Originally released in conjunction with the film Cocktail, the song peaked at No. 1 on September 24, 1988, displacing "Sweet Child o' Mine" by Guns N' Roses. The song also peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Tracks chart and No. 7 on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart.

[Verse 1] 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 But when you worry you make it double Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy now [Chorus] Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy [Verse 2] 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, be happy (Look at me, I'm happy) [Chorus] Don't worry, be happy (Hey I'll give you my phone number, when you worry call me I'll make you happy!) Don't worry, be happy [Verse 3] 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 [Chorus] Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy [Bridge] Now there is the song I wrote I hope you learned it note for note, like good little children Don't worry, be happy Now listen to what I said, in your life expect some trouble When you worry you make it double But don't worry, be happy, be happy now [Chorus] Don't worry, be happy 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
