Life is simple and gay The bright sun rings with a quiet sound The sound of the bells has quieted down This morning the light hits it all The footlights of my head are lit again And the room I live in is finally bright
Just one beam is enough Just one burst of laughter My joy that shakes the house Restrains those wanting to die By the notes of its song
I sing off-key Ah it's funny My mouth open to every breeze Spews mad notes everywhere That emerge I don't know how To fly toward other ears
Listen I'm not crazy I laugh at the bottom of the stairs Before the wide-open door In the sunlight scattered On the wall among green vines And my arms are held out toward you
It's today I love you
