The story on the song "JOY TO THE WORLD" was that Hoyt Axton wanted his record producers to record a melody he'd written. They said, "Make up some lyrics." They are non-sensical lyrics but one singer in Three Dog Night thought the recording of the song would help recreate the band's early years of happy, non-stressful times. All the band sang on it. Turned out to be a hit for them... a number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1971.
