We're the happiest squiffle-group players in town


We're the happi - est, hippi - est, snappi - est, nifti - est,

squiffle-group players in town.

The clever - est, never rest, busi - est, friendli - est

squiffle-group players around.


Come and play with us every time,

You can play and make it chime. 

We're the happi - est, hippi - est, snappi - est, nifti - est,

squiffle-group players sublime.


When you become one of the clan 

you discover there's a whole new game.

The people you meet, and the fun you have,      

Life won’t be the same.


We're the happi - est, hippi - est, snappi - est, nifti - est,

squiffle-group players  in town.

The clever - est, never rest, busi - est, friendli - est

squiffle-group players around.
