HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WHOLE USA



"The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA" is a country and pop music song written, composed, and recorded by Donna Fargo. It is written in the voice of a newlywed girl, sung to her new husband. It has since become her signature song.

Fargo told Tom Roland in The Billboard Book of Number One Country Hits that she wrote the song with a different title originally. "It really started out to be 'Happiest Girl in the World,' but the rhyme scheme got to be too unnatural, so I changed it to 'U.S.A.' It kind of wrote itself after that.

A rumor later circulated that the line "skip-a-dee-doo-dah" was originally written as "zip-a-dee-doo-dah," and that the Walt Disney Company subsequently sued Fargo as soon as they became aware of the song and its line, demanding that the original line be changed. Fargo has since put the rumor to rest, stating that "skip-a-dee-doo-dah" was indeed the original line and that no such lawsuit ever took place.

THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WHOLE USA

Shine on me sunshine
Walk with me world, it's a skippidy doo da day
I'm the happiest girl in the whole U.S.A.

Good morning, mornin', hello sunshine
Wake up, sleepy head
Why'd you move that bojangle clock
So far away from the bed?

Just one more minute that's why we moved it
One more hug or two
Do you love wakin' up next to me
As much as I love wakin' up next to you?

You make the coffee, I'll make the bed
I'll fix your lunch, and you'll fix mine!
Now tell me the truth do these old shoes look funny?
Honey, it's almost nine

Now you be careful, got to go
"I love you, have a beautiful day!"
And kiss the happiest girl in the whole U.S.A.

Skippidy doo da thank you
Lord for makin' him for me
And thank you for letting life turn out the way
That I always thought it could be

There once was a time, that I could not imagine
How it would feel to say I'm the happiest girl in the whole U.S.A.

Now shine on me sunshine
Walk with me world, it's a skippidy doo da day
I'm the happiest girl in the whole U.S.A.

Shine on me sunshine
Walk with me world, it's a skippidy doo da day
I'm the happiest girl in the whole U.S.A.

Shine on me sunshine
Walk with me world, it's a skippidy doo da day
I'm the happiest girl in the whole U.S.A.
