If You Want To Be Happy:Jimmy Soul.
#1 in 1963.

CHORUS:
Eb                                         F
If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life,
             Dm                Gm
never make a pretty woman your wife.
            Eb                F 
So, from my personal point of view, get an ugly 
        F7    Bb
girl to marry you.

CHORUS:
Eb                                         F
If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life,
             Dm                Gm
never make a pretty woman your wife.
            Eb                F 
So, from my personal point of view, get an ugly 
        F7    Bb
girl to marry you.


#1.
Bb
A pretty woman makes her husband look small,
         F                    Bb
and very often causes his downfall.
Bb
As soon as he marries her, then she starts,
          F                          Bb
doin' the things that will break his heart.

#2.
Bb
But if you make an ugly woman your wife,
          F                          Bb
you'll be happy for the rest of your life.
Bb
An ugly woman cooks your meals on time,
              F                 Bb
she'll always give you peace of mind.

CHORUS:
Eb                                         F
If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life,
             Dm                Gm
never make a pretty woman your wife.
            Eb                F 
So, from my personal point of view, get an ugly 
        F7    Bb

#3.
A#             Bb
Don't let your friends say you have no taste,
    F                     Bb
go ahead and marry her anyway.
Bb
Though her face is ugly and her eyes don't match,
             F                  Bb
take it from me, she's a better catch.

CHORUS:
Eb                                         F
If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life,
             Dm                Gm
never make a pretty woman your wife.
            Eb                F

(Ad lib:Spoken:)
Eb
Say man!

Hey baby!
           F
I saw your wife the other day!

Yeah?
                Eb
Yeah, and she's ug-leeee!
            F
Yeah, she's ugly, but she sure can cook, baby!
        Bb
Yeah, alright!

CHORUS:
Bb              Eb                         F
If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life,
             Dm                Gm
never make a pretty woman your wife.

OUTRO:
Eb                                         F
