"Happy You" was the Lithuanian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2002, performed in English (the first occasion on which the Lithuanian entry had not featured a local language) by Aivaras.

The song is a ballad, with Aivaras telling his lover that he wants to show them the simple pleasures of life, including "watching the sunrise". He explains to them that his happiness is derived from theirs, "Happy I 'cause happy you".

The song was performed twenty-fourth on the night (following Latvia's Marie N with "I Wanna"). At the close of voting, it had received 12 points, placing 23rd in a field of 24.

Aivaras was originally not intended to perform for Lithuania at the Contest, however the intended entry by B'Avarija was disqualified for having been previously released. In fact, many of the Lithuanian national final entries had already been released, rendering them ineligible under Contest rules [1].

Due to Lithuania's poor record, they were ineligible to participate at the 2003 contest, but returned to the fold the next year. Thus, the song was succeeded as Lithuanian representative by Linas & Simona at the 2004 contest with "What's Happened To Your Love?".
