Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium    (1973)

Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium
Makes no difference who you are or where you're from
Everyone's invited so be sure to come
To Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium

Mrs. Johnson said one day the world should be improved
Boarded up her townhouse, threw away the key and moved
Bought some land beside the sea with trees and grass and sun
And called it Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium

Oh, Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium
Makes no difference who you are or where you're from
Everyone's invited so be sure to come
To Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium

You'll see Wall-Street brokers swinging on a garden gate
Happier than swinging deals or reading ticker-tape
You'll see nuclear professors playing tic-tac-toe
And generals with shiny medals sitting watching flowers grow

Oh, Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium
Makes no difference who you are or where you're from
Everyone's invited so be sure to come
To Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium

La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

If you've got a hang-up, hang it back up on the shelf
Forget it, break away and do your thing and be yourself

Oh, Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium
Makes no difference who you are or where you're from
Everyone's invited so be sure to come
To Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium

Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium
Makes no difference who you are or where you're from
Everyone's invited so be sure to come
To Mrs. Johnson's Happiness Emporium
