I just wanted to dedicate this song to my ex-colleague who keep playing this in the office.

I did some search from the internet, apparently this song is often erroneously attributed to Bob Marley, which is not possible because Bob Marley died in 1981 and the single was released1988.

Whenever I see this title,  I will remember the phrase in  Swahili called “Hakuna Matata” which is translated literally as "There are no worries." It was made famous by the movie Lion King.

“Don’t Worry Be Happy” is the unofficial anthem of Jamaica, and according to Wikipedia, after Hurricane Gilbert struck Jamaica in 1988 , it clause months of hardship to the locals.

“Don’t Worry Be Happy” is one of a rare song that is completely performed in A cappella. It was rank No 31 in the 100 greatest hits in the 80s

Sometimes I tend to worry often, so I guess the song serves as a reminder to me as well. I would also like to dedicate this song to everyone who is now troubled by worries. May you all be happy and smile often Smile 

Title : Don’t Worry Be Happy

Here’s a little song i wrote,
you might want to sing it note for note,
don’t worry, be happy

in every life we have some trouble,
when you worry you make it double
don’t worry, be happy

don’t worry be happy now
don’t worry be happy
don’t worry be happy
don’t worry be happy
don’t worry be happy

ain’t got no place to lay your head,
somebody came and took your bed,
don’t worry, be happy
the landlord say your rent is late,
he may have to litigate,
don’t worry (small laugh) be happy,

look at me I’m happy,
don’t worry, be happy

i give you my phone number,
when your worried, call me,
i make you happy

don’t worry, be happy

ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style,
ain’t got no gal to make you smile
but don’t worry, be happy
cause when you worry, your face will frown,
and that will bring everybody down,
so don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, be happy now…

don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, be happy

now there this song i wrote
i hope you you learned it note for note
like good little children
don’t worry be happy

listen to what i say

in your life expect some trouble
when you worry you make it double
don’t worry be happy
be happy now

don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, don’t worry, don’t do it,
be happy,put a smile on your face,
don’t bring everybody down like this
don’t worry, it will soon pass whatever it is,
don’t worry, be happy,
I’m not worried

Don’t Worry Be Happy!!
