“Days can be sunny, with never a sigh
Don’t need what money can buyBirds in the trees sing their day full of songWhy shouldn’t we sing along? I’m chipper all the day, happy with my lotHow do I get that way? look at what I’ve gotI got rhythm, I got musicI got my manWho could ask for anything more? I got daisies, in green pasturesI got my manWho could ask for anything more?”
-Happy Birthday to Ella! The First Lady of Song.

Days can be sunny, with never a sigh

Don’t need what money can buy
Birds in the trees sing their day full of song
Why shouldn’t we sing along? 

I’m chipper all the day, happy with my lot
How do I get that way? look at what I’ve got

I got rhythm, I got music
I got my man
Who could ask for anything more? 
I got daisies, in green pastures
I got my man
Who could ask for anything more?”

-Happy Birthday to Ella! The First Lady of Song.
