I don’t feel all right,
I don’t feel okay,
I actually feel utterly happy!
I don’t want to sleep,
I don’t need to eat,
Not when I am completely happy!
But what did you say?
Why must you put it that way?
What is wrong with being so happy?
You say I’m manic—
What does that mean?
I finally feel happy
And and now your telling me
That it’s all in my head?
I should go to bed?
That I should be fed?
I heard what you said!
But I say:
I am so happy!
I am so thrilled!
Why are you giving me a pill?
You think that I’m crazy?
Because I like how I’m feeling…
Well I LOVE how I’m feeling!
And now your telling me
That my mind is unreeling?
And this pill will do all the healing?
I say there’s nothing wrong!
Not with my brain!
But YOU are all wrong!
For calling me insane!
I’ve never been this happy!
I’ve never felt this way
But I sure hope this feeling will stay!
I will not take those pills!
I will not calm down!
I will not sit still!
I will NOT wear that gown!
Don’t put that needle in me!
All because I’m happy?!
You are just jealous of me!
You only wish you were this happy!
