the happy, happy people
[repeat]

We never give opinions and we never state views
After all, you can't be sure that what we say is true
And if you want to join us, you can follow on behind us.
You can talk about your visions
You can make some big decisions.

[Chorus repeat]

We believe in having fun and smiling all the time
And sometimes we're on TV if we're over 69
And when we have a raffle, then it's just a big reshuffle.
It's a democratic poll
But we're the ones who are in control.

[Chorus repeat]

    Vince the father of DM✌️😍😇♥️😇

  31. hunter

    I can`t understand why this wonderful song has so little views. For me this is masterpiece.

    WTF how bizarre

    mainly cause it's tongue in cheek about 80s British politics and British society and it also applies to modern America.

    Mr Vuck Fiacom

    I remember a few years ago this song was really hard to find on YouTube. Probably just wasn't on here due to licensing issues.

    federico cacciamani

    Deaf people is a plague on these days . . .

    Steffen Kersten

    'm full agreeing with you!

    DXWNFALL

    It's really popular on Spotify and Tidal, so don't worry

  32. Lupcio

    Tomasz co sie stalo z filmikami co jest zgrame czekam i czekam na kolejny i nic wchodze na kanal a tu pusto???????

  33. steve radford

    ADAM  SUKENIKE.This was the ONLY serious argument during the recording of You and Me Both?. I was under the impression they were on SUCH bad terms during recording that they were hardly EVER in the studio TOGETHER!. I'm sure Daniel Miller mentioned this in an interview.FRom Moyet's point of view I can FULLY understand why she was so hesitant about this one.Not up to the quality of the other Y&MB tracks.

    Eimeara Stapleton

    Steve Radford, that's what I read too and Vince said they would have strangled each other if they had been in the studio together.

  34. Agnieszka

    2018?? I still love this song❤❤❤

    Marek Malinowski

    Ja.słucham :)

    Mirek Novak

  36. SONIC FOXX MUSIC

    I always sing this when i'm driving in a huge traffic queue.

    Nuff said....i don't think this is a happy song.

  37. Winter

    One more of my BSO from Summer 84.

  38. wayne frodsham

    i can see why she chose not to sing this song on the album its really not her style

    BAZ INGA

    Seruiously?IT'S SO DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND THIS....

    DXWNFALL

    @BAZ INGA yeah lol

  39. AnttiR85 FINLAND

    Great song:😃

  40. John Doe 878393719

    The Americans will bring me here.  Id est demonstrandum.  Also, twentieth.

    John Doe 878393719

    @John Doe Nevermind. Apparently it was a British-only release. How appropriate.

  41. TheBusterMan

    I think this is a dig at the Tory party.Maybe Moyet was a conservative,and didn't want to sing against them!

    Suilven Mountain

    +TheBusterMan this is a dig against liblabcon vote ukip!

  42. Adam Sukenick

    Moyet said the only serious argument she and Clarke had during recording of the album was over the song "Happy People", which she refused to sing. She told The Quietus in 2011, "There are just some places you can't go, I tried singing that song a couple of times but I couldn't genuinely bring anything to it so I wouldn't do it. But that's the only time I ever refused a song." As a result Clarke ended up singing on the track, the only Yazoo song on which he sings lead vocals (although his spoken word vocals are prominent on two tracks on Upstairs at Eric's, "I Before E Except After C" and "In My Room"). Clarke said that "Happy People" was written about the Liberal Party of which his mother had just become a member, but he declined to say whether the song was in support or against the party.

    Let me guess...AGAINST.

  45. Dopamine Serotonin

    Why is this song never included in their albums? North America doesnt have this included on "you and me both" :(

    Suilven Mountain

    +Dopamine Serotonin It was included on that album in the UK I remember listening to it when the album came out.

    FavreianVengeance

    Yea, WTF. This is like the best track on the album.

  46. Ewa Winkel

  50. Robert Malek

    wow to byly czasy tancow gdzie mozna bylo podczas tanca przytulic sie a nie skakac jak malpy obok siebie

  51. Jason Railson

    If Yazoo had existed in the Middle Ages, this would have been a N° 1 hit then on the boards.

  52. Curt Wakeman

    This track must be U.K only, it was'nt on my Yaz (You and Me Both) North American album cassette
