What about me? That’s my first thought every morning. What happened to me is the last thought every night. Has this gotten me anywhere, anymore friends, anymore love, more joy? It should have by now. In fact, by now I should be a bundle of joy, because I say this mantra every day. What about me? What about me? What about? In fact, it's embarrassing. I say this mantra all day long, like the beating of my heart. What about me? What about me? What about me? What about me? What about me? What about me? What about…? When I take a shower, I think, what about me? I hope this shower makes me feel happy. I hope this kiss makes me feel happy. I hope this lunch makes me happy. I hope these clothes make me feel happy. I hope this donut, this cup of coffee, this new affair, this new job. What about me? What about me? What about me? What about me? What about me? What about me? What about me? What about me? This new spiritual practice. This new movie, this new CD. Oh, this new CD will make you happy, happy, happy, happy, will make me happy. What about? What about me? That’s my first thought every morning. What about me? What happens to me? What about me? It’s my the last thought every night. Has this gotten me anymore love, anymore joy? This new city, this new country, this new planet, this new universe makes me happy. You know what? None of it will make you happy unless you do one simple thing. Change ME for YOU. Change ME for YOU. Let’s wake up in the morning and try something wild. Just break up the monotony and say, "May you be happy. May you be happy. May you be happy". What about? What about you? That’s my first thought every morning. What about you? What happens to you? What about you? It’s the last thought every night. This has given me so much more love, so much more joy. When I give you a big fat kiss, take a shower, make my bed, when I dance, may it make you happy. When I give you the remote control. What about? May it make you happy. When I sit on a park bench by myself. When I feel the sun and the breeze. What about? May it make you happy. What about? When I just look at you. What about? Stare into your eyes. What about? May it make you happy. What about? What about? And you know what? When you're happy I'm happy. That's the formula. First you, then me. That's all happiness is. It's just the heart being free.
