This song comes from the way back... as in like 1983/84 and has been a major driving force in my life ever since. It was the main reason I was happy in school, the main reason I was giddy out of school, and most importantly why I always wear a smile
Though this is not to say that I have been living a lie, far from that... I have always been rather happy, I blame it on being borderline hypermanic
...which I truly was up till the moment my Grandfather died. Its been down hill ever since... but it's been a slow decline, lol.
On many levels I am happier now, truly happier, not just strangely euphoric. I love my life, I love my wife, I love my home, my daughters, my pets, my farm life... I love everything about me.
But still this song lingers, adding a tweak to any frown that happens to creep up. Adding a smile where a smirk would be. Adding laughter where there used to be silence... as to me this song is a yearning for happiness. Something that should be strived for. Especially when you do not know what else to do....
If this song could be summed up in ONE word, that word of course would be...supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
And what better word is there than that?
So rather than sitting around wondering what to do, rather than sulking, smile. It does not matter if you can explain it, it doesn't matter if they will understand it... but a smile, any smile, leads to a genuine happiness that may or may not be explained by normal means, and that is something you will never find in any store.
