Community- Abed's Dance

In the study groups first year at Greendale together Britta and Troy were secretly taking dance classes. Once their friends found out everyone was invited to a dance recital they were both participating in. After her performance, Abed told Britta he would like to tap dance like her but seemingly lost interest when she told him he should take classes. After everyone left the auditorium, Abed started tap dancing skillfully on stage as the song Merry Happy played in the background. It was first heard in the Season One episode "Interpretive Dance".

Kate Nash - Merry Happy - Live in Paradiso


Watching me like you never watch no one
Don't tell me that you didn't try and check out my bum
Cause I know that you did
Cause your friend told me that you liked it

Gave me those pearls and I thought they were ugly
Though you try to tell me that you never loved me
I know that you did
'Cause you said it and you wrote it down

Dancing at discos
Eating cheese on toast
Yeah you make me merry make me very very happy
But you obviously, you didn't want to stick around

Dancing at discos
Eating cheese on toast
Yeah you make me merry make me very very happy
But you obviously, you didn't want to stick around

So I learnt from you
Do do do da do do do do do da do do do do do da do

Do do do da do do do do do da do do do do do da do

I can be alone, yeah
I can watch a sunset on my own
I can be alone, yeah
I can watch a sunset on my own
I can be alone
I can watch a sunset on my own

I can be alone, yeah
I can watch a sunset on my own
I can be alone, yeah
I can watch a sunset on my own
I can be alone
I can watch a sunset on my own

Sitting in restaurants
Thought we were so grown up
But I know now that we were not the people
That we turned out to be

Chatting on the phone
Can't take back those hours
But I won't regret
'Cause you can grow flowers
From where dirt used to be

Dancing at discos
Eating cheese on toast
Yeah you make me merry make me very very happy
But you obviously, you didn't want to stick around

TriviaEdit

Song historyEdit

Merry Happy is the fifth single from British singer-songwriter Kate Nash's album, "Made of Bricks". In an attempt to boost sales of the single in England, a special promotion was held where each copy was printed with a number from 1 to 1000. The fan who bought a selected number would win the chance to have Kate Nash personalize the album for them. Despite the extra efforts at promoting the song it was not commercially successful in the UK Singles Charts peaking at #116. It enjoyed better success internationally, particularly in the United States and Canada. Overseas the song charted on the Bubbling Under chart at #12 while concurrently reaching #97 on the Pop 100.
