The title for this song was taken from a famous quote by Meher Baba.  Baba was a spiritual master in India and lived from 1894-1969.  Baba often said to his religious followers, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”

Following are the lyrics to the song Bobby McFerrin released and sang in September 1988, when he was 38 years old.  If you go to you tube and listen to his song, it will inspire you to become Happy.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . .Here’s a little song I wrote, you might want to sing it note for note.  Don’t worry, be happy.

In every life we have some trouble, but when you worry, you make it double.  Don’t worry, be happy.

Ain’t got no place to lay your head.  Somebody came and took your bed.  Don’t worry, be happy.

The land-lord say your rent is late.  He may have to litigate.  Don’t worry, be happy.  Look at me I’m happy.

Let me give you my phone number.  When you worry call me, I will make you happy. Don’t worry, be happy.

Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style.  Ain’t got no girl to make you smile.  Don’t worry, be happy.

Cause when you worry your face will frown and that will bring everybody down.  So don’t worry, be happy.  Don’t worry, be happy now.

Don’t worry, Don’t worry, don’t do it, be happy.  Let the smile on your face.  Don’t bring everybody down like this.

Don’t worry, it soon will pass, whatever it is.  Don’t worry, be happy.  I’m not worried.  I’m happy.
