[Verse 1]
One day I'll say
Woke up to find a heap of a mess
Running for the bus, I cry
"Hold that bus called Happiness!"

[Chorus]
Why am I so slow?
If I only knew...
Say it isn't so
I wondered what I'd want without you

[Verse 2]
Through the back window
I thought I saw the color of her dress
Which way does it go?
Hmm, buddy, that's the bus called Happiness

[Chorus]
Why am I so slow?
If I only knew...
Say it isn't so
I wondered what I'd want without you

[Verse 1]
One day I'll say
Woke up to find a heap of a mess
Running for the bus, I cry
"Hold that bus called Happiness!"

[Chorus]
Why am I so slow?
If I only knew...
Say it isn't so
I wondered what I'd want without you
Why am I so slow?
If I only knew...
Say it isn't so
I wondered what I'd want without you
