Happy Talk (1949)
(w) Oscar Hammerstein II (m) Richard Rodgers (I) Musical: South Pacific by Juanita Hall (RR) 1958 film version by Muriel Smith dubbing for Juanita Hall
Happy talk, keep talkin’ happy talk
Talk about things you’d like to do
You gotta have a dream; if you don’t have a dream
How you gonna have dream come true

Talk about a moon floating in de sky
Lookin’ like a lily on a lake
Talk about a bird learnin’ how to fly
Makin’ all de music he can make [Chorus]

Talk about a star lookin’ like a toy
Peekin’ through de branches of a tree
Talk about a girl, talk about a boy
Countin’ all de ripples in de sea [Chorus]

Talk about a boy sayin’ to de girl
“Golly baby I’m a lucky cuss”
Talk about a girl sayin’ to de boy
“You an’ me is lucky to be us” [Chorus]

Coda: If you don’t talk happy
An’ you never have a dream
Den you’ll never have a dream come true
