glad to be unhappy lyrics – mamas & the papas

fools rush in, so here i am
awfully glad to be unhappy.
i can’t win, but here i am
more than glad to be unhappy.

unrequited love’s a bore, yeah,
and i’ve got it pretty bad.
but for someone you adore,
it’s a pleasure to be sad.

like a straying baby lamb
with no mama and no papa,
i’m so unhappy, yeah.

unrequited love’s a bore, yeah,
and i’ve got it pretty bad.
but for someone you adore,
it’s a pleasure to be sad.

like a straying baby lamb
with no mama and no papa,
i’m so unhappy, yeah…

but oh so glad
