Glad to Be Unhappy

Lyrics:Lorenz Hart
Music:Richard Rodgers

The song was publishe 1936.

It was introduced in their 1936 musical On Your Toes by Doris Carson
and David Morris, although it was not popular at the time,
as there was only one 1936 recording of the tune.
In the 1937 London production, it was sung by Gina Malo and Eddie Pola.
The song was performed in the 1954 Broadway revival by Kay Coulter
and Joshua Shelley.

On Your Toes

Look at yourself, if you had a sense of humor
You would laugh to beat the band
Look at yourself, do you still believe the rumor
That romance is simply grand?

Since you took it right on the chin
You have lost that bright toothpaste grin
My mental state is all a-jumble
I sit around and sadly mumble

Fools rush in, so here I am
Very glad to be unhappy
I can't win, but here I am
More than glad to be unhappy

Unrequited love's a bore
And I've got it pretty bad
But for someone you adore
It's a pleasure to be sad

Like a straying baby lamb
With no mammy and no pappy
I'm so unhappy
But oh, so glad!
