QuotesEdit

Andy: “Setting out to write a self pitying song, based around the idea of ‘The Blue Boy’ (Gainsborough) in '91, I ended up with a very positive Kinksian Kroon. All I had to do was turn some great works o'fart on their heads for a new perspective. Some things look better hung upside down. Mussolini being one of them.”

LyricsEdit

Aren't you glad, aren't you glad, aren't you glad, aren't you?

Aren't you glad, aren't you glad?

The laughing Cavalier has laughed so hard he's split from ear to ear

Now aren't you glad you did something good with your life?

The Blue Boy has cheered right up, he's glowing yellow like a buttercup

Now aren't you glad you did something good with your life?

For all too soon, we face the gloom of a yawning grave

So by the ton go spend some fun, don't try and save

The Lacemaker's given in, she's bought some drums and now she makes a din

Aren't you glad you did something good with your life? Aren't you glad?...

The Mona Lisa's changed, she moans no more instead she grins deranged

Now aren't you glad you did something good with your life?

The Night Watch was far too dark 'til they found the switch in the amusement park

Now aren't you glad you did something good with your life?

For all too quickly, we feel the nick of the headman's axe

So tear your bills into lacey frills, sit down relax

The Last Supper's got it wrong so they're back tomorrow for a real ding dong

Now aren't you glad you did something good with your life?

Said, aren't you glad you did something, instead of choosing the dumb thing?

Said aren't you glad you did something good with your life?

Oh what a life!
