Happy You Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I belong, a long way from here
I put on a poncho and played for mosquitoes
And drank 'till I was thirsty again
We went searching, through thrift store jungles
Verse 2
Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo
And Benny Goodman's cursive pen
Well, okay, I made this up
I promise you I'd never give up
Verse 3
If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad?
Verse 4
Get down, real low down
You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train
Well, who hasn't been there before?
Verse 5
I come 'round, around the hard way
Bring you comics in bed
Scrape the mold off the bread
And serve you french toast again
Okay, I still get stoned
I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home
Verse 6
If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad?
Verse 7
If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad?
Verse 8
We've been far, far away from here
I put on a poncho and played for mosquitoes
And everywhere in between
Well, okay, we get along
So what if right now, everything's wrong?
Verse 9
If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad?
Verse 10
If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad?
