Also known as the "happy" song, this insipid little tune is best sung at a high-pitched, cheerful voice in some sort of camp gathering or elementary school setting.
The exact origns of the tune still elude me (and I think are likely to continue doing so), but a quick check with my parents tells me it was ancient when they were in kindergarten, so it's probably quite aged.
The song is also reprinted in various locations, most of the time under the above title, but sometimes simply under If You're Happy And You Know It.
