Long Life, 
Lot's of HappinessPerry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
( Long life, lots of happiness, good wine, 
lots of pretty kids . . . )
 
We gotta be one, one happy time . . .
 
Drive in show, covered with snow, 
but we never felt the cold! 
We bought us a blanket 
and I always meant to thank it 
for huggin' us so close!
 
So we loved and laughed 
an' the world was our bankroll to spend ( bankroll to spend! )
I took you to dinner, chow main and egg rolls 
the fortune cookies that read ( cookies read! )
 
Long life, lot's of happiness, good wine, 
lot's of pretty kids . . . 
we gotta be one, one happy time . . .
 
It was a bitter wine, our first sip of time
then we drank 'till the sweet stuff ran dry
through sunshine an' roses, the winter's red noses 
the days softly tip toeing by!
 
Now, you're the good ol' days 
as you come back to play on my mind 
the time of the rain, the last time you came 
you lived by those silly old lines!
 
Long life, lot's of happiness, good wine, 
lot's of pretty kids . . . 
we gotta be one, one happy time . . .
 
. . . long life, lot's of happiness, good wine, 
lot's of pretty kids . . . 
we, we gotta be one, one happy time . . .
