Well I don't know where I'm goin' to,
But I know just what I've gotta do,
I'm gonna make you smile,
Cause your happiness means something to me,
Blue Skies lookin' down,
Wipe away every trace of a frown,
Not feelin' down anymore.

Lordy lord, lordy lord,
Lordy lord, lordy lord,
Lordy lord, lordy lordy,
Lordy lord, lordy lord.

Well I have a job that I must do,
Gonna sing my songs for you,
Cause when I see you smile,
I know that everything has been worthwhile,
And I do believe I'm gonna make you smile.

Lordy lord, lordy lord,
Lordy lord, lordy lord,
Lordy lord, lordy lordy,
Lordy lord, lordy lord.

Well, digga, digga, digga, digga, di, di, digga,
Di, g'di, di, di,
G'di, g'di, g'di, g'di, di, di,
Yeah, digga, digga, digga, digga, di, di, digga,
Di, g'di, di, di,
G'di, g'di, g'di, g'di, g'digga,
Di, g'di, di, di.

Come listen and be free of worthless ties,
I would love to see you spread your wings and fly,
Cause when I see you fly,
I know that everything's blue skies lookin' down,
Wipe a way every trace of a frown,
Not feelin' down anymore.

Lordy lord, lordy lord,
Lordy lord, lordy lord,
Lordy lord, lordy lordy,
Lordy lord, lordy lord.
