Oh, oh, oil is expensive
The whole city’s gotta change to gas
It’s not enough that students get into fights
They also deal with their partners leaving, how nerve racking
As for money, rich people can be unfortunate
And become the poor papaya salad vendor
Oh, oh, life is definitely chaotic

*It’s really besetting and puts a damper in my heart
Getting dumped by your girlfriend, you’re crying a river
You don’t make enough money
It doesn’t circulate in time
If you’re thinking too hard,
Then just stop thinking, it’s easy to do
Just say, ‘Hah! Hey!’
Don’t be engrossed in it, Ay! Oh!
Dwelling in your worries won’t help anything
That’s no good, that over there’s no good
Go, ‘Hey! Hah!’
Throughout your body and heart, Ay! Oh!
Good and bad people all face disheartening situations
Why be so tense? Just keep on smiling

**Listen carefully to the person who once ran out of so much money
Now the only thing he can afford is a down payment
Alright, there’s one dharmic provision
In which our fathers have told us to live an adequate lifestyle
Not with our necks askew
Whenever you’re stressed, agitated, or worried
If you’re feeling uneasy just go dance on the floor
Wake up in the morning and throw your stress into the waterway
And wave, bye-bye, bye-bye, goodbye
Oh, why be so stressed out?

Repeat * & **

Just go dance on the floor
Wake up in the morning and throw your stress into the waterway
And wave, bye-bye, bye-bye, goodbye, bye-bye
Say goodbye
Keep on smiling, keep on smiling
Keep on smiling, keep on smiling

Whenever you’re stressed, agitated, or worried
If you’re feeling uneasy just go dance on-on-on-on the floor
Live an adequate lifestyle, not with our necks askew
