With a Smile

I work in a room the size of a broom closet and I am happy.
My clothes are full of holes and I am happy.
I eat beans for breakfast and beans for dinner and I am happy.
A pack of peanuts with my paycheck and I am happy.
A 3-cent raise, some personal days and I am truly happy.
I am happy, I am happy
lordy lordy, I am happy
peanuts, praises, beans and raises
I am happy.
