Composers: Kevin Ayers

Don't sing no more sad songs
I want to hear some glad songs
I feel the loneliness
Of a million souls

Don't play me those blue tunes
I want to hear some new tunes
I feel the emptiness
You left behind

I wasn't very smart
Because I let you take my heart
Now I just have to start again
Once again

Don't bring no more bad news
Get yourself a new muse
I wish you happiness
In the years to come

I know I wasn’t very smart
Because I let you take my heart
Now I just have to start again
Once again


I say
Stop singing those sad songs
I want to hear some glad songs
I feel the loneliness
Of a million souls

Don't play those old blue tunes
I want to hear some new tunes
I feel the emptiness
You left behind

You know I wasn't very smart
Because I let you take my heart
And now I'll have to start once again
Yes indeed
Once again

All this bad news has got to cease
And the glad news must increase
And I wish you happiness
In all the years to come
