Gilbert O'sullivan – It's So Easy To Be Sad lyrics

See the statues in the square
They almost look alive
It's amazing after all these years
How they've survived
Two young children gazing at them
Faces so forlorn
One is saying to the other
I wonder how they're born

It's funny how we always tend
To look back on our past
As if they were the only good times
That we're ever going to have

See the river heading outwards
Watch the ships sail in
Notice how despite their size
They very rarely sink

Tell the man who's watching with you
His shoelace is undone
When he looks pretend you didn't notice
You were wrong

And anytime there's trouble up ahead
Don't get into a state
Where you wish you were dead
Just take your time and do
What you believe is right
It could turn out to be
A blessing in disguise-disguise-

It's funny how we always tend
To overlook the bad
Doesn't anybody know that
It's so easy to be sad

Talk about doing what you do best
Seems to me the more you do
The less you get
All told I would say that it was pretty grim
Although on the other hand
I've got a ring

Mass unemployment's at an all time best
Why not quit your job and take a well earned rest
Grow old on the dole
That's the life I need
Everybody's doing it so why not me
