"I'm Sad Because I'm Happy" is a SESAME STREET song by OSCAR THE GROUCH.

The song, originally recorded back in 1982, was made into a Season 26 insert. Oscar, in the segment, sings the song on a stormy day in the park, eventually backed by a GROUCH choir (GRUNDGETTA included). Elmo, Zoe, Telly Monster, Rosita, a Honker, Benny Rabbit, Dip the Cat, Grover & Cookie Monster make cameos, being blown away in the storm.

Lyrics

Oh there are days, when skies are gray
& everything goes wrong
When I start yelling, "Go away!"
& people say, "So long!"
When everything's in disarray
I'm right where I belong
When fun's away on holiday
This Grouch must sing this song

I'm sad because I'm happy
& I'm happy, 'cause I'm mad
& I'm mad, cause it sounds sappy
To be happy when you're sad

Yes there are days, when skiesare gray
& all the world looks yucky
When clouds & rain won't go away
The road I'm on turns mucky
My feet splash in the mud & hey,
My toes get wet & gucky
Yes everything just goes my way
I feel so gosh-darn lucky!

(The Grouch Chorale joins in.)

I'm sad (He's sad) because I'm happy (He's happy)
& I'm happy (he's happy), 'cause I'm mad (He's mad)
& I'm mad (He's mad), cause it sounds sappy
To be happy when you're sad

Oscar: Everybody sing!

(Sung in grand style)

I'm sad (He's sad) because I'm happy (He's happy)
& I'm happy (he's happy), 'cause I'm mad (He's mad)
& I'm mad (He's mad), cause it sounds sappy
To be happy when you're sad

(spoken, with music still playing)

Oscar: Hey! Ah, I wish every day was like this!
Grundgetta: Ah, me too, Oskie!
Oscar: Well, if wishes were garbage trucks, Grouches would ride!
Grundgetta: So true, so true!
Oscar: Let's just enjoy the moment. Yeah.
Grundgetta: Yeah.
