The music video HAPPY PEOPLE is partly filmed in Kenya and partly in Germany. The lyrics are in German, Swahili and English. We want to show the contrast as well as the connectivity between two beautiful countries and cultures.
The video is part of the social media project "Change We Need" (change-we-need.com) and the "Music For Life" association (marysummer.com/home/music-for-life-e-v).

Director, Cinematographer & Editor: Tim Drabandt

Lyrics in English:

Verse 1
There are days where everything seems to be hopeless.
All the things you have to do are getting in over your head.
But before you are drowning in troubles,
Wait a second, everything is not even half as bad.
Because it depends on how you see it.
And when you just enjoy your life,
everything is positiv, everything is positiv.

Chorus
We should be happy, happy people,
Just don't worry, dont think about it.
We should be happy, happy people,
What you can't change try to understand.

Verse 2
Sometimes when I wake up in the morning
I feel I don't have energy,
There is no food on the table.
The clothes are the same old ones,
But just give me happiness,
But just give me happiness.

Chorus
We should be happy, happy people,
Just don't worry, dont think about it.
We should be happy, happy people,
What you can't change try to understand.
