I know you
You're trying to do all you can for me
I appreciate your help
But it's best just to leave me be
There's many things that I have done
And I'm sorry for them now
So darlin' please don't you comfort me
I'll sort it out somehow

So sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Please, don't you make me blue
Sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Girl, I can do without you
Don't go breaking my heart
It would tear me apart
'Cause then I'd be finished for good
So sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Please, don't you make me blue

I don't want you to think I'm mean
Refusing all your help
The time has come, but my need is none
And I want to be alone with myself
There's many things that I have done
And I'm sorry for them now
So darlin' please don't you comfort me
I'll sort it out somehow

So sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Please, don't you make me blue
Sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Girl, I can do without you
Don't go breaking my heart
It would tear me apart
'Cause then I'd be finished for good
Sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Please, don't you make me blue

Sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Girl, please don't make me blue
Sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Girl, I can do without you
Sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Girl, don't you make me blue
Sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies

    General CommentI always turn this song on when I'm upset.
    It explains what music means to me, sharing my pain, my joy, and my contentment.

    General CommentThe kick inside is in the line that finally gets to you
    And it feels so good to hurt so bad
    And suffer just enough to sing the blues

    *Those lines describe when you are feeling what a sad song is describing so perfectly.

    General Commentactually I can't help but remember way back when Sassoon Jeans (Ooh La La Sassoon) (who went on to be sued by Vidal Sassoon and had to drop an 'o' from their name to Sasson used this song for their ad somehwere in the late 70's or early 80's. It was like "put em on, put em on put on them Sassons"

    anyone else old enough to remember that?

    General CommentThis one of the few songs in the world that requires no explanation. I sometimes get the impression it might have been written with a bit of sarcasm.

    However, I take it at face value. This song is what music is supposed to be about - not so much the sadness, but the emotional impact music has on us.
