lifes a happy song

Everything is great everything is grand
I got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
Everything is perfect its falling into place
I cant seem to wipe this smile off my face
Life's a happy song when theres someone by my side to sing along
When your alone life can be a little rough
It makes you feel like your 3 feet tall
When its just you times can be tough
When theres no one there to catch your fall
Everything is great everything is grand
I got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
Everything is perfect its falling into place
I cant seem to wipe this smile off my face
Life smells like a rose with someone to ping
with someone to pose
Lifes like a piece of cake with someone to pedal
Someone to break
Life is full of glee with someone to saw
and someone to see
Life's a happy song when theres someone by my side to sing along
Ive got everything that I need right in front of me
Nothings stopping me nothing i cant be
with you right here next to me
Lifes a piece of cake with someone to give and someone to take
Lifes a piece of pie with someone to wash and someone to dry
Lifes an easy road with someone with you to share the load
Life is full of highs with someone to stir
and someone to fry
Life is like a lamb and someone to lend a hand
Lifes a bunch of flowers with someone a while to lay the hours
yes it is
Life's a happy song when theres someone by your side to sing along
ive got everything that i need right in front of me
Nothings stopping me nothing i cant be
with you right here next to me
ive got everything that i need right in front of me
Sorry super excited
this is the most romantic thing ever
ive always drempt of see los angeles
I know walter cant wait either
you dont mind if hes coming right
oh no no of course not
as long as we can spend our aniversery dinner together
thats all i ask
ok let me check on walter
everything is great everything is grand
expect garys already off with his friend
its never me and him
its always me and and him
wonder when its going to end
right now i guess its ok
maybe someday i know how its going to be
youll ride up on a steed and get down on 1 knee
and say mary will you marry me please
ive got everything that i need right in front of me
Nothings stopping me nothing i cant be
with you right here next to me
youve got everything you need right in front of you
nothings stopping you that you cant do you
got the world in front of you
lifes a happy song when theres somone by your side to sing
lifes a happy song when theres somone by your side to sing
lifes a happy song when theres somone by your side to sing along

I heard the song, and I can't wait to see the visuals. I wonder if all of them are human or if it's a mix of humans and puppets. Many of the voices sound a bit muppet-y, and I thought I heard a voice that sounded like Miss Piggy. Or I wonder if the regular performers provided voices and live actors lip-synched to them (or even if it was changed for the album).

Though I clearly heard Feist and Mickey Rooney there. I wonder if their characters only appear in the song, or if they have any additional roles. If it's the first, then I guess this would be the first time a Muppet movie had celebrity cameos who only appeared to sing minor verses of a song. Makes me wonder if the celebrity cameos will be credited like in the first three movies, where they just listed the cameos and didn't say who the actors portrayed.

The rehearsal footage that was posted on YouTube long ago included the audio for the closing version. But for some reason, until I heard the opening version, I hadn't quite heard the song or voices as clearly until after I seeked it out again. Since the audio track was just playing over the rehearsal, I guess it's similar to listening to it on an album, only it's not as clear. But even after hearing that more clearly, there is a bit of intriguing mystery. I noticed one voice early on that I had trouble identifying, I think it came after Gonzo or Mary. I wonder if that might be Uncle Deadley or Sam the Eagle (though something about the voice sounded a bit like Clifford, whom I doubt it is). And I guess Mickey Rooney appeared in the reprise; I heard a voice saying "Stop singing! We already did this song!"

The first time Gary and Walter sing the "I've got everything I need right in front of me" line, I can't help but wonder if they are surrounded by Muppet merchandise.

Here's a video of rehearsal footage which appears to be most of the closing reprise of the song (I think the beginning might be missing, but we'll have to wait until the soundtrack comes out if not the movie, or unless a sneak peek of that goes online).

I thought I heard Wayne Newton at the end of the song."When there's someone by your side to sing" is the line I heard

Oh, and great lyrics! although I would like to point out, I'm pretty sure the line is "someone to paint" not "someone to ping":sing:

I hate to be pedantic (actually, I love being pedantic, just not towards other people :embarrassed:), but I don't think that's right (and you missed a line :oops:).

I think it goes:

Life's a leg of lamb with someone there to lend a hand,
Life's a bunch of flowers with someone to while away the hours,
Life's a fillet of fish...yes it is

Just adding my two cents to the collection can.​
