happy town lyrics – jill sobule

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 s*x was really good
and then he packed his bags with me to happy town
we don’t f*ck 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 gl*ss 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
