Help!!! Has anyone ever heard a song with the lyrics:Happiness runs in a circular motion - Love is a little boat upon the sea - Everybody is a part of everything anyway - You can be happy if you let yourself be!!

Hi Missy

Thats a Donovan song, Its was done, and done beautifully, by Donovan and Jennifer Warnes as an accapella tune on the Smother's Brothers Show once when there was a musicians strike on.

It may be on the "Gift From a Flower to A Garden " album.

It is indeed a Donovan song, he did it live a lot. It's not on "Gift" although it would have fitted in there just fine. I don't think it was ever released in the UK, but was on a USA only album, ?"Barabagagel." His releases on Epic in the States were quite different, track wise, from the UK release. The only cover version I can think of was by Bridget St John, can't remember whch album though.
Don's album was released a few years ago as a 4CD box set with cardboard sleeves, I don't know about individual releases, and some of Bridget's Dandelion label stuff was released on CD. I can give you more info, confirm album titles and No.s when I get home. Hope this helps.
love, john.
