  1. So fun thanks!

  2. -4 is easier to sing for me

  3. iamlittletash

    Whats the best strumming pattern for this?

  4. -2 sounds right on to me. Anyone agree?

    • Romansmoll

      em, well i’d say that “0” is just fine when you sing it along but “-2” woerks just as fine if you find it easier to sing ))

  5. I find -2 the easiest and it still sounds super great :)

  6. Stuart C

    Try mashing this up with the song Don’t Worry Be Happy. It works a treat.

  7. Ajay kanodia

    not nice

  8. I love this song, it makes me feel good so who cares if others find it cheesey

    Sing loud! sing proud !and pump out that simlpe 3 chord rhythem on a stringed instrument and you got your self a room of happy people.

    Perfect party song (if its the kind of party where guitars are)

    Also recomended for beginers

  9. lokong pinoy
