Perry Como
Happy Man ( If I Ever Find the Time )
 
There's a road that someday I'm gonna walk down,
If I ever find the time!
I'll dig my toes in that warm and friendly sand,
And I'll be all through dreamin' yeah,
Feelin' just like laughin'
Be a very happy man!
 
( La, la la la, la . . . la la, la la la la! )
 
There's a song that someday I'm gonna sing,
If I ever find the time!
And I'll throw back my head and sing just like a songbird,
And I'll be all through dreamin' yeah,
Feelin' just like laughin'
Be a very happy man!
 
( La, la la la, la . . . la la, la la la la! )
 
Time grows short and I haven't done a thing,
Time grows short for the dreamer and his dream,
Well a man who won't take a chance,
He never finds the way,
But for the dreamer,
Tomorrow is never today!
 
( La, la la la, la . . . la la, la la la la! )
 
There's a girl that someday I'll say hello to,
If I ever find the time!
I'll touch her hair and look into her eyes,
And I'll be all through dreamin' yeah,
Feelin' just like laughin'
Be a very happy man!
 
( La, la la la, la . . . la la, la la la la! )
La, la la la, la . . . la la, la la la la!
( La, la la la, la . . . la la, la la la la! )
La, la la la, la . . . la la, la la la la! ( fade out )
