Lyrics


I belong, a long way from here

I put on a poncho, played for mosquitos,

And drank 'til I was thirsty again

We went searching through thrift store jungles

Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo

And Benny Goodman's corset and pen


Well, alright, I made this up

I promised you I'd never give up


If it makes you happy

It can't be that bad

If it makes you happy

Then why the hell are you so sad?


You get down, real low down

You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train

Who hasn't been there before?

I come round, around the hard way

Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off the bread

And serve you french toast again


Well alright Tokyo, I still get stoned

But I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home


If it makes you happy

It can't be that bad

If it makes you happy

Then why the hell are you so sad


We've been far, far away from here

We put on a poncho, played for mosquitos

And everywhere in between

Well alright we get along

So what if right now everything's wrong?


If it makes you happy

He can't be that bad

If it makes you happy

Then why the hell are you so sad?


If it makes you happy

He can't be that bad

If it makes you happy

Then why the hell are you so sad?
