Lyrics

Happiness is something if you give it away,
you give it away, you give it away.
Happiness is something if you give it away,
then it comes right back to you.

Oh it 's just like a magic penny.
Hold on tight and you won 't get any.
Lend it, spend it, give it away,
then it comes right back to you.

A hug is something if you give it away,
you give it away, you give it away.
A hug is something if you give it away,
then it comes right back to you

Oh it 's just like a magic penny.
Hold on tight and you won 't get any.
Lend it, spend it, give it away.
Then it comes right back to you.

Love is something if you give it away,
you give it away, you give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
then it comes right back to you.

Oh it 's just like a magic penny.
Hold on tight and you won 't get any.
Lend it, spend it, give it away.
Then it comes right back to you.
