I'm Not Sad is a song I wrote to the tune of Sesame Street's Sad Sad Sad and is about how people can mistake you for sad by your expression.
Hey! What's the matter? Is there anything I can do?
I'm not sad.
Does something hurt? Has someone been mean to you?
I am not sad.
Won't you confide in me? It might clean the air. Sometimes it helps just to know somebody cares. I'll lend an ear. There's nothing to fear. I've felt the same way, too. Are you all right? Is there anything I can do?
I am not sad. I'm just daydreaming. Thinking about the world.
Nothing did. I am quite happy, really.
I am just thinking. I often stare into space. Don't judge me by the expression on my face. So do not shout, there's really no doubt. I don't need help today.
Are you alright?
As I told someone else, I'm OK.
I've been sad before. But this time I'm not.
Sometimes you need cheering up, sometimes you don't.
So I'm not sad. I'm thoughtful and glad. There isn't much else to say. I don't need your help today.
