about

In Happy As Can Be, 11 Acorn Lane further develop their musical philosophy of combining the neo with the retro, while continuing their trademark upbeat and uplifting sound (Comin' Home Baby, Yes, My Superstar).

With a loving smile, tribute is made to one of their major influences, Henry Mancini (Two Little Dreamers, Grandmother's Little Secret, Spend My Time With You).

At the end of a happy journey, the album finishes with a return to the Eastern European brothel creeping sound (The Return Of The Devious Thought).

This record continues to showcase 11 Acorn Lane's uncanny ability to maintain the balance between accomplished craftsmanship and tongue-in-cheek quirkiness (Happy As Can Be, The Party, Too Hot).

Track Name: Happy As Can Be
I'm happy as can be
So happy being me
Everything is going my way
So listen to me say
I'm happy as can be

The sun is shining in the sky
I eat a piece of apple pie
Take my hand and walk with me
There's so much beauty here to see
Shining shining
So inviting
All the world
Is one big smile

I'm happy as can be
So happy being me
Everything is going my way
So listen to me say
I'm happy as can be

(instrumental)

I'm happy as can be
Happy being me
Everything is going my way

And hope you'll sing with me
We're happy as can be

Track Name: Too Hot
I've got a crush
For cheeks that blush
I've got a thing
For hips that swing

With your hands on your drink
You're making me think
Don't be so nice
Don't ask me twice

Too Hot (repeat)

You looked at me
Liked what you see
Just get a taste
Got no time to waste

You know what you want
So let me be blunt
Let yourself go
Let's put on a show

Too Hot...
