So much for my sad song

Today’s Bellen! comic reminded me of Chris Rice’s So Much For My Sad Song:

The first thought through my sleepy head when I fell out of my bed is, “I hope the sky is grey; I’m gonna write a sad song today.” So I make up my mind, slip on my shoes. I’m gonna pick up a paper and read the news ’cause I’m sure to find not enough blue to write my sad song.

But when I open the door and the sun spills through it takes away my breath and I think of you and the only blues to hit my eyes are those beautiful blues in the clear blue sky.

So much for my sad song. So much for my sorry attitude. Let’s make this a love song instead ’cause I’m so in love with you. Come on let’s go out and play; save the sad song for another day. No time for tears, I’m wearing a smile. So much for my sad song

So I pick up the news like I said I would. Dropped my jaw right where I stood ’cause the headline reads, “All the news is good because love is on the way.” And love floods the world right before my eyes. Everybody is dancing and slapping high-fives and such beautiful music fills the skies and we all sing along.

And now I snap out of my daydream and I can’t believe how real it seems but I keep on dancing anyway ’cause it’s turning out to be a marvellous day.

Sometimes I measure my day by how many things go my way and when things go wrong I usually get mad but this time I’m glad that my song didn’t turn out sad.
