​So Damn Happy

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album Little Ship (1997) and on the live album So Damn Happy (live) (2003).

The sad thing is I'm so damn happy
Who'd blame her if she were to slap me?
The sun should not shine when there's rain
I should be in a lot more pain
At least I should feel slightly crappy
But the sad thing is I'm so damn happy

And the worst thing is it's so much better
And that admission would upset her
But it's true and it's beyond belief
What I feel is sheer relief
I may regret the day I met her
And the worst thing is it's so much better

It's comic that it's all so tragic
It's that humdrum novel 'Old Black Magic'
Let's have a laugh after we cry
Let's hope we live before we die
The silly clowns, red noses running
And it's tragic that it's all so funny

It's crucial that it doesn't matter
Vows of love are idle chatter
To feel this good has to be bad
I'm so damn happy that it's sad!
Dear listener, would you like to slap me?
And the sad thing is I'm so damn happy
Yes the sad thing is I'm so damn happy
