Why Does The Sun Do That?

Why does the sun come out
In a sky of non-stop blue
And brighten up the afternoon
While I am feeling blue?

What happened to those big grey clouds,
That rain that drizzled down
And made it seem appropriate
For me to sit and frown?

Why does your old photograph
Make me want to smile
While I'm quite happy scowling
In my oft-adopted style?

Why does that old blackbird
Sing so gaily in the tree?
It's making me feel cheerful.
Why can't it let me be?

Why do the things around me
Tell me to be glad
While I have tried so blooming hard
To sit here feeling sad?

Why do I write a poem
Full of the joys of life
When I set out intending
To write of woes and strife?

Why do I want to make you laugh
When I could make you cry?
Cos I feel very happy
But I'm blowed if I know why!
