happy guy lyrics – devo

well, it’s an open road
and it’s full of life
stretchin’ on and on
but it stops somewhere

because time keeps tickin’ away
time keeps on tickin’ away
because time keeps tickin’ away
time keeps on tickin’ away

let me tell you ’bout a boy
an average spud, he was twice in love
with two very different girls knowin’ life is short
he told them both the truth but they already knew

now he’s a happy guy
now he’s a happy guy
now he’s a happy guy

well, it’s a random turn
on a game show wheel
unpredictable
but it stops somewhere

because time keeps tickin’ away
time keeps on tickin’ away
because time keeps tickin’ away
time keeps on tickin’ away

let me tell you ’bout a man
a tragic case, love kicked in his face
he shriveled up and died from a broken heart
reincarnated as a work of art
he’s got a brand new start

hey, hey, hey, hey
hey, hey, hey, hey

now he’s a happy guy
now he’s a happy guy
now he’s a happy guy
now he’s a happy guy
