Makes Me Happy is a song by Drake Bell; written by him, C. J. Abraham, and Michael Corcoran, for his 2007 album "It's Only Time". It appears in the TV movie Drake & Josh: Really Big Shrimp as the song Drake Parker becomes famous and gets a record deal for, however the version is slightly different and more abridged than the original song. This is the third Drake Bell song to be used in the show, the first being "I Found a Way", which is the theme song for the show and the second is "Down We Fall" from Number 1 Fan. The new version of the song also appears on Drake's 2014 album, "Ready Steady Go".

In the Show[]

During Really Big Shrimp, Drake performs the song for Alan Krim, the VP of Spin City Records. He loves the song and Drake is then offered a record deal. However, the situation is exacerbated when they play an auto tuned up version of the song. They reveal that Josh signed a contract without reading it. Drake, upset that his dreams are dashed, fires Josh. Josh tries to compensate by switching the CDs with the Daka representative. Daka is the shoe company that will play the song for their commercial in the Super Bowl. Drake has a change of heart because the commercial plays the original version and the two celebrate. They then meet with Nick Mateo, the president of Spin City, who tells them that the song got very popular and then tells Drake that he is about to get a number one hit. Nick found out about Alan's plot and then fires him. In the end, Drake sings his song to celebrate not only his song but Helen's marriage.

Lyrics: "Makes Me Happy(Short edition)"

Well hello let's go
Everybody must know
Love's in my heart like a bomb
It's blowing a song inside I'm singing
Sunshine that your bringing now
And it makes me happy

Listen to the radio playing back in stereo
Sounds like my favorite song
I'm humming along
My head is ringing

And I just can't stop singing now
'Cause it makes me happy
It makes me happy
You're everything I need

Handed from above
I can't get enough of your love
'Cause it makes me happy
It makes me happy

Living in a day-dream
I'll show you what it all means
Spending some more time in the sun
Let's get up and run it's just beginning

I just can't stop singing now
'Cause it makes me happy
Like a fantasy that you never find
Right in front of me all the time
And it makes me happy

I want it all but not too much
I wanna feel the way you touch me
I'm the kind of guy who's always there to come and find you
Save the rainy days for another time
I'm just here to say read between the lines
I'm so glad that your mine

'Cause you make me happy
You make me wanna sing
