If You’re Happy And You Know It Clap Your Hands

This has always been a favourite children’s action chorus, but we also sang it as teenagers at Young People’s Meeting on Friday evenings. Uncle Allan would lead the singing back then, and every time . . . I mean every single time when we reached the part about stomping our feet, we could see him raising high his foot at the side of the podium and stomping it for us to see. That always brought smiles to our faces.

If You’re Happy And You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it
Clap your hands (clap, clap),
If you’re happy and you know it
Clap your hands (clap, clap),
If you’re happy and you know it
Then your life will surely show it;
If you’re happy and you know it
Clap your hands (clap, clap).

If you’re happy and you know it
Stomp your feet (stomp, stomp),
If you’re happy and you know it
Stomp your feet (stomp, stomp),
If you’re happy and you know it
Then your life will surely show it;
If you’re happy and you know it
Stomp your feet (stomp, stomp).

If you’re happy and you know it
Say “Amen!” . . . Amen!
If you’re happy and you know it
Say “Amen!” . . . Amen!
If you’re happy and you know it
Then your life will surely show it;
If you’re happy and you know it
Say “Amen!” . . . Amen!

If you’re happy and you know it
Do all three (clap, clap); (stomp, stomp); Amen!
If you’re happy and you know it
Do all three [clap, clap); (stomp, stomp); Amen!
If you’re happy and you know it
Then your life will surely show it;
If you’re happy and you know it
Do all three [clap, clap); (stomp, stomp); Amen!
