Be Happy, otherwise known in studio format as Sameyach, was the Israeli entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2000. It was performed by PingPong and despite the bad result, Israel was allowed to compete in the 2001 contest.

Lyrics

Kol hayom ani yoshevet bakibuts
Bayad sigar veze margish li ktsat chamuts
Kol hazman rak dika'on veshi'amum
Im lo egmor, ze yigamer mamash bebum

Oh... sameach
Oh... sameach
Oh... oh... sameach
Oh... oh... sameach

Kol hayom batelevizia milchamot
Ube'Ostralia shuv hitchilu shitfonot
Hine ba hadika'on shel yom rishon
Ani rotsa, ani rotsa melafefon

Oh... sameach
Oh... sameach
Oh... oh... sameach
Oh... oh... sameach

Veyesh li achshav chaver chadash miDamesek
Khshe'ani atsuva, hu sholeach li vered adom
Ze lo chochma le'ehov rak ksheyesh lecha cheshek
Ani rotsa la'asot et ze ito kol hayom

Oh... sameach
Oh... sameach
Oh... oh... sameach

All day long I sit in the kibbutz
In my hand a cigar and it feels a little sour
All the time only depression and boredom
If I don't come, it will end with a bang

Oh... happy
Oh... happy
Oh... happy
Oh... happy

All day long wars on television
And in Australia there are floods again
Here comes the Sunday depression
I want, I want a cucumber

And now I have a new boyfriend from Damascus
When I'm sad, he sends me a red rose
It's not smart to love only when you feel like it
I want to do it with him all day long

Oh... happy
Oh... happy
Oh... happy

Trivia

  • Israeli and Syrian flags caused controversy when they were waved on stage.
