Lyrics:

Pack up your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

The sun is shinin', c'mon get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
We're goin' to the Promised Land

        We're headin' 'cross the river
        Gonna wash our sins in the tide
        It's all so peaceful
        On the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

The sun is shinin', c'mon get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
We're goin' to the Promised Land

        We're headin' 'cross the river
        Wash our sins away in the tide
        It's all so peaceful
        On the other side

{instrumental break}

        We're headin' 'cross the river
        Wash our sins away in the tide
        It's all so peaceful
        On the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase your cares away!!
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

{scat to end}
