You've Made Me So Very Happy

“It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing
that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”

You've Made Me So Very Happy

Written by Brenda Holloway (b. 21 June 1946), Patrice Holloway (23 Mar 1951 - 03 Oct 2006),
Frank Wilson (05 Dec 1940 – 27 Sept 2012), and Berry Gordy Jr. (b. 28 Nov 1929), 1967

Recorded by Blood, Sweat & Tears, 1969

I lost at love before
Got mad and closed the door
But you said, "Try, just once more"

I chose you for the one
Now we're having so much fun
You treated me so kind
I'm about to lose my mind
You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life

The others were untrue
But when it came to loving you
I'd spend my whole life with you

'Cause you came and you took control
You touched my very soul
You always showed me that
Loving you is where it's at
You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life
Thank you, babe
Yeah, yeah

I love you so much you see
You're even in my dreams
I can hear you
I can hear you callin' me
I'm so in love with you
All I ever want to do is
Thank you babe, thank you babe

[Instrumental Interlude]

You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life
You made me so very happy
You made me so so, so very happy, babe
I'm so glad you came
Into my life

I want to thank you, girl
Every day of my life
I want to thank you
You made me so very happy...
