Happy Blues

 

 

“Happy Blues”

i went to work today

but they fired me

they said i couldn’t stay

that they were tired of me

and so i went on home

but my wife was gone

she took my kitchen sink

she took my funny bone

but it occurred to me

that i had nothing to lose

i got the happy blues

i got the happy blues

i went and lost it all

til i had nothing to lose

i got the happy blues

i got the happy blues

 

I used the ATM

But I was out of dough

I tried to start my car

but it wouldn’t go

i went to pay my bills

and got a paper cut

i went to take my pills

they didn’t do enough

but that don’t mean nothing

to a fella whose

got the happy blues

i got the happy blues

i went and lost it all

till i had nothing to lose

i got the happy blues

i got the happy blues

 

i tried to get real sad

i tried to mope it up

i tried to feel depressed

i tried a-givin’ up

i thought of pain and death

i thought of suicide

i tried to stay at home

i tried to run and hide

but it was all in vain

i found it aint no use

i got the happy blues

i got the happy blues

i’d gone and lost it all

till i had nothing to lose

i got the happy blues

i got the happy blues

and no the irony’s

not lost on me

i got the happy blues

i got the happy blues

i got the happy blues

i got the happy blues
