Barbra Streisand – Glad To Be Unhappy lyrics

Look at yourself...
If you had sense of humor
You would laugh to beat the band...
Look at yourself
Do you still believe the rumor
That romance is simply grand?
Since you took it right on the chin
You have lost that bright toothpaste grin
My mental state is all a-jumble
I sit around in sadly mumble
Fools rush in, so here I am!
Very glad to be unhappy
I can't win, but here I am
More than glad to be unhappy
Unrequited love's a bore and I've got it pretty bad
But for someone you adore
It's a pleasure to be sad...
Like a straying baby lamb
With no mammy and no pappy
I'm so unhappy
But, oh, so glad!
