"The Happy Goth" as written by and Neil Hannon....
"The lonely road you choose to travel on, it must seem awfully long.
Innocence all gone,
It must be wrong to hide your lovely face away.
That music you play, I'm not saying it's bad, it just seems terribly sad.
Is everything all right?
I'd like to think you'd tell me if something was wrong."

Well her clothes are blacker than the blackest cloth
And her face is whiter than the snows of Hoth.
She wears Dr. Martens and a heavy cross,
But on the inside she's a happy goth.

"Don't worry Mum, don't worry Dad.
The hours that I spend alone are the happiest I've ever had."

That's what she'd say if she ever spoke to you,
But it's something she can never do.
Cause it's only by herself that she'll find out
What makes her different from the rest.

Well her clothes are blacker than the blackest cloth
And her face is whiter than the snows of Hoth.
She wears Dr. Martens and a heavy cross,
But on the inside she's a happy goth.

    General CommentI love this song. Happy and kind of sad at the same time.

    "Don't worry Mum, don't worry Dad.
    The hours that I spend alone are the happiest I've ever had"

    I've never been a goth.. But i think there is probably a time in most people's life when that is true.

    General CommentThis is it! This is what it means to be a goth.

    Goth isn't about being depressed. After all, the best goths I know aren't depressed all the time. Goth is a subculture where being sad is okay and embraced, but that doesn't mean that it is the definition of the subculture.

    After all, what's the point of being in a subculture if it isn't something you love?
