LyricsEdit

I'm Sad Because I'm Happy 3

Oh there are days, when skies are gray
& everything goes wrong
When I start yelling, "Go away!"
& people say, "So long!"
When everythings in disarray
Im right where I belong
When funs away on holiday
This GROUCH must sing this song

Im sad because Im happy
& Im happy 'cause Im mad
& Im mad cause it sounds sappy
To be happy when youre sad

Yes there are days when skies are gray
& all the world looks YUCKY
When clouds & rain won't go away
The road Im on turns mucky
My feet splash in the mud & hey,
My toes get wet & gucky
Yes everything just goes my way
I feel so gosh-darn lucky!

(The GROUCH Chorale joins in.)

Im sad (Hes sad) because Im happy (Hes happy)
& Im happy (hes happy) cause Im mad (Hes mad)
& Im mad (Hes mad) cause it sounds sappy
To be happy when you're sad

OSCAR: Everybody sing!

(Sung in grand style)

Im sad (Hes sad) because Im happy (He's happy)
& Im happy (he's happy) 'cause Im mad (He's mad)
& Im mad (Hes mad) cause it sounds sappy
To be happy when you're sad

(spoken, with music still playing)

OSCAR: Hey! Ah, I wish every day was like this!
GRUNDGETTA: Ah, ME too, OSKIE!
OSCAR: Well, if wishes were GARBAGE trucks, GROUCHES would ride!
GRUNDGETTA: So true, so true!
OSCAR: Let's just enjoy the moment. Yeah.
GRUNDGETTA: Yeah.
