Oh please be mine.

Hello sunshine, goodbye rain,

She's my steady, I'm her man,
I'm gonna love her all I can.
Gonna cruise her round the town,
Show everybody what I've found
Rock'n'roll with all my friends
Hopin' the music never ends.

These Happy Days are yours and mine (oh Happy Days)
These Happy Days are yours and mine, Happy Days.
