BackgroundEdit

The lyrics tell everyone that being happy is their duty, and that the Happiness and Peace of Mind committee will support them. 'Its your duty!' is repeated throughout the song. Miku appears to be the spokesperson for the Committee, forcing their citizens to pretend to smile and be happy. Anyone who fails to comply is executed, and you can hear roaring brainwashed crowds behind her. The song's tone changes dramatically from beginning to the end to sing the truth of how people feel.

The lyrics mention 'Undine/Ondine', a creature that is a water elemental/water nymph of Greek and German legend. In the myths they sing with beautiful voices, and seek to marry a human to gain a soul. However in some stories those who are unfaithful to an undine are cursed with death. This appears to have been the fate of the knight in the song. Miku may represent an Ondine.

A sequel, Hop! Step! Sokushi! Shiawase Dance Deathtrap was made. It has surpassed over 700,000 views on Niconico and 1,000,000 views on YouTube.

Written by an unknown artist, this version of the lyrics were used in the English version of Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- F 2nd.

Why is it that everyone's so happy?
They want to hear about and get to know the world
They listen closely at the park by the water
This is so exciting, isn't it, Ondine?

Okay then!
All right everyone! I'm going to tell you
The things you've been dying to know, the thing's you're not sure about
I'm going to tell you everything!

Well, the reason everyone's happy is because it's your duty
Are you happy? It's your duty! Are you fulfilling it?
We here at the Happiness and Peace of Mind Committee hope for and support the happiness of all

Happiness is your duty
Happiness is your duty
Happiness is your duty
Are you happy? It's your duty!

Happiness is your duty
Happiness is your duty
Happiness is your duty
Are you happy? It's your duty!

So be at peace, and fulfill your duty!
Your happiness is our happiness

Are you happy? It's your duty! Are you fulfilling it?
If you're not happy, there's…

Hanging, beheading, firing squad, boiling, drowning, electrocution,
Immolation, live burial, lethal injection, stoning, sawing, crucifixion,
Take your pick! ♪

Okay then!
All right everyone, aren't you all just brimming with happiness!
Not a hint of anxiety or discontent, right?
Scary, so scary,
We're so happy it's scary!

Happiness is your duty
Happiness is your duty
Happiness is your duty
Are you happy? It's your duty!

Happiness is your duty
Happiness is your duty
Happiness is your duty
Are you happy? It's your duty!

It's your duty! It's your duty! It's your duty! Happiness is your duty!
It's your duty! It's your duty! It's your duty!

If you're not happy…you're dead.
