If You're Happy And You Know It

Watch the kids sing this song and act it out. Sing along!

Here are kids again acting it out. This one has lyrics. It uses "Tap your toe" in the second verse.

This YouTube video is animated and has lyrics, also. It uses "stamp your feet" in the second verse, and has a surprise ending! It's also a bit faster than the other two.




The lyrics

There exist several different variations to the lyrics, as you can hear if you listen to all three videos above. Here is one common version:

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. (clap clap)

If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet. (stomp stomp)

If you're happy and you know it, turn around. (spin around once)
If you're happy and you know it, turn around. (spin around once)
If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it.
If you're happy and you know it, turn around. (spin around once) 

If you're happy and you know it, shout "Hurray!" (yell hoo-ray!)
If you're happy and you know it, shout "Hurray!" (yell hoo-ray!)
If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you're happy and you know it, shout "Hurray!" (yell hoo-ray!)

If you're happy and you know it, do all four (clap, stomp, turn around, and say hooray at the same time)
If you're happy and you know it, do all four (clap, stomp, turn around, and say hooray at the same time)
If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you're happy and you know it, do all four. (clap, stomp, turn around, and say hooray at the same time)

One main variation is to sing "and you really want to show it," instead of "then your face will surely show it."

Additional verses can include "Tap your toe", "Stretch your arms", "Nod your head", "Wiggle your hips," "Stretch your arms," or anything fun you come up with! There is even a version where you're not always happy, but also angry, sad, scared, silly, friendly, sleepy and so on.
