The only happy thing
About how sad I've been
Is how much weight I've lost
I'm almost thin.
And that truly is a very happy thing
It makes me so happy, I could almost sing
So happy, that if I could only bring
This happiness to you, I would indeed
But only if I could bring it to you
Without the sadness too.
