This is called: An Anatomy of Melancholy.

If you're filled with doubt or you're feeling sort of lonely
If you've lost your way or your My Little Pony
If you feel unsure and you can't find the light
If you're filled with indecision in the middle of the night
If your cat's left home or your dog's just died
If you've bought a new car but you never learned to drive
If you're shot by a robber while standing in the bank
Or your mother walks in while you're having a worry
Then spare a tiny thought for the people that you meet
On the pavements by the side of the road or the street
Who scowl and who frown if you throw them a greet-
Ing

Because
Some of them are sad 'cause they can't do this
And some of them are sad 'cause they can't do that
Some of them are sad 'cause they never had a kiss
And some of them are sad 'cause they never had a cat
Some of them are sad 'cause they're stuck up a steeple
And some of them are sad 'cause they don't like people
Some of them are sad
Yes some of them are sad
Some of them are Portuguese
But most of them are sad

If
You find you're simply looking for an exit to the maze
And you've been trying turnings for several days
You tried back-tracking but that got you nowhere
You're feeling your frustration you've removed your hair
And it's fallen to the floor in clumps
And you feel like the zoo-keeper stuck in the zoo
Locked inside a cage regardless of your trying
'Cos your keys have been swallowed by a giant little lion
Then look through the bars to the people in the crowd
Note that they can eyed and the sighs out loud

Because
Well some of them are sad 'cause they're very very fat
And some of them are sad 'cause they're very very thin
Some of them are sad 'cause they're just a doormat
And some of them are sad 'cause they never give in
Some of them are sad 'cause they don't like drinking
Some of them are sad 'cause they took up thinking
Some of them are sad
Some of them are sad
Some of them are interior designers
But most of them are sad

Some of them are sad 'cause they've got a big winkle
Some of them are sad 'cause it's never been seen
Some of them are sad when they stroke their pickle
Some of them are sad 'cause it's turning green
Some of them are sad 'cause people don't like 'em
Some of them are sad and extremely frightened
Some of them are sad
Some of them are sad
Some of them are all right, actually
But most of them are sad

So
If you feel your life has stalled somewhat
Well, maybe it's stalled, maybe it's flopped
Maybe it's collapsed in an ineffectual heap
You said "sheeps" when you meant to say "sheep"
Well I don't have advice that will make it all better
I don't have the key to undo your fetter
I don't have an answer to the doubts that rankle
Nothing I can say to you will help you cancel
The sadness inside but you're not alone
Look out your window or listen to your phone
Then you'll see that

Well some of them are sad 'cause of what Freud said
Some of them are sad 'cause of Groucho Marx
Some of them are sad 'cause they've been haemorrhoided
Some of them are sad and they like to play darts
Some of them are sad 'cause their schadenfreude
Some of them are sad 'cause they always avoid it
Some of them are sad
Some of them are sad
Some of them get by
But most of them are sad

Some of them are sad 'cause they don't have a willy
Some of them are sad and they're very very silly
Some of them are sad
Some of them are sad
Some of them can smile in public
But most of them are sad

Some of us are sad and they like to admit it
Some of us are sad and attempt to quit it
Some of us are sad to see the poem I've penned
Some of us are sad
And this
Is the end
