Print Lyrics


I've been long, a long way from here --
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitoes,
And drank 'til I was thirsty again.
We went searching through thrift store jungles --
Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo,
And Benny Goodman's corset and fan.

Well okay, I made this up.
I promised you I'd never give up.

If it makes you happy,
It can't be that bad.
If it makes you happy,
Then why the hell are you so sad?

You get down, real low down --
You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train;
Well who hasn't been there before?
I come 'round, around the hard way --
Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off the bread,
And serve you French toast again.

Well okay, I still get stoned.
I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home.

If it makes you happy,
It can't be that bad.
If it makes you happy,
Then why the hell are you so sad?

If it makes you happy,
It can't be that bad.
If it makes you happy,
Then why the hell are you so sad?

[Instrumental break]

We've been far, far away from here --
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitoes,
And everywhere in between.

Well okay, we get along.
So what if right now everything's wrong?

If it makes you happy,
It can't be that bad.
If it makes you happy,
Then why the hell are you so sad?

If it makes you happy,
It can't be that bad.
If it makes you happy,
Then why the hell are you so sad?

[Instrumental break]
(Ohh...)
