Why Be Depressed (When You Could Be Happy All the Time)

from by School for Robots

/

about

A little country ditty and bit of a self therapy mantra that helps me get out of the everpresent funk with the help of some music and friends.

First song recorded to the tape machine, first attempt at recording and mixing in analog. Check back here for a new song each century or so.

-Curtis

lyrics

Why be depressed when you could be happy all the time
If I had to guess, it's not quite so bad in a normal human mind
I must confess I'm a body momentarily in time
So why be depressed when you could be happy

Oh we could be happy now
But I'm mean, ugly and nasty
Oh, we'll make it through somehow
Until the end of our days

So why be depressed when you could be happy all the time
We're not meant to be livin' on our own
We're not meant to die all alone

Oh we could be happy now
But I'm mean, ugly and nasty
Oh, we'll make it through somehow
Until the end of our days

Why be depressed when you could be happy all the time
If I had to guess, it's not quite so bad in a normal human mind
I must confess I'm a body momentarily in time
So why be depressed when you could be happy
