Juan Olivarez (september 12 / nyssa oregon)
Be happy and smile,
Sadness has gone out of style.
Show those teeth for a while.
Be happy let everyone see,
That you defy sadness and welcome glee.
Bounce along let people see.
Be happy whistle a tune,
From early morning till way past noon.
Until you see the rising moon.
Be happy and start a trend,
And then all hearts will start to mend.
Make everyone you see your friend.
