Happy Town

This song is by Jill Sobule and appears on the album Happy Town (1997).

I wake up every morning to the sound of birds
It's really not birds it's my neighbor's TV
She watches talk shows all day long
I used to hate her but now we get along

I used to sit under a gloomy cloud of gray
And now the sun is shining and it won't go away

I used to go up
I used to go down
Now I'm just even here in Happy Town
Happy Town

My boyfriend Bob he said I made him miserable
But we stayed together 'cause the sex was really good
And then he packed his bags with me to Happy Town
We don't fuck anymore, but we can really snuggle down

I used to sit under a gloomy cloud of gray
And now the sun is out and my whole world is beige

I used to go up
I used to go down
Now I'm just even here in Happy Town
I don't get excited
But nor do I frown
The lawn is always neat in Happy Town
Happy Town
Happy Town

To get to Happy Town you can call your doctor
You can unscrew the child-proof bottle cap
Pour yourself a glass of water

I used to sit under a gloomy cloud of gray
And now the sun is shining and it won't go away

I used to go up
I used to go down
Now I'm just even here in Happy Town
I don't get excited
Nor do I frown
The lawn is always neat in Happy Town
Happy Town
Happy Town

I used to go up
I used to go down
Now I'm just even here in Happy Town
I don't get excited
But nor do I frown
Life is just OK in Happy Town
Happy Town
Happy Tow
