"If you're Happy and You Know It" is a Children's Song which like The Wheels on the Bus is thought to have originated in the USA during the 20th century. However the simple song structure and its melody are almost certainly older than this. It is one of those songs which are repetitive in nature, easy to learn and allow for a certain amount of invention. It is a good song to engender a community spirit in a scouting or guide group, or to pass the time on a journey.
