Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy by Barbra Streisand/Judy Garland is a mash-up featured in Duets, the fourth episode of Season Two. It is sung by Kurt and Rachel.
Rachel notices that Kurt has been feeling lonely and offers to sing the duet with him "for fun" claiming that they are more alike than they had originally thought. They wear outfits in the same style that Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand wore. This is the last scene and song of this episode.
It is a counterpoint duet of Judy Garland'sGet Happy from the film Summer Stock and Barbra Streisand's version of Happy Days Are Here Again. Barbra Streisand re-recorded the song Happy Days Are Here Again in January 1963 for her solo album debut The Barbra Streisand Album. Streisand sang this song on The Judy Garland Show with Garland's counter-melody of Get Happy. (Garland suggested the arrangement to her band leader Mel Tormé.) This live performance was included on the 2002 Streisand compilation album Duets.
Forget your troubles. (Happy days)
Come on get happy. (Are here again)
You better chase all your cares away. (The skies above are clear again)
Shout hallelujah. (So let's sing a song)
Come on get happy. (Of cheer again)
Get ready for the judgement day. (Happy days are here again)
The sun is shining. Come on get happy. (Shout it now)
The lord is waiting to take your hand. (There is no one who can doubt it now)
Shout hallelujah. (So lets tell the world)
And just get happy. (About it now)
We are going to the promise land. (Happy days are here again)
We're heading across the river, soon your cares will all be gone. (There'll be no more from now on)
Kurt and Rachel:
From now on!
Forget your troubles. (Oh, happy days)
And just get happy. (Are here again)
You better chase all your blues away. (The skies above are clear again)
Shout Hallelujah. (So lets sing a song)
And just get happy. (Of cheer again)
