Life’s a piece of cake….

During our ‘There and Back Again 1875-2015 Tour’ of Iceland last summer we enjoyed the most wonderful of dinners at Tjöruhúsið in Ísajörður in the Westfjords of Iceland. It was indeed a happy highlight of the trip! Fresh, abundant, tasteful food warmed us after a long day of adventuring in the most amazing of landscapes. It’s easy to be happy there and to know that everything is truly great and that everything we need is right in front of us. Life is a happy song when there’s someone by your side to sing along!

Here’s the lyrics for the song that inspired this post:

The Muppets:Life’s A Happy Song Lyrics

Everything is great, everything is grand
I’ve got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
Everything is perfect it’s falling into place
I can’t seem to wipe this smile off my face

Life’s a happy song when there’s someone by my side to sing along

When you’re alone life can be a little rough
It makes you feel like you’re three foot tall
When it’s just you times can be tough
When there’s no one there to catch your fall

Everything is great, everything is grand
I’ve got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
Everything is perfect, it’s falling into place
I can’t seem to wipe this smile off my face

Life smells like a rose with someone to paint, with someone to pose
Life’s a piece of cake with someone to pedal, someone to break
Life is full of glee with someone to saw, someone to see
Life’s a happy song when there’s someone by my side to sing along

I’ve got everything that I need right in front of me
Nothing’s stopping me nothing that I can’t be with you right here next to me

Life’s a piece of cake with someone to give and someone to take
Life’s a piece of pie with someone to wash and someone to dry
Life’s an easy road with someone beside you to share the load
Life is full of highs with someone to stir and someone to fry

Life’s a leg of lamb with someone there to lend a hand
Life’s a bunch of flowers with someone to while away the hours
Life’s a fillet of fish, eh! …Yes it is
Life’s a happy song when there’s someone by your side to sing along

I’ve got everything that I need right in front of me
Nothing’s stopping me, nothing that I can’t be with you right here next to me
I’ve got everything that I need right in front of me
I’ve got everything that I need right in front of me
Nothing’s stopping me nothing that I can’t be with you right here next to me

You’ve got everything that you need right in front of you
Nothing’s stopping you nothing that you can’t do that the world will throw at you

Life’s a happy song when there’s someone by your side to sing
Life’s a happy song when there’s someone by your side to sing
Life’s a happy song when there’s someone by your side to sing along
