Barenaked Ladies – The New Sad lyrics

Everybody knows that happy is the new sad
So I am going to go and imitate my old dad
And never crack a smile again
Everybody knows that as we all get older
The will is first to go, and so upon my shoulder
The bluebird shall not sing again

Everybody knows that as our hair gets greyer
We strike a bended pose and say a little prayer
To never feel this way again
Everybody knows it's never getting better
Everything must go, and you will have to let her
And never see her face again

Everybody's youth is only what they make it
We're longer in the toot, so why do people fake it?
We'll never get it back again

I know it hurts; no one wants to die

Goodbye, goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye
