Inside a darkened room
Come face to face with gloom
More sorrow on the way
Ruining another day
It doesn’t get you anywhere
To wallow in your own despair
Cause happiness is the best revenge

My father punched the clock
Raised his kids like another job
Did well financially
But so remote emotionally
Let it go, it’s so far gone
Malignant if it lingers on
Cause happiness is the best revenge

You’re a victim you complain
You won first prize for pain
You wave your trophy high
At everyone who passes by

Some people can’t bear to see
You living happily
Had you guilt-tripped for years
So much invested in those tears
I know my life would be so nice
If I could follow my own advice
Cause happiness is the best revenge
