You're high, so am I,
Let's be happy together!
You blue, me too,
Let's forget about stormy weather!

You've lost your baby and I've lost mine,
I've got the nickel and you've got a dime,
We'll drown our troubles in wine,
So we'll be happy together!

Why should we worry, just because they turned us down?
Come on, babe, let's show 'em, that we're nobody's clown!

Now, you can dance and I can sing,
I've got the finger and you've got the ring,
We'll get the parson to fix this thing,
So we'll be happy together!

Why should we worry, just because they turned us down?
Come on, babe, we'll show 'em, we'll show 'em that we're no clown!

You can dance and I can sing,
I've got the finger and you've got the ring,
But-a-dut-da-da-doodle-da-da-doodle-um-dum!
So we'll be happy together!
