I'm Sad Because I'm Happy is a Sesame Street song by Oscar the Grouch.
Oh, there are days when skies are grey and everything goes wrong.
When I start yelling "Go away!" and people say "So long".
When everything's in disarray, I'm right where I belong.
When fun's away on holiday, this grouch must sing this song.
I'm sad because I'm happy
And I'm happy 'cause I'm mad
And I'm mad 'cause it sounds sappy
to be happy when you're sad.
Yes, there are days when skies are grey and all the world looks yucky.
When clouds and rain won't go away, the road I'm on turns mucky.
My feet splash in the mud and, hey, my toes get wet and gucky.
Yes, everything just goes my way. I feel so gosh-darn lucky.
I'm sad (he's sad)
Because I'm happy (he's happy)
And I'm happy (he's happy)
'Cause I'm mad (he's mad)
And I'm mad (he's mad)
'Cause it sounds sappy to be happy when you're sad.
