Living well with dementia: Happy by Pharrell Williams

My close friend and colleague, Kate Swaffer, wrote an article this morning in Australia on being diagnosed with dementia vs ‘suffering’.

I strongly recommend it to you here.

This was an exchange of ours this morning on Facebook.

This topic has always caused heated exchanges for all of us.

I hope you can bear with us, as none of us mean any offence in this.

I think part of the issue is that, further to ‘once you’ve met one person with dementia, you’ve met one person with dementia’, our different views of that person with dementia can vary quite widely too.

Our discussions of ‘Living well with dementia‘ continue..

“Happy”

[Verse 1:]
It might seem crazy what I’m about to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way[Chorus:]
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do[Verse 2:]
Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, and don’t hold it back, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine, yeah,
No offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why

[Chorus]

Hey, come on

[Bridge:]
(happy)
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
My level’s too high
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
I said (let me tell you now)
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
My level’s too high
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
I said

[Chorus 2x]

Hey, come on

(happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down… my level’s too high…
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)

[Chorus 2x]

Come on
