Sitting on the front porch, on the swing
Write a happy song that the world can sing
And it don’t matter who you are
If this is life then you’re the star

When you were young, you use to dream
You’d close your eyes and make believe
Tell me now can you still see?
You’re everything that you want to be

I know this girl she’s so beautiful
She lights the room up and my soul
So many things that I want to say
Turn the song up, let the music play

Sitting on the front porch, on the swing
Write a happy song that the world can sing
And it don’t matter who you are
This is life and you’re the star
