SOTD: Happy with you

Paul’s new album Egypt Station recently hit #1 on the Billboard 100! How amazing for him. I think it’s well deserved as the album is really one of my favorites, especially today. Happy With You is a track that kind of reminds me of a Mother Nature’s Son type vibe. It’s overall just a sweet, mellow, love song. And that’s what Paul is known for.

McCartney’s First Debut at No. 1: Egypt Station is Macca’s first album to debut at No. 1. He had previously logged a pair of No. 2-debuting sets with 1997’s Flaming Pie and 2001’s Wingspan: Hits and History. As an aside, The Beatles logged four No. 1 debuts, all with albums in the 1990s and 2000s: Anthology 1 (1995), Anthology 2(1996) and Anthology 3 (1996) and 1 (2000). (It’s worth noting that before the chart began using Nielsen Music’s electronically-tracked point-of-sale information in May of 1991, only six albums debuted at No. 1.)

[Verse 1]
I sat around all day
I used to get stoned
I liked to get wasted
But these days I don‘t

'Cause I'm happy with you
I got lots of good things to do, oh yeah

[Verse 2]
I walked around angry
I used to feel bad
But nowadays my days
Don‘t have to be sad
'Cause I'm happy, with you
I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah

[Bridge 1]
Like, hear the high clear robin sing
Walk a bluebell carpet
Watch the children playing games
Catch a moon and drop it
Hear the gentle mantle roll
On a frosty morning
See the mighty ocean break
Like a sailor's warning

[Verse 3]
I used to drink too much
Forgot to come home
I lied to my doctor
But these days I don't
'Cause I'm happy with you
I got lots of good things to do, oh yeah

[Bridge 2]
Throw a pocketful of coins in the Trevi fountain
See an ice cold running stream
Rushing down the mountain
Hear a new born baby lamb
Calling for its mother
Watching reunited friends
Loving one another

[Verse 1]
I sat around all day
I liked to get stoned
I used to get wasted
But these days I don‘t

'Cause I'm happy with you
I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah

[Outro]
Mmm, happy with you
I'm happy with you
Happy with you

I will probably end up writing a blog post about each song on this album because that’s honestly how much I like it. I have written this so many times before on this blog but I cannot wait until I get to experience this music live in person. It’s going to be unreal for me.
