"Happy" (快乐 kuài lè ) is a Groovi Pauli & Friends song from their 2009 album Mandarin Chinese Songs for Kids. It is part of a series of songs about feelings. We hope you feel happy watching it while learning how to say happy in Chinese. :)

It is written in a bilingual style with direct translation, an approach we altered on subsequent albums in favor of simple all-Chinese lyrics.

This music video was shot by Groovi Pauli & Friends on the spectacular, quiet beaches of Cebu, The Philippines in 2009. Technically, this video is different from our more "polished" recent music videos, such as "Halloween". The syncing of the video with the music was a challenge. Not to worry, as the meaning of the lyrics comes through, enhanced by the video and photos (from Creative Commons).

The lyrics are as follows, including pinyin (in parentheses) as reference for Chinese characters:

Introduction:
你好吗? (nǐ hǎo ma "how are you") You look so happy.
Ya, 我快乐! (wǒ kuài lè "I am happy")
Chorus:
快乐 (kuài lè "happy") Ah! Ah!
真高兴 (zhēn gāo xìng "very happy"), not worried 'bout a thing.
快乐 (kuài lè "happy") Ah! Ah!
真高兴 (zhēn gāo xìng "very happy"), not worried 'bout a thing.
快乐 (kuài lè "happy"). I'm happy!
你快乐吗?我很快乐. (nǐ kuài lè ma wǒ hěn kuài lè "Are you happy? I am very happy.")

Verse:
什么让你觉得快乐呢?(shén me ràng nǐ jué dé kuài lè ne)
What makes you happy?
每一个人不一样! (měi yī gè rén bù yí yàng Everybody's different.)
Different things make different people happy.
