"Glad To be Unhappy" as written by Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers....
Look at yourself, if you had a 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 and 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

    General CommentLiterally made an account just to express my horror that there are no comments for this song! In the Wee Small Hours is such a brilliant album, and I've always connected with the sentiment of this particular song all too well. Gorgeous song.
