Happy Days Theme Song

You’d probably be surprised to know that “Happy Days,” the song, was not always used for Happy Days, the show. In its first season, “Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley & His Comets was used for the opening credits. However, also in season one, “Happy Days” was used as the closing theme—used was a version performed by Jimmy Haas on lead vocals.

From season two to season ten, they used Pratt & McClain’s version of “Happy Days” in the opening credits.

For the 11th and final season, a version featuring Bobby Arvon on lead vocals was used.

Happy Days lyrics

Sunday, Monday, Happy Days. Tuesday, Wednesday, Happy Days.
Thursday, Friday, Happy Days. The Weekend comes, my cycle hums,
Ready to race to you.

These days are ours. Happy and free. (Oh Happy Days)
These days are ours. Share them with me. (Oh Baby)

Goodbye gray skies, Hello Blue, ’cause nothing can hold me when I hold you.
Feels so right, it can’t be wrong. Rockin’ and rollin’ all week long.

(Instrumental break)

Sunday, Monday, Happy Days. Tuesday, Wednesday, Happy Days.
Thursday, Friday, Happy Days. Saturday, what a day, groovin’ all week with you.

These days are ours. Share them with me. (oh Happy Days)
These days are ours. Happy and free. (oh Baby)
These Happy Days are yours and mine.
These Happy Days are yours and mine, Happy Days.
